“That’s Entertainment!: MGM Musicals Part I” at BAM
No studio did musicals better than MGM: theirs were bigger, splashier, more tuneful, and more innovative than any others. During Hollywood’s Golden Age, the MGM lot was home to a staggering array of talent: legendary producer (and lyricist) Arthur Freed; the writing duo of Betty Comden and Adolph Green; songwriter and arranger Roger Edens; stars like Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, and Fred Astaire; and visionary directors like Vincente Minnelli and Stanley Donen. Their work represents the Dream Factory at its dreamiest and the apotheosis of this quintessentially American art form.
