Classic musical; plot point that I didn't get; kinda dark Show more
I saw The Music Man at Stratford today
In the last scene, the children come out wearing their uniforms and they play their instruments and this saves Hill from being murdered by the mob
But a major plot point of the play is that he can't actually teach music
So how did the kids learn to play?
Is this the feverish last dream of a man as the mob rips him apart?
I don't get it
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
