Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from August 27, 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).

Good morning, everyone! Unless you are listening live. In which case, good evening!

Hi Bronson, Pithy LG, and listeners out there!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm doctorjazz:

Sabbath tradition-Grandma's Pizza and Acid Jazz Hands!
Avatar 🎭 7:30pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, hi! Today I am pissy rather than pithy. I apologize in advance.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm doctorjazz:

Pretty cranky myself-bad back day...
Avatar 🎭 7:34pm Listener Gregory:

Owwww! This show will take your mind off.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm doctorjazz:

Sitting listening, very nice indeed!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:37pm doctorjazz:

You're in Jersey City, cool!
Avatar 🎭 7:42pm Listener Gregory:

Experts agree that the London plague was made worse by Boris Johnson's mismanagement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: I am very proud to be your Sabbath tradition!!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:59pm Listener Gregory:

This song (Mikey) may be too earnest for musical theater.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Musical theatre can be really earnest sometimes! Not my musicals though, they put the acid in acid jazz hands!
Avatar 🎭 8:02pm Listener Gregory:

If you are going to try to address a serious problem or be inspiring, it may be necessary to enter the world of metaphor, rather than one character telling another what a good job they're doing.
We all await your next production, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 8:04pm Listener Gregory:

BB, thank you for your comment on Tom Sawyer vs. Huck Finn. Someone had to say it.
Tom Sawyer is a boy's adventure story. Huckleberry Finn is about the soul of America. Or something.
Avatar 🎭 8:19pm Listener Gregory:

If I am correct, this French song is about a Parisian woman singing passionately to her cheese grater. Non?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Close enough, it's about Joan of Arc singing passionately to her cheese grater
Avatar 🎭 8:28pm Listener Gregory:

Homage au fromage!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn and first nighters I've been at rehearsals the past few weeks - just back from final dress, shows tomorrow and Sunday, so if you missed, me, that's why.

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:42pm doctorjazz:

Very cool, WH, it's thus weekend.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Webhamster Henry:

It is!
  8:45pm Listener Gregory:

Wow, break a leg or some other less important body part!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Webhamster Henry:

It's easy to break a leg in the drippy, wet, muddy mine!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Webhamster Henry:

But enough about me - I recently discovered that Friedrich Hollaender, aka Fredrick Hollander wrote a bunch of cabaret tunes before even Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuss aus Liebe eingestellt and other Dietrich hits.
  8:51pm Listener Gregory:

If I have figured it out right, I really liked that Dallebach Kari song! (The chatlist delay throws me off.)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm doctorjazz:

Heading to the home stretch, thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Webhamster Henry:

Next week: a whole show! also Micki Grant died, a mini tribute maybe?
  8:55pm Listener Gregory:

@Webhamster H, perhaps the greatest song ever written is “Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen” by Mahler. Is that as good?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm doctorjazz:

Love this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

going into slight OT tonight
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Forced to glitter again!
  9:01pm Listener Gregory:

Glitter and be gay, Bronwyn. Thanks for a great show!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm doctorjazz:

Beck says Kristin Chinowitz did this, how she knows it.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm doctorjazz:

Great OT set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i can hit some of the notes in this song and am attempting them in studio C right now (hope no one else can hear)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Glitter and Be Gay is this show's motto
  9:05pm Listener Gregory:

I am sure you can hit them, but don’t shatter the studio windows.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:05pm doctorjazz:

The old Memorex/Ella commercial!
  9:05pm Listener Gregory:

This is such a tremendous performance.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:06pm doctorjazz:

Wotta note!
