Unprecedented military defeat in Vietnam, a toppled president, charismatic leaders assassinated, the worst riots in U.S. history — all that, and 1968 had barely begun.  This 2-part class covers the most tumultuous year in recent history, in which passionate hopes and searing tragedies alternated on almost a daily basis.  Examine seismic shifts beyond our shores, from the May student-worker protests that drove the French republic to the brink of collapse and De Gaulle into hiding, to the Prague Spring that brought hope for reforming the Communist bloc.  Watch as a Democratic convention is torn apart by protests and violence, just days after Soviet tanks crush Czechs’ freedom.  See how a segregationist candidate shattered the New Deal coalition, and still a bold about-face by a pro-war Democrat led to a photo finish with Richard Nixon.  The course mixes great speeches and classic images with little-known accounts of the behind-the-scenes decisions that led to some of the most shocking events in our time.  Always up for discussion is whether a shift in a single leader’s judgment, a few votes, or a single bullet, might have changed the course of history.

Walk the streets of the Great White Way� as we trace the history of New York’s Broadway theater district from Oscar Hammerstein in the 1890s to Walt Disney in the 1990s. With a century of history behind them, the 40 surviving Broadway theaters stand as stunning works of art in themselves, as well as monuments to the lively history of American theater. Many were built as lavish headquarters for Broadway’s great impresarios, who spared no expense in their decor. The Belasco Theater on 44th Street was designed to the specifications of the extravagant David Belasco, the self-styled “Bishop of Broadway”� who, among other eccentricities, wore a clerical collar. The Little Theater, built for aristocratic New England producer Winthrop Ames, originally sat a tiny audience of 300; its precious Georgian style facade looks less like a typical Broadway theater than a Colonial New England manor house. Producer John Cort’s theater was designed as a recreation of the Petit Trianon in Versailles. Today these jewels sparkle among all the brash new skyscrapers that have transformed the once dingy and dangerous Times Square. The tour includes it all: theaters, skyscrapers, and city planning at its most controversial.
