Wolf: A Problem Like Maria (2002)

A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA: GENDER AND SEXUALITY IN THE AMERICAN MUSICAL | Stacy Wolf

Precis

A Problem Like Maria examines the past and present star-text of four Broadway stars of the so-called Golden Age—Mary Martin, Ethel Merman, Julie Andrews, and Barbra Streisand—and argues that each of them may be read as “lesbian.” Each of these stars occupied a different iteration of “lesbian” representation: Martin as the tomboy, Merman as the butch Jewish Mother, Andrews as the femme, and Streisand as the “queer Jewess.” The project is driven from the position of the “lesbian spectator”—a position defined by desire rather than identity—and her drive to read or re-view musical theatre through a feminist, lesbian lens. 2,169 more words
