Women have played a much more significant role in the history of the Broadway Musical than they are generally given credit for. In this episode I share the often overlooked stories of Broadway’s groundbreaking female choreographers including Aida Overton Walker, Gertrude Hoffman, Albertina Rauch, Hanya Holm,, Onna White, and especially Agnes DeMille who may be the most important woman in the history of the Musical. I also profile the women who direct and choreograph during the modern era, and the two queer women that basically invented the art and craft of Broadway lighting design: Jean Rosenthal & Tharon Musser. Special thanks to Alan Fitzpatrick for his vocal acting contributions.
