The Golden Age of Broadway
with Paul Knight
Paul Knight has huge experience working on this repertoire as a Music Director in the West End. He will explore an authentic approach to character, and discover where fresh thought and a reimagining might take your song, whilst celebrating the tone and quality of our voices.
Between 1943 and 1959, Broadway experienced a Golden Age, producing musicals still loved and performed to this day. Rodgers & Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Lerner & Loewe, Cole Porter, and Frank Loesser all pioneered new forms of narrative storytelling, creating an age of musical classics.
