Event description

Description

Lyrics are the foundation of musical theater storytelling and, for many playwrights, the final frontier. Over ten weeks, this class will cover the basics of lyric writing craft—song structure, scansion, rhyme, and more—allowing you to channel your existing storytelling impulses into a song. In class, we’ll examine great lyrics of the musical theater canon, analyzing what makes them tick. Through weekly assignments, you’ll begin your own exploration of the classic musical theater song forms and learn to write with music, a musical collaborator, and a librettist in mind. Whether you’re a playwright who wants to try a hand at lyric writing, or one who simply wants to be a more fluent musical theater collaborator, you’ll leave this class with a solid foundation in lyrical storytelling.
