A Little Bit of Broadway

West Side Story
2009 Revival Cast

It's hard to believe it took this long for West Side Story to be sung in spanish. In the 2009 revival, Lin-Manual Miranda (last year's winner for best Tony for In the Heights) worked with Stephen Sondheim to have much of the dialogue of the Sharks - the Puerto Ricans - in spanish. It's amazing how much this "simple" change revitalizes this classic American version of Romeo and Juliet.

In the few minutes we have left, here's music from Sondheim's 1976 Pacific Overtures, the story of the coming of the Western World to isolationist Japan, from the Japanese point of view. My favorite number is Someone in a tree.

You can’t spend a July 4th holiday without the marches of John Philip Sousa. But Sousa was much more than marches. He wrote over 300 songs and 15 operettas. Here’s just a few:
Joyce Guyer, soprano – Michael Willson, baritone – Dennis buck, piano
Girls who have loved (from The Free Lance - 1905)
A Serenade in Seville (1924)
Sweetheart, I’m waiting (from El Capitan – 1895)
Stars and Stripes Forever (1898)
Yes indeed, Sousa wrote words to this march – and none of the verses start with “Be kind to your web footed friends…!”
