Ep. 33 "A Little Glimpse Behind the Scenes" | Library Stories


Ben West, founder and director of UnsungMusicalsCo., is on a mission to give new life to the lesser-known authors and works of American musical theater. With the help of the unparalleled collections at NYPL’s Library for the Performing Arts, Ben is able to trace the creation of works both canonical and obscure through early drafts, sketches, and notes from the authors. Learn more about Ben’s work, and how LPA gives him a glimpse behind the curtain of musical theater history, in this week’s Library Story.
