A Little Bit of Broadway

The Woman in White

A story of love, betrayal and greed - Walter Hartright’s life is changed forever after a chance encounter with a mysterious woman, dressed in white, desperate to reveal her chilling secret. When he takes up his position as drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie and her half sister, Marion, he sees in Laura’s face an eerie reflection of the forlorn creature he met previously. The evil Sir Pervival Glyde is plotting to take their wealth, but the mysterious, ghost-like woman in white, Anne Catherick, tries to help them by revealing a horrible secret.

The source of the musical is widely regarded as the first of the genre of "sensation novels", which led to the detective novels of today.

Music Andrew Lloyd Webber

Lyrics David Zippel

A Little Bit of Broadway


Before they were the Fab Four, there were five – John George, Paul, Stu and Pete. Backbeat tells the story of the Beatles time in Hamburg, learning how to be a band. So if you listen to this musical, don’t expect to hear a whole lot of early Beatles hits, except those thrown in at the end to provide a sop to those who really need it. This is when the Beatles were a basically a cover band, playing country, rock and roll and blues from America. It is also the story of how those five James Den wannabes became the moptop Fab Four. It hasn’t made it yet to Broadway (not that can tell, at least) and the reviews in LA were pretty mixed. Both the performers and the story has been panned. But that doesn’t mean the music’s not good.

We'll finish with film music from the actual Fab Four. Here's John, Paul, George and Ringo with music from the film HELP!

How to Succeed in Business Without Relly Trying

This week on Fresh Air Terry Gross talked with Daniel Radcliffe about his post Potter career. One of the things he did was head to Broadway to sing the leading role in the 2011 revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Listen to Harry Potter sing! And go to the NPR website to hear the interview.

A Little Bit of Broadway

Hands on a Hardbody

Sometimes you know why a show a hit or a flop. Maybe the stars just aren't aligned for success. It may be that a show is better suited for regional theater than the Broadway stage. That may be particularly true of "small town" or those country tinged shows that may not appeal to a more urban audience.

That's my take on what happened with Hands of a Hardbody, a musical based on the 1997 documentary documenting an endurance competition that took place in Longview, Texas. The yearly competition pits contestants against each other to see who can keep their hand on a pickup truck for the longest amount of time. Whoever endures the longest without leaning on the truck or squatting wins the truck. During the musical we learn the backstories of the 10 contestants and the reasons why they really, really, REALLY want that truck.
