The Land Where the Good Songs Go
One of the most important of all composers for the Broadway stage is Jerome Kern. Kern wrote over 700 songs used in over 100 shows. Almost everyone knows a Jerome Kern song. Kern’s music built upon the older traditions but brought them up-to-date, and was among the first to use the music for move the plot along or to provide character development.
The 2012 revue The Land Where Good Songs Go actually has a really good story (not always the case in musical revues or jukebox musicals). And oh the songs! From 25 different shows and 11 different lyricists, this show is just a delight.
