Milt's File

A file of links relating to Extension 720 with Milt Rosenberg, a talk show on Chicago's WGN Radio.

Friday, March 11, 2005

Tonight on Extension 720: Bette Davis once said that the “only reason anyone goes to Broadway is because they can’t get work in the movies.” But for decades, the Great White Way has been one of the most important centers of American culture. From Showboat and Oklahoma! to Wicked and Avenue Q, the American musical has slowly evolved into one of the most powerful and popular forms of entertainment. Tonight, we will explore the history of Broadway through song with SHELDON PATINKIN, chair of the theatre department at Columbia College and an expert in the history of musicals. This show will be guest hosted by Chicago Tribune columnist Rick Kogan.
