An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Monday, repeating until February 8, 2021
Stephen Kitsakos examines three seminal works of theatre, explored through both a socio-cultural and socio-political lens, that departed from traditional structure by introducing innovations in the craft of libretto, music & lyrics. Each work examines the sexual lives of its principal characters using the conventions of musical theatre to edify, educate and entertain. The methodology includes reading and streaming content in advance of each class.
