This Month: Anoth­er Openin’, Anoth­er Show!

The music of the leg­endary Cole Porter infused the 20th C in almost every way that music was applied. End­less­ly cov­ered, con­tin­u­al­ly rel­e­vant, his dis­tinct style left an incred­i­ble lega­cy to the musi­cal  the­ater stage.

The Mag­ic of The Musi­cal explores the blend­ing of music and dra­ma — fea­tur­ing the songs, his­to­ry, and lore that make up the musi­cal the­ater canon. Learn more about some of your favorite shows and com­posers as we cue the orches­tra, and the over­ture begins.
