ST. LOUIS, MO - It was a decade of change in the United States and that made for changes at the Muny as well. We're talking about the 1960s when the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam War were dominating the country. Theater audiences still wanted musicals, but they began to seek out more contemporary shows with modern themes and a bit of an edge. Shows like "Gypsy" and "West Side Story" began to play on the famous St. Louis stage.
Listen to songs you would have heard at the Muny from 1959-1968.
