In this “musical lecture,” singer Katie Welsh explores the representation of New York City in Broadway musicals, with insights and songs from On the Town, Sweet Charity, Company, Follies, 42nd Street, Annie, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and more. Katie considers: How do characters sing about “N.Y.C.”? How do they feel in this “city of strangers”? How does the big city impact their relationships onstage? Katie sings songs, quotes scholars, explores theater history, and shares musical analysis!
