Summary
Unfinished output from the third episode in the six-part PBS documentary Broadway, the American musical. In the Depression, a musical theater dichotomy emerged: shows like Cole Porter's Anything Goes, starring singer Ethel Merman, offered glamour as an escape, while others -- like Of thee I sing and The cradle will rock -- dealt with the era's political concerns. George Gershwin created his epic folk opera, Porgy and Bess. The advent of World War II prompted Irving Berlin to write one of his biggest hits, This is the Army.
