Research Project on musical Theatre#1
Posted: 1/3/13 at 10:53pm
Hi everyone, This year I have to undertake a major research project and I am trying to find ides about what subject I should research. I came up with the topic of how classic and contemporary musicals are relevant today but I'm a bit stuck as to how I can properly research that, plus I could easily come up with answers to it off the top of my head.

I would really like to stay within the subject of musical theatre, or at least musicals (so that could extend to movie musicals as well). Keeping in mind that I need to find a fair bit of information through primary sources.
Any help or suggestions would be great.
