Something for the Boys : Musical Theater and Gay Culture

Clum (English, drama, Duke University) leads a thoughtful and entertaining tour through the world of divas and brassy overtures that is musical theater, and looks into musical theater's hold on gay men. He reveals the appeal of Ethel Merman and Carol Channing, examines the lives of Noel Coward, Cole Porter, and Lorenz Hart, and discusses the homophobia of Rodgers and Hammerstein and the mixed musical signals of Stephen Sondheim.
