Presented by Hofstra Professor James Kolb. On January 24, 2012, Time Out New York published an article titled “Broadway’s 25 all-time greatest divas”, which stated that the archetypal Broadway star is a woman. Ethel Merman, Mary Martin, Gwen Verdon, and Carol Channing, all legendary ladies were the bulbs that lit the Great White Way in its golden and silver ages, and they still dominate the mythology of the genre. This program will look at Time Out New York’s list and consider the pluses and minuses in regard to the order in which they have presented them. Registration begins September 2nd. Free
