Thank you for embracing our new series Around the U.S.A. in 80 Musicals! This week, we move down South to the 14 states (and D.C.) that make up the American Southeast. From Maryland down to Florida and over to Louisiana, and covering more than a century, these are both classic and rare musicals. And a few of them played in theaters that no longer exist! Enjoy.
