Tradition: The Art of Exploring Theatrical History
Tradition: Exploring the Art of Theatrical History is a one-hour class in which a new musical is brought in every week, and during the hour we discuss the show's theatrical history. This includes talking about the show's conception, documented figures, untold backstage stories, and the way each show had a unique impact in the industry. The class objective is to give the members of the community a chance to interact, listen to, and discuss productions both old and new.
Originally taught in Manhattan, this lecture series is also available in Brooklyn, Queens, Westchester, Boulder (CO), and Los Angeles (CA)!
This class is taught to children, young adults, and those who have been immersed in the theatre for decades. This class is for those who want to learn about theatrical history, or simply reminisce about some of their favorite shows.
Meet The Team
"It's always a pleasure working with Jarrett. My residents always enjoy attending his lectures as it brings up memories and they love hearing facts and stories about the industry that they had never known before. He's very flexible and willing to discuss other theatrical works and elements such as dramas, writing, and directing. After each session, my residents would say “When will he be coming back?” I know Jarrett is passionate about what he does, and we always can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us."

"Jarrett's lectures are one of our most highly requested and attended events, and we are grateful to have him featured on our monthly calendar of events. Students enjoy learning more about the shows they love, the controversies behind them, and the histories of how they began. Jarrett is truly an exceptional lecturer. He takes us on a journey through each show’s history including its songs, music, composers, and actors. Jarrett is beyond his years in how well he articulates his knowledge. It’s as if he was in the same room as these important industry figures! His lectures have become a cornerstone in our programming and look forward to continuing to learn from the master himself."
