Praise for our Exploring Broadway series

 “These classes are so good that I have thank you. You share so many wonderful insights and make it so much fun. Your choices of songs are absolutely great. I’m already looking forward to the next ones.” – Shirley L. 

 “Thanks for the delightful and educational classes. They are both interesting and fun; the presenter and the material were terrific.” – Sandi B. 

 “Thank you so much! I loved the class — learned several things I did not know — and very much looking forward to next week!” – Linda C. 


 

Exploring Broadway: “I Want” Songs on Thursdays, October 7, 14, 21 & 28  from 4-5:30pm (ET) on Zoom 

Dancer, choreographer, director, Bob Fosse (think “jazz hands!”), said that most songs fall into two categories: 1) “I Want” songs and 2) “I Am” songs. Explore “I Want” songs in our October series and “I Am” songs in our December series.” Usually the 2nd or 3rd number in a musical, the “I Want” song is a way to engage the audience with the main character’s hopes, dreams, goals, or desires, which often propels him/her through the rest of the show.  

Join James Sokol for a journey with audio & video performance clips of these compelling and propelling songs. From soaring ballads to charming ditties, songs will come from the “Golden Age” to recent shows.  Come for the songs; stay for the fun! For details & tickets, click here.
