Go back in time to explore the Broadway musical and New York City’s Times Square by way of maps. American musicologist and Washington University Professor of Music Todd Decker leads a journey into musical theater history by way of digital maps that chart the development of Times Square, the imaginary worlds of the Broadway musical, and the persistent racial segregation of the American musical stage. This virtual trip includes a stop in St. Louis to explore how the Muny fits into the larger story of the American musical stage.
