Episode 12: The Harbach, Hammerstein, Sondheim, Miranda Connection, Part 2

In this episode Albert Evans and I continue our exploration of the amazing "legacy chain" during which the art and craft of writing Broadway Musicals was handed down directly from Otto Harbach to Oscar Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim to Lin-Manwell Miranda. The shows of these four great artists encompass almost the entire 125 year history of the Musical and demonstrate how the Musical evolved from "Silver Age" to "Golden Age" to the "Modern Era", and right up to HAMILTON today.
