Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy
Documentary | USA | 2012 | 90 mins | English
Director: Michael Kantor
A Jewish Legacy explores the unique role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the creation of the modern American musical and many of the songs that comprise "The American Songbook." We learn of the music's origins in Yiddish Theatre and Jewish liturgical melodies. The songs of the Broadway musical were created almost exclusively by Jewish Americans as highlighted by footage, and interviews and conversations with such greats as Stephen Sondheim, Jules Styne, Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, Kurt Weill, Leonard Bernstein. Directed by Michael Kantor.
