A Little Bit of Broadway


In 1966 Kander and Ebb wrote a musical based on the 1939 short novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood. Set in 1931 Berlin, it explores the relationship between English cabaret singer Sally Bowles and the American writer Cliff as Germany slowly (and sometimes not so slowly) embraces Nazism.

We are listening to the original cast recording today.  Joel Gray won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance of the MC in the 1972 film version to go along with his 1967 Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical Tony. The Broadway show won 7 Tonys.

There is a great interview on this morning's Weekend Edition Sunday with Joel Gray about the show.  Go listen!

There's a musical up for the Oscars -- Les Miserables has 8 Acadamy Award nominations.  Let's listen to some music from the film, starting with the song written especially for the film.

It's genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I only use world wide web for that purpose, and take the newest news.
