    OFJCC Palo Alto JCCDancer, choreographer and director Bob Fosse (think "jazz hands") said that most songs fall into two categories: 1) "I Want" songs and 2) "I Am" songs. Usually the second or third number in a musical, the "I Want" song is a way to engage the audience with the main character's hopes, dreams, goals or desires, which often propel him/her through the rest of the show.

    Join James Sokol for a journey with audio and video performance clips of these compelling and propelling Broadway songs. From soaring ballads to charming ditties, songs will come from the "Golden Age" to recent shows. Explore "I Want" songs in our October series and "I Am" songs in our December series.” Come for the songs; stay for the fun!
