A Little Bit of Broadway

42nd Street

A long time ago, Broadway would produce a musical, which Hollywood would buy the rights and make a movie. Often that movie bore no resemblance to the Broadway show, but hey, whatever, right? However, with the exception of the 1974 flop Gigi, Broadway never borrowed from Hollywood. That changed in 1980, some folks got together and adapted Busby Berkeley’s lively backstage musical, 42nd Street, for the Broadway stage. It’s your basic young girl from the hicks comes to Broadway to become a star, has lots of trials and tribulations, but in the end gets the role and stardom.

Act I
• Overture
• Audition
• Young and Healthy
• Shadow Waltz
• Go Into Your Dance
• You're Getting to Be a Habit With Me
• Getting Out of Town
• Dames
• I Know Now
• I Know Now (Reprise)
• We're in the Money
• Act I Finale

Act II
• Sunny Side to Every Situation
• Lullaby of Broadway
• About a Quarter to Nine
• Shuffle Off to Buffalo
• 42nd Street
• 42nd Street (Reprise)
• Finale Ultimo

Music Harry Warren
Lyrics Al Dubin
Book Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble
Basis Novel by Bradford Ropes

This recording comes from the 2001 revivial.
Characters
• "Billy Lawlor" (Leading tenor in Pretty Lady) :David Elder
• "Peggy Sawyer" (Nervous but enthusiastic new chorus girl from out of town) :Kate Levering
• "Julian Marsh" (Famous, but notorious director) : Micheal Cumpsty
• "Dorothy Brock" (Past her prime Prima Donna, renowned for inability to dance) :Christine Elbersole

CROSS-CURRENTS, Mariah's Monday Edition, 22March2010

Thanks for listening to my guest-host gig today, the TransGlobal Thursday (wildly ECLECTIC) edition of CrossCurrents! I had a great time taking calls from folks trying to answer the question for the Lance Whalen CD giveaway (his new release, Civil Twilight) . . .

The answer: Dolly Parton's Jolene and Joss Stone's Fell in Love with a Boy are connected by Jack White (of the White Stripes). The White Stripes covered Jolene on their live Under Blackpool Lights AND The White Stripes wrote/recorded Fell in Love with a Girl (which Joss Stone changed to "boy" for her cover on The Soul Sessions). Congrats to Paula for the most correct answer to a tough question!

A Little Bit of Broadway

Love Never Dies
Act 2

Last week we listened to Act 1 of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s latest musical. He has stated that "What I think is that Love Never Dies is a completely standalone musical that just happens to have the same four characters as the Phantom." (3/10/2010 CNN)

Well, it still sounds like a sequel to me. It’s scheduled to open at the Neil Simon Theater on Broadway this fall.

Music: -- Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics: -- Glenn Slater
Book: -- Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ben Elton, Glenn Slater
Basis: -- Elements of The Phantom of Manhattan by Frederick Forsyth and an original treatment by Ben Elton

The Phantom: -- Ramin Karimloo
Christine Daaé: -- Sierra Boggess
Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny: -- Joseph Millson
Madame Giry: -- Liz Robertson
Meg Giry: -- Summer Strallen
Fleck: -- Niamh Perry
Squelch: -- Adam Pierce
Gangle: -- Jami Reid-Quarrell

*****************
Once upon a time, there was a Cuban band leader called Desi who married a redheaded comedienne called Lucy and they had a family. Now, many years later the daughter, after singing on Broadway and at Vegas and in cabarets and clubs, has recorded a tribute album to her visionary father. Here’s Lucie Desiree Arnaz y de Ball, singing songs that show her Latin Roots.

You and the Night and the Music -- Revenge with Music (1934) Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz
I’ll See You in C-U-B-A -- (1920) Irving Berlin
Babalu/La Copa de la Vida – Margarita Lecuona, S.K. Russell/Desmond Child, Rubi Rosa, Luis Escolar

Afternoon Classics - Thursday, March 18, 2010

Once again it is a problem of so much music and so little time, and to think I used to think a two hour program was large! One of my problem's is that if I put the excess from today away for the next time, what I really end up doing is creating a higher stack of music to play "sometime." Putting all that aside here is the playlist for today:

Suite in G "L'Inconnue" (2nd Book) of Michel de La Barre played by Robert Stallman - flute, Edwin Swanborn - harpsichord, Karl Bennion - cello. This piece was some of the first compositions for transverse flute to be published.
Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 11, No. 2 by Ferdinand Ries played by Susan Kagan - piano.
Sonatina in A minor, Op. 45 by Ferdinand Ries. Susan Kagan at the piano
Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 102 by Max Reger performed by Sandor Karoli - violin; Uwe Zipperling - cello; Werner Hoppstock - piano. Max is one of those composers that live in the shadow of others more prominent.
Symphony No. 1 (1940) by John Alden Carpenter, John McLaughlin Williams with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine
Baba Yaga, Op. 56 by Anatol Liadov; Enrique Bátiz and the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra
Piano Concerto in F minor, Op. 114 of Max Reger performed by Steven Mayer - piano; Ernest Bour conducting The Hague Philharmonic
Symphony No 1, (1942) of Bohuslav Martinu, Arthur Fagen and the National Symphony of Ukraine.
Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 by Arnold Schoenberg; Yoel Levi conducting the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Summer Music for Wind Quintet by Samuel Barber, performed by Jeanne Baxtresser - flute; Joseph Robinson - oboe; Stanley Drucker - clarinet; Judith Le Clair - bassoon; Philip Meyers - French horn.

And that does it for this week. Have a wonderful weekend and I will be with you again on next Tuesday!

CROSS-CURRENTS, TransGlobal Thursday Edition w/Mariah, 18March2010

Thanks for listening to my guest-host gig today, the TransGlobal Thursday (wildly ECLECTIC) edition of CrossCurrents! I had a great time taking calls from folks trying to answer the question for the Lance Whalen CD giveaway (his new release, Civil Twilight) . . .

The answer: Dolly Parton's Jolene and Joss Stone's Fell in Love with a Boy are connected by Jack White (of the White Stripes). The White Stripes covered Jolene on their live Under Blackpool Lights AND The White Stripes wrote/recorded Fell in Love with a Girl (which Joss Stone changed to "boy" for her cover on The Soul Sessions). Congrats to Paula for the most correct answer to a tough question!

To follow Mariah's musical discoveries/explorations, notifications of other radio shows, and alerts about terrif global/local videos, find her on FaceBook: Mariah Coe.

A Little Bit of Broadway

Love Never Dies
Act 1

It is ten year after The Phantom of the Opera, and the location is moved to Coney Island, but the people are the same. Opening last Tuesday, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest is the story of “what happens next” after the end of his mega hit Phantom. It has opened to very mixed reviews and it’s anticipated that it will undergo revision before coming to Broadway. I won’t tell you the story, but let you judge for yourself if it “lacks drama”, “is insipid”, “predictable”.

Act One is this week, with Act 2 next week.

Music Andrew Lloyd Webber

There are three composers whose birthdays are being celebrated today. The first is CPE (Carl Phillipe Emmanuel) Bach.

Along with good old CPE we will also celebrate the birthdays of Maurice Ravel and Samuel Barber. So - for the music:

Orchestral Symphony in D minor, Wq 183, No. 2 by CPE Bach performed by Hartmut Haenchen and the CPE Bach Chamber Orchestra
Piano Trio (1914) of Maurice Ravel played passionately by the Eroica Trio
Sonata for violin and piano in G minor by Maurice Ravel (a great way to beat up a violin!) with James Ehnes - violin and Windy Chen - piano

A Little Bit of Broadway

Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines
1975

Well, composer Jack Beeson joined up with librettist Sheldon Harnick, and they turned Clyde Fitch’s 1870’s hit Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines into an operetta. Well, maybe even opera. It sounds very much like the operas written in the last half of the last century. But it stays true to the silly 1870’s plot, where 2 young men make a bet that Captain Jinks can seduce the newest opera singer to come to the American shows. Complications start when he starts falling in love with her and trys to get out of the bet.

Written for the Kansas City Lyric Theater
Colonel Mapleson: Eugene Green
Jinks: Robert Owen Johnson
Willie: Brian Steele
Charlie: Ronald Highley
Aurelia: Carol Wilcox
