The post-Golden Age period in musical theatre, which began roughly in the 1960s and continued to 1969, represents a significant departure from the traditional musical styles of the Golden Age. It is characterised by a shift in themes, styles, and storytelling techniques and saw the beginning of more diverse narratives, experimental music, and socially relevant topics.

Exploring songs from this era allows singers to engage with diverse stories, musical styles, and character dynamics, helping them develop their skills and connect with audiences in a contemporary context.
