Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from July 23, 2021 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Doug from Maine:

The lobsters are preening and prancing, Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Doug!! For a second I thought maybe you were a new listener named Doug from Maine lol. I hope the lobsters enjoy this obscure Sondheim oddity
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Doug from Maine:

Wonderful on their own, seeing "Sondheim" and "oddity" in the same sentence enhances both.
Avatar 🎭 7:28pm Roberto:

I haven't seen any recent productions of The Producers, but I can't imagine it being anywhere need as good without Gene Wilder's involvement.
Avatar 🎭 7:30pm Roberto:

Followed closely by Dick Shawn and Kenneth Mars.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:33pm diciassette:


*Dr. Seuss books comes to life, and I run screaming from the room*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Roberto: Kenneth Mars is hilarious in that movie! He's also King Triton in the Little Mermaid
Avatar 🎭 7:46pm Roberto:

I had never heard of The Producers before stumbling upon it (the original film) on TV as a teen. I remember thinking, this has got to be the greatest thing ever.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

My parents took me to all kinds of adult musicals! I learned all the songs.
I wouldn't have been interested in Seussical - I didn't like Peanuts or other things that were for kids. I wanted to grow up and be cool!
Avatar 🎭 7:54pm Roberto:

If you had told me in 1988, when I saw the original Hairspray movie, that it would someday be a hit musical, I would have said "WHAAAAAAAAAt?"
Avatar 🎭 7:55pm Roberto:

Let me guess: Vampires in Love was the flop.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:58pm diciassette:

I guess not even that ringer of a song could save it.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:59pm diciassette:

I used to see Wicked posters on Market Street back in the day! I just read that it opened in San Francisco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Roberto: No it's still running actually

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

ok that ethel merman line made me laugh out loud
Avatar 🎭 8:05pm Roberto:

You had me going there, Bronwyn -- for about 50 vertical pixels.
Avatar 🎭 8:10pm Roberto:

BTW, my swag just arrived! WTF is this vinyl doing in there lolz
Avatar 🎭 8:12pm Roberto:

I must have unwittingly won it. Guess I'll keep it with the Pylon record I won about 10 years ago and have never played.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Bronwyn Bishop:

how much time do we think eric idle spent on these lyrics
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:18pm WR:

Sounds like a Tim Curry understudy singing there.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:19pm WR:

ah, my playlist page was was slow to update. it was Tim Curry...
Avatar 🎭 8:22pm Roberto:

All these flops are putting my cat to sleep. He's lying here with his tongue sticking out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

yikes! not sure what happened with that ending
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Roberto I got a book I didn't remember winning and wrote to the station, sure it was intended for somebody else. Nope, it was for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I like to think we just send out random prizes sometimes to keep y'all on your toes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

good night everyone
