We’ll move through the evolution of musical theater up to the present with brief pauses to look at different types of shows and showcase some particularly important composers such as Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein and more.

Noa Noa: The Savage Art of Paul Gauguin 
 One does not need to be an art connoisseur to know something about Gauguin. For many he is still the purveyor of the most seductive dreams unsatisfied by Western culture. Gauguin rejected his responsibilities, his family and career traveling to the ends of the earth in search of a tropical paradise, an Eden that he intended to immortalize. He envisioned himself to be a savage, tightly wrapped, restricted by clothing and following the rituals of an ordinary bourgeois Parisian businessman. Gauguin lusted for the erotic,  forbidden fruit, never tasted by most. This two-part visually-enhanced program follows his footsteps, retracing those formative phases through his creative work.
