Musical Theater Project
If ever there were an art form that speaks “in American,” it’s the
Broadway and Hollywood musical. That’s because we Americans created it
– and its impact on our cultural history is incalculable. Our everyday
conversations are laced with quotations from its lyrics, and its
classic melodies fill the air in everything from contemporary
recordings to radio and television ads.
Theater Project (TMTP) is a nonprofit organization formed
to help keep this uniquely American art form alive, and to help foster
its development for the pleasure of future generations.
One of TMTP’s programs is the nationally
syndicated radio show Footlight Parade,
distributed free of charge to public radio stations nationwide. But the
organization also produces and creates an array of educational programs
for people of all ages.
