A Little Bit of Broadway

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is the story of that practically perfect Nanny, written as a series of books by P.L. Travers. The books were made in to a musical film in 1964 by Disney (with Julie Andrews winning the Oscar for Best Actress, with the score winning for best score and Chim-chim-chere-ee was best song.) 40 years later, it moved to the stage, with a book that follows both the film but even more closely the books it is based on. So it’s a bit darker than the film, especially when the toys put Jane and Michael on trial for their temper and mistreatment of their toys. But of course, everyone comes through their various trials and tribulations and life is much better for all.

· Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - Mary Poppins, Mrs. Corry, Bert, Jane, Michael, Fannie, Annie, and Customers
· Temper, Temper (Playing the Game)^ - Valentine, William, Mr. Punch, the Glamorous Doll, and other Toys

Cello Concerto in C minor, RV 402 by Antonio Vivaldi performed by Ofra Harnoy - cello; Paul Robinson conducting the Toronto Chamber Orchestra
Symphony No. 2 in C minor - "Resurrection" of Gustav Mahler. Featuring Eva Martin, Jessye Norman - sopranos with Lorin Maazel ocnducting the Vienna Symphony Orchesta and Vienna State Opera Choir.

A Little Bit of Broadway

Promises, Promises

One of the wonderful things about Broadway is when someone revives one of the classic Broadway shows. And when they revive a show that’s hasn’t ever had a major revival, well, that’s icing on the cake. This season that icing was Promises, Promises. Based on the Billy Wilder 1960 film The Apartment, this 1968 show ran for almost 1,300 performances, Jerry Orbach won the Tony for best actor in a musical and Marion Mercer won for best featured actress in a musical. This year’s revival was nominated for 4 Tony awards and won one - Katie Finneran won for best featured actress in a musical.

Music Burt Bacharach
Lyrics Hal David
Book Neil Simon
Basis Film The Apartment screenplay by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond

What else was on the boards while Promises, Promises was playing?
-- The first time
-- The Lees of Old Virginia
-- Aquarius
-- Hair
-- Good morning starshine

The Music Man

What better musical to listen to on the 4th of July than that quintessential American musical that begins on July 4th. I’m talking about The Music Man, Meredith Willson’s love letter to his home town of Mason City, Iowa. In fact, many of the characters in this musical are lovingly recreated from people in Willson’s home town.

The story about the con man who finds himself falling with love with town’s prissy librarian is one that has charmed audiences since its 1957 debut, and is frequently performed by both professional and community groups.

We are listening to the original cast recording, on vinyl!
