This sequel program surveys the musical theater since Hair. Selected shows reflect the new focus on topical issues, the importance of the "concept" musical, the entry of black productions into the Broadway mainstream, and other significant trends of the '70s. The program ends with a peek at Cats, which set the stage for a host of British imports during the '80s.  Among the shows covered are Company, Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Godspell, Pippin, A Chorus Line, Annie, Purlie, The Wiz, Ain't Misbehavin', Sweeney Todd, 42nd Street, and Evita.
