Smashing Broadway Musicals vs. Small Experimental Plays: The Future of American Theatre Onstage

A potential analysis of why theatre in America, especially academic theatre, has committed itself to musical theatre and regurgitating Shakespeare rather than experimenting with new, unusual, or under-performed works. Why has financial gain outweighed aesthetic discovery in theatre? Does this have anything to do with the role theatre plays and/or will play in a world that has become more and more dominated by movies and television?

  • This is a super interesting topic! Especially since the increasing number of adapted plays/musicals and jukebox musicals. I would focus more on the last part of your topic the "Why has financial gain outweighed aesthetic discovery in theatre? Does this have anything to do with the role theatre plays and/or will play in a world that has become more and more dominated by movies and television?" this is an important and relevant question. – CassDM 6 years ago
