SJCF: Panel Zoom Discussion (Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy)

Join our panelists on Zoom for a discussion of Albert Tapper’s documentary Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy, an entertaining examination of the unique role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the creation of the modern American musical. The film blends cultural history with revealing perspectives on the origins and meanings of many beloved Broadway songs, stories and shows.

The 2013 film showcases the work of legends such as Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George and Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, Leonard Bernstein, and Stephen Sondheim. Interviews with songwriters and luminaries including Sheldon Harnick, Stephen Schwartz, Harold Prince, Arthur Laurents, Charles Strouse, and Mel Brooks provide insight, alongside standout performances and archival footage.

The documentary is not currently streaming free or for rental, but used copies are available to buy on Ebay.
