4PM Exploring Broadway: “I Want” Songs

4:00PM - 5:30PM  

Thursdays, October 7, 14, 21 & 28 

1-2:30pm (PT), 2-3:30pm (MT), 3-4:30pm (CT), 4-5:30pm (ET) 

on Zoom 


Dancer, choreographer, director, Bob Fosse (think “jazz hands!”), said that most songs fall into two categories: 1) “I Want” songs and 2) “I Am” songs. Explore “I Want” songs in our October series and “I Am” songs in our December series.” 


Usually the 2nd or 3rd number in a musical, the “I Want” song is a way to engage the audience with the main character’s hopes, dreams, goals, or desires, which often propels him/her through the rest of the show.  


Join James Sokol for a journey with audio & video performance clips of these compelling and propelling songs. From soaring ballads to charming ditties, songs will come from the “Golden Age” to recent shows.  Come for the songs; stay for the fun!
