The Lost World of Industrial Musicals

Steve Young spent two decades writing jokes for David Letterman, so it follows that his sense of humor skews somewhere between "dry understatement" and "bizarre Americana." He’s in town to present The Lost World of Industrial Musicals, his 90-minute tour through the strange, mid-century period when America’s love of musical theater met America’s love of internal marketing. With clips and commentary, Young introduces viewers to productions meant to be seen only at business meetings and professional conventions—among others, there’s a "1967 Purina dog food song and dance stage show" and a "1970 Hamm’s beer sales meeting film animated by Hanna-Barbera."
