Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 1, 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).

Bronwyn, you said you live on Second Ave? As I was eating my channa masala I wondered to myself if that whole block of Indian restaurants was still on First Ave and Sixth Street, unbroken?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:46pm WR:

That Bert Williams was giving good advice. Franco, I hope you were paying attention.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Franco Twinkie:

I just got home WR. I've been stuffing garlic naan in my face.
