Part 5: In the late 50s and early 60s, Broadway continued producing enduring hits, including the groundbreaking West Side story choreographed by Jerome Robbins with music by Leonard Bernstein. But in the era of rock & roll and tumultuous social change, Broadway reinvented itself and established new traditions. The conceptual theater of John Kander & Fred Ebb's Cabaret, as directed by Hal Prince, was followed by the rock musical Hair and the urban angst of Stephen Sondheim's Company. Bob Fosse showcased sexy cynicism in Chicago, and Michael Bennett created the blockbuster A chorus line. With Prince and Sondheim's production of Sweeney Todd, the musical reached unexpected heights in style and material31ocn611339856com0.19Fred Ebb : (1933-)Criticism, interpretation, etc11ocn133583808visu20031.00[Interview with Chita Rivera : raw footage]InterviewsRaw interview footage used for the documentary Broadway, the American musical.

Actor Jerry Orbach, known for his work in the musical theater, as well as television and film, begins a discussion of his stage career with his role as the lawyer Billy Flynn in the 1975 musical Chicago. Orbach discusses the numbers he performed "All I care about is love" and "Razzle dazzle"; Chicago's style of "world weary decadence"; its source material, the 1926 play which introduced the character Roxie Hart; and the objectives of its choreographer Bob Fosse. Orbach describes the "wonderful, seedy, crummy, glorious" Broadway of the mid-1950s through the 1970s, which began to change after that period. Orbach discusses the commentary on celebrity in Kander & Ebb's Chicago; the songwriting of John Kander and Fred Ebb, whose witty and stylish songs for musicals pushed the story along dramatically. Orbach goes on to discuss the 1980 musical 42nd Street in which he starred, and its producer David Merrick, a former lawyer from Saint Louis who became one of the most famous and prolific producers on Broadway. Orbach, who was close to Merrick personally, describes Merrick's commercial and artistic activities, his facility for knowing what works in the theater, and his ability to get those with whom he worked to do what he wanted. Orbach discusses the opening of 42nd Street, during which Merrick cancelled previews, changed the date of opening night, and finally after the last curtain call on opening night, came onstage and announced that the show's director Gower Champion had died that day. Merrick, Orbach says, "had a flair for the dramatic, a flair for the press." He describes 42nd Street as a classic backstage story, a love story and a story of the Depression. He also discusses its tunes, which refer back to Vaudeville and Burlesque. Orbach discusses the production on Broadway of large scale shows from England, beginning with the musical Cats by Andrew Lloyd Weber, which arrived on Broadway in 1982. These shows, Orbach feels, offer pageantry, high production values, and some wonderful performances, but do not live up to the standards of the musicals in which he performed. Orbach admires the current Broadway production The producers, as well as the work of choreographer Susan Stroman, and Twyla Tharp in Movin' out, but feels that there are very few "great," original musicals currently being produced on Broadway. Orbach discusses amplification in the theater, a "huge" change which affected the musical, which Orbach believes delivers an inauthentic experience to the audience, and dissuades performers from learning to project to the back of the theater. Orbach discusses his feelings as he hears the overture begin backstage as a performer, his enjoyment of communicating with the audience, and his inability to become bored with his role, even after several months of performing it. Orbach concludes discussion on tape one with his views on what the theater means for the audience, and the images Broadway conjures for him11ocn676807387mix1.00Prince, HaroldHarold Prince papersHarold Prince (1928-) is an American director and producer, primarily of musicals, but also of plays, operas and, occasionally, films. His Broadway career, which began in the 1950s and continues to the present day, has earned him 21 Tony Awards, more than any other individual. The Harold Prince papers (1954-1999) consist of administrative files and production files documenting his professional life as a director and producer, and a small amount of personal papers. Administrative files illustrate the day-to-day operations of Prince's production office. Production files contain detailed information on virtually all of Prince's shows from The Pajama Game (1954) to Parade (1999). Materials include business records, subject files, ledgers, contracts, professional and personal correspondence, scripts and drafts, photographs, programs, publicity materials, awards, costume sketches, set designs, lighting plots, and scrapbooks11ocn081262625visu19671.00The 21st Annual Tony Awards11ocn056962490visu19911.00And the world goes 'round (premiere: arrivals)Unedited news footage showing the arrival of several celebrities at the premiere of the Off-Broadway musical And the world goes 'round, a revue of songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb.
