APJCC Class: Jewish Musical Theater, Composers, and Lyricists


When you think of Jewish musical theater, you probably think of Fiddler on the Roof. But the Jewish legacy on Broadway goes far beyond that. Many of the leading lights of American musical theater are Jewish — from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Gershwin, Berlin, and Sondheim.

Join us for a trip down memory lane with instructor Stephen S. Gill. You’ll be entertained musically while learning some history about the composers and their music.

This video clip gives you a glimpse of one of our classes in 2016.

The Jewish Musical Theater program for seniors is made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley and sponsorship by HearWell Audiology. All Cultural Arts programs at the APJCC are made possible, in part, by generous contributions from Sylvia & Leonard Metz, Doris & Rick Davis, and Bill Lister. The APJCC is proud to be a part of the Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood, co-funded by the Koret Foundation and the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture.
