“From Orpheus to My Fair Lady”
by Dr. Carol Reynolds
Broadway musicals are far more than entertainment. In fact, a direct line runs between the Ancient Greeks’ use of music in their dramas and the structure of musical theater today. Let’s trace that connection, from Aristophanes through the Renaissance genius Monteverdi up to today’s Broadway hit Hamilton.
