John Kander and Fred Ebb have the twin distinctions of being the longest-running composer-lyricist team in Broadway history (42 years) and of having written the longest-running American musical on Broadway ("Chicago"). Their shows have won numerous awards and given us many standards of the Great American Songbook. Each online session will be primarily lecture with video and audio clips, but there will be an opportunity to submit questions and make comments. A course website will provide handouts as well as links to online videos. Guest appearances will include Liza Minnelli, Chita Rivera, Hal Prince, Frank Sinatra, and a stadium full of New York Yankees fans. Come join us: after all, “life is a cabaret, old chum”—even if we have to enjoy it on Zoom. | Lecture + Q&A; Listening to audio recordings; Viewing videos.
