In Fifty Key Stage Musicals: The Podcast co-hosts Robert W. Schneider and Andrew Child do an in-depth exploration of fifty musicals that altered the landscape of American Musical Theater, all of which are explored in the Routledge Press book, Fifty Key Stage Musicals.
Fifty Key Stage Musicals: The Podcast will look at those musicals everyone considers to be a landmark like Shuffle Along, Show Boat, Oklahoma, Company, and Hamilton but will also examine musicals that deserve to be recognized more for their contribution to musical theater history like Promises, Promises, the 1994 revival of Grease, and Seussical.
Each episode will feature guests like Susan Stroman, Lianah Sta. Ana, Jerrell L. Henderson, Stephen Flaherty, Marcia Milgrom Dodge, Davóne Tines, Carla Mirabal Rodriguez, Lee Roy Reams, and Brian Yorkey and they will place a contemporary lens on such musicals as Porgy and Bess, West Side Story, and Miss Saigon to examine their impact on the community of artists who tell those stories.
