'Traditional'?

Postby Dodger'smum » Fri Sep 07, 2018 7:08 am

Could anyone clarify for me what 'traditional' musical theatre is? Does it mean anything, say, pre 60s or is it just a way of saying MT et al?
DS wants to sing a song from 13 for an audition but it can't be 'traditional' MT. Bit confused. :-s
Thank you x

I'm not sure, but as long as your audition song choice seems in a similar vein to the musical he is auditioning for you can't go too far wrong! Maybe they mean not Hamilton!?

Its not really a recognised trm as such but I suspect they mean standard legit/book musicals.

Perhaps go for something jukebox style.

I would have thought it is musicals from say Rogers & Hammerstein, Gershwin - that sort of thing - maybe look at musicals such as Oklahoma, Funny Girl, West Side Story and many more Pre 1960's.x
