Ten works of American musical theater have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama since 1932—roughly one per decade—and they are quite an eclectic lot. We’ll begin with George and Ira Gershwin’s "Of Thee I Sing" and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s "South Pacific." Other major works will include "Fiorello!," "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," "A Chorus Line," "Sunday in the Park with George," "Rent," and "Hamilton." For each work, we will explore its background, listen to the score, and speculate on why it was selected for this honor. | Lecture + Q&A.
