A Little Bit of Broadway

She Loves Me
12/22/2013

I am playing one of my most favorite musicals this afternoon. She Loves Me is a perfect jewelbox of a show, where two people who work together and just don’t get along are actually pen pals and falling in love with each other through their letters.

The musical is an adaptation of the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklos Laszlo. It’s been made into three movies:
1940 James Stewart-Margaret Sullavan film The Shop around the Corner
1949 Judy Garland-Van Johnson musical version In the Good Old Summertime.
1998 as the Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan feature You've Got Mail.
Music Jerry Bock
Lyrics Sheldon Harnick
Book Joe Masteroff
Basis Miklos Laszlo's play Parfumerie

We are listening to the original cast recording this afternoon, with Daniel Massey, Jack Cassidy and Barbara Cook.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
12/15/2013

One of the all-time favorites of the Classic Christmas animated specials is Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It was been made into an absolutely delightful music that is pretty faithful to the original. So we’ll spend the afternoon with The Grinch, his dog Max, and the citizens of Whosville.

Music Mel Marvin and Albert Hague
Lyrics Timothy Mason and Dr. Seuss
Book Timothy Mason
Basis How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss

This original cast recording has Patrick Page as The Grinch, John Cullum as Old Max, his dog (who serves as the narrator) and Abigail Shapiro as Cyndy Lou Who.
