The Broadway musical is a distinctly American art form, and it has shaped the country's cultural landscape in major ways. In BROADWAY NATION, David Armstrong tells the story of how immigrants, Jews, queers, African-Americans, and other outcasts invented the musical, and how they changed America in the process.

Armstrong is a professor at the University of Washington School of Drama, and this podcast was inspired by his popular lecture course. This course tells the hidden history of the Broadway musical, from its beginnings as a Jewish American art form to its status as a global phenomenon today. Drawing on a wealth of musicals and live performances, the course explores Broadway musicals' relationship with social, political, and historical contexts.

In BROADWAY NATION, Armstrong goes beyond the musicals themselves to tell the story of the men, women, and children who created them, often in the face of enormous adversity. In the course of the podcast, Armstrong introduces listeners to the most important Broadway musicals and their creators, and explores the most fascinating and compelling insights and controversies in the history of the Broadway musical.

BROADWAY NATION is an entertaining and illuminating podcast that will open your ears and eyes to the Broadway musical's deep and often surprising connections to American life.
