1776 ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 899 libraries worldwide
1776 is a delightful musical celebration of the founding of The United States of America. The story centers around the familiar historical characters as they organize a movement for independence from Mother England. All events lead up to that most significant date, July 4, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed. This is the DVD "restored" version which runs ca. 166 minutes -- longer than the theatrical release cut, yet shorter than the laserdisc "restored" version.

Conversation with Stuart Ostrow by Sidney L Berger ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Sidney Berger noted that the University of Houston is an active and valued part of Houston in the area of musical and non-musical theater with great theater facilities. The vision is to create new theater. Students must be trained not only to become consumers of art, but to produce, write and act in the theater. Stuart Ostrow said that his commandments as a producer are: producers must know their writers' works; loud is good; and always celebrate being in the theater. Risk taking is good for theater, never knowing when or how a play unfolds. Ostrow wants to surprise people and produce shows that they thought impossible to produce. He wants to discover what has not been written before. Theater should change your life. Two generations of song writers, since the Beattles and Bob Dillon, have been lost to musical theater because today's song writers do not write songs with lasting quality. Collaboration in musicals is difficult. Ostrow wants to integrate professional artists with student artists in musical theater, so that students can learn from the best.
