What are the elements that distinguish a truly great musical from the run-of-the-mill? This distinctively American art form combines music, dance, drama, design and comedy in a package that can straddle the divide between high art and great entertainment. Broadway combines the thrill of live music with the compelling storytelling and drama of watching a movie or TV show and, when done with incredible care and sensitivity, the combination of the two can lead to something transformative.

Sean Hartley is the director of Theater@Kaufman, the musical theater division of the Kaufman Music Center in New York City, where he curates, produces and hosts the concert series Broadway Close Up and Broadway Playhouse.
