Olios: Drop-in classes led by professors
New York is the city that never sleeps, and her name is always written in bold letters on a marquee, outlined in neon and flashing bulbs and displayed proudly on Broadway. While the Theater District might feel like a permanent New York fixture to the island natives, it's anything but: the evolution of the musical as a genre was sculpted and shaped by the radical changes in New York's Theater District and cultural revolutions over the last 100 years. In this Olio we'll trace the origins of the Theater District in New York and track the changes made over the last 100 years through important examples from the genre.
