Modern Broadway Essentials

The Great White Way has since featured a wide variety of songs performed by an expansive cast: profane puppets in Avenue Q, existentially troubled missionaries in The Book of Mormon, rapping forefathers in Hamilton, singers living out the songs of jukebox-musical heroes Alanis Morissette and Tina Turner, and even classic characters from modern-minded updates of shows like Oklahoma!
