Exploring Broadway:

Melodies w/Meaningful Messages

Two Thursdays, February 3 & 10

1-2:15pm (PT), 2-3:15pm (MT), 3-4:15pm (CT), 4-5:15pm (ET)

on Zoom

Musical theater may be stereotyped as light, frothy, romantic, even silly. But, from its earliest days, the art form has taken on serious issues within the confines of a lighter style, often making challenging subjects more palpable.

From looking at racial & religious prejudice to gender roles, sexual orientation, political practices, and more, songs provide a unique approach to dealing with major social issues.

Join James Sokol on a journey with audio & video performance clips through songs of protest, social commentary and others with meaningful messages.

Come for the songs; stay for the fun!

The Fine Print:

Fortunately, we’ve had very few issues, but just to be clear…

Your Zoom “Event Link”: The Zoom event link will be emailed to all registrants 2-days prior to the first class. To help it land in your “inbox,” before registering, please add the following emails to your contacts:

  • James Sokol — jsokol@marinjcc.org
  • JCC Alliance — alliance@marinjcc.org

Registrants are requested to make sure the email w/link has arrived by the evening of Feb. 1st. If the email does not arrive, please see “Troubleshooting” below.

The email w/link will be re-sent to all registrants about 2-hours prior to the event. NB: However, if it landed somewhere other than in your inbox upon registration, it will probably do the same later.

Have a Comcast email? Please refer to this guide: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/spam-filters-and-email-blocking-new-experience.

Troubleshooting: We will do our best to remedy any issues. Registrants who have NOT received the email w/link are asked to check their email “junk” and “spam” folders. If found, please move the email to your inbox. If the email/link is still not there, please contact James (see below) immediately.

Late Troubleshooting: We will try our best – but cannot guarantee – help with Zoom links to guests contacting James less than 30-minutes prior to the event.

Live Only: In agreement with our guides, artists, instructors, special guests, etc., events are not recorded. Make-up sessions are unavailable. Credit/refund is not given for missed events.

Liability: While we will do our best to remedy any issues, The Osher Marin JCC & its Program Partners cannot be held responsible for 1) issues related to Eventbrite or Zoom, 2) ticket buyers not following the instructions above, nor 3) packing, shipping, or deliver services of food/beverages not received in time for tasting events.
