In the beginning, the Broadway musical had one thing on its mind: sex.
The chorus girls were leggy, the comedians were blue, and the songwriters were happy hedonists like Cole Porter, whose 1930 musical “The New Yorkers” featured songs so scandalous that they were banned on the radio. For decades after that, sex sold on Broadway, from the eroticized choreography of Bob Fosse to the nudie musicals that reigned supreme in the 1970s. Host Jack Viertel looks at 100 years of life upon the wicked stage.
Join us tonight for conversation and performances as The Greene Space teams up with New York City Center to present another season of Encores! Unscripted — our series exploring how musicals have reflected and shaped American life.
