The Making Of 'I Was Only 19'

ABC2 April 18, 2010

In mid-January 2006 The Herd, an independent Australian hip-hop group approached Broken Yellow, a small Sydney-based production company, to start work on the music video for I Was Only 19. The song is a cover of the Redgum version which was a Vietnam War anthem. The music video is set in the Vietnam jungle and attempts to illustrate the daily struggles of a Vietnam veteran in the aftermath of the war. The music video forms a moving tribute not only to the song but also to the Vietnam veterans and their message.

West Side Story not only brings untraditional subject matter to the musical stage, it ushers in a new breed of director/choreographer who insists on performers who can dance, sing and act. But by the time Jerome Robbins' last original musical, Fiddler on the Roof, closes after a record run of 3,242 performances in 1972, the world of Broadway has changed forever. Rock 'n' roll, civil rights and Vietnam usher in new talents, many trained by the retiring masters, taking musical theatre in daring new directions with innovative productions like Hair, the first Broadway musical with an entire score of rock music.

The Great Depression proves to be a dynamic period of creative growth on Broadway, and a dichotomy in the musical theatre emerges. Productions like Cole Porter's Anything Goes offer glamour and high times as an escape, while others - such as Of Thee I Sing, which satirises the American political system, and the remarkable WPA production of The Cradle Will Rock, about a steel strike - deal directly with the era's social and political concerns.
