Reel Change: The Movie Musical (Part II)

Today's Reel Change concludes our delightful dive into the history of the Movie Musical. We continue our travel backwards in time, as we step song by song down memory lane. We hope today's selections (by no means intended as an exhaustive 'greatest of' list) spark joy in the way only great movie musicals can.

Join us and be prepared - you may find yourself suddenly and uncontrollably bursting into song.

[Note: This 2-part podcast focuses on songs from live-action Movie Musicals. A future Reel Change will cover the wonderful tradition of music from Animated Musicals].
