The ’60s was an explosive decade in the American musical theatre. Heavy-hitters and musicals that would later earn “classic” status debuted, including Fiddler on the Roof; She Loves Me; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum; Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat; Hello, Dolly!; Promises, Promises; Camelot; and Hair—to name a few. This week’s Playbill Mixtape features the lesser-known tunes from scores of 1960s musicals. Consider this your education.
