Commissioned by Birmingham Hippodrome, No Business Like Show Business: A History of Musical Theatre is a six-week adult learning course charting the development of musical theatre from its antecedents through to contemporary directions in musical theatre writing. The course explores the development of the modern musical particularly focusing on it’s function as a form of popular entertainment and representation in musical theatre, and offers reflections on the socio-political and historical contexts the instigated key changes in musical theatre and what these tell us about the periods in which they were made.
