Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from March 4, 2022 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).

Do we HAFTA turn our phones off?
Avatar 🎭 7:02pm Listener Gregory:

Screenplay written by Roger Ebert, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi doctorjazz, Gregory and Tony!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Tony: Yes!

@Gregory: Yes!
Avatar 🎭 7:06pm Listener Gregory:

I am happy to turn my phone's ringer off, and then to turn it back on two days later when I remember what I did.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Webhamster Henry:

BVD also had the Strawberry Alarm Clock!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Theatre fans! My Ex & son saw Company a few days ago and loved it!
Avatar 🎭 7:08pm TonyR:

Then you come crawling back to Broadway. Well, Broadway doesn't go for booze and dope!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm WR:

Cha Cha Hills did "Chalet of the Dolls" trilogy in January. Very chi chi.

Hey hey there
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:09pm WR:

Heels. Though Cha Cha Hills is a fantasy place in the world of Cha Cha Heels.
Avatar 🎭 7:10pm Listener Gregory:

Genius idea: Sexploitation, The Musical! (c)
Avatar 🎭 7:11pm Listener Gregory:

BB, there certainly WERE good books published in the 70s, but they were not the huge bestsellers. You know, boring things by Thomas Pynchon, Anne Tyler, Philip Roth, Grace Paley, etc.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Webhamster Henry:

AJH has already played tuned from The First Nudie Musical!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Webhamster Henry:

Nice to hear the melody of these Munchkin bits!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm doctorjazz:

As LG said at 7:06, but only after I've missed multiple important calls, and can't figure out why (do I need a new phone?)
  7:14pm Listener Gregory:

I may ask to have this played at my funeral.
Avatar 🎭 7:21pm Listener Gregory:

The Valley of the Dolls lies between the Cha Cha Hills.
Avatar 🎭 7:29pm Listener Gregory:

"Your pedal extremities are colossal
To me you look like a fossil."
Is one of the best and most nonsensical lines in a popular song. IMHO
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm WR:

That Munchkinland sequence demo recording is wonderful!!!
  7:29pm kounsokiri:

Nice one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: Fats Waller didn't write that song, but he did write that line, which is the best part
  7:35pm Listener Gregory:

Interesting about that ad lib, BB. I’m not surprised that Waller made it up. It is a typical form of his wit, mixing high language with “low” art.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Webhamster Henry:

Cinta is pronounced "Chinta" #pedanticgamelanplayer
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Webhamster Henry:

Forbidden B'Way time!
Avatar 🎭 7:42pm Listener Gregory:

I am a big Monty Python fan but had no desire to see Spamalot. Friends from out of town insisted on seeing it, so I reluctantly went along and thought it was fantastic.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:43pm doctorjazz:

I loved Spamalot! Had a good hora going here!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Webhamster Henry:

The Rhinebeck Theatre did Camelot and Spamalot in the same season.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm solo mon:

“And there are juice freaks and there are pill freaks, and everyone’s a freak. What you need now is some grass or a downer.” Are they making Beyond the Valley of the Dolls into a Broadway musical finally???
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm doctorjazz:

Quite a voice!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

making my entrance! helLO, Broadway Bronwyn and all you babies!
Avatar 🎭 7:52pm Listener Gregory:

I was part of the 110 In the Shade Ensemble, until they found out I weighed a lot more than that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Their next challenge is to do them simultaneously
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi solo mon and Baba Bee!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:52pm Listener Gregory:

I mean, shade is flattering, but it can only do so much.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Webhamster Henry:

110 needs a California revival.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Baba Bee: being called Broadway Bronwyn made me smile like this :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

:D!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm solo mon:

Baba Beeeeeeeee
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:00pm doctorjazz:

My wife reminded me about Northern Exposure (loved that show, he starred!
Avatar 🎭 8:03pm Roberto:

And of course, he delivers the best vocal performance of 1776!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I remember watching the film of 1776 for the first time, seeing his name in the credits and being like "I bet he sings Molasses to Rum, can't wait to see John Cullum doing Molasses to Rum" and then realizing I was a Hopeless Theater Nerd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

that said, Clifford David also did a great job on the cast album
Avatar 🎭 8:06pm Roberto:

Yes, I should have specified best vocal performance of the film soundtrack.
Avatar 🎭 8:12pm Roberto:

I'm still trying to determine if I saw Pippin on Broadway during its original run. The songs feel very familiar and it seems like the sort of thing my parents would have taken me to see around that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i luv me some pippin
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:14pm doctorjazz:

Making my wife very happy (she's the theater nerd, along with my daughter, I'm an also-ran. She's calling out the Show, Singer, etc, the way I usually do with movie soundtracks).
  8:16pm Listener Gregory:

I think I know Pippin, but I don’t. This always surprises me.
Avatar 🎭 8:16pm Roberto:

Wow, you're a young'n.
Avatar 🎭 8:17pm Roberto:

Oh my yes. Odd/even license plate gas days in California.
  8:18pm Listener Gregory:

Believe me, Ms Bishop, the 70s is a lot better in nostalgic hindsight than it was in real time. A LOT better!

The background music to your announcement (Brecht) is really good, btw.
Avatar 🎭 8:20pm Listener Gregory:

There should have been a question mark after (Brecht?).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm listening to CBS Radio Mystery Theatre shows to put me to sleep, and they all have news and commercials and PSA on it from 1974-1982 and it's an immersive time warp!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Webhamster Henry:

@Listerner Gregory Yes, Brecht / Weill from Happy End: Surabaya Johnny.
  8:24pm Listener Gregory:

The singer seems so ANGRY at Amsterdam.
  8:25pm Listener Gregory:

BB, may I asked who performed it? Great arrangement. (It isn’t on the app listing.)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm WR:

I have the Shuman / OC album. Didn't fully appreciate it back in the day. Need to revisit.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Webhamster Henry:

"Jacques Brel is Alive and Well.." was an unexpected hit. It was getting pans .. but Clive Barnes' rave set it on fire and it ran for years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

but who would pan a musical I love so much I rewrote it :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

for real, I love JBIAAWALIP so much that when I was 21 I wrote a book for it to go with the songs (do not try this at home, unless you are 21 and therefore invincible)
Avatar 🎭 8:32pm Roberto:

When you were 21 -- so, basically last week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: That was Shuman himself (I always list the performer as the artist, never the writer- they get their own little box lol)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Roberto: Believe it or not I had already been involved at FMU for three years at that point haha
  8:33pm Listener Gregory:

When you think about it, Jacques Brel is a crazy idea for an American musical. Totally unknown songwriter who had written solely in French… madness to even try it.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:33pm doctorjazz:

I saw Newsies when it was previewing at the Papermill Theater before it got to the big city. We enjoyed it!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm doctorjazz:

(We had a subscription to The Paper Mill when my mother in law was still alive, went with my kids, brother in law, wife, Mother in law. It was a nice time).
  8:40pm Jeff g. via app:

Newsies was a staple at my kids’ elementary school. Hi!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Webhamster Henry:

Dig up this book from your library or used bookstore: www.goodreads.com...
for the raucous story of the Jacques Brel production.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm doctorjazz:

Bronwyn, you're from my daughter's Ithaca class, need I say more (about age)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Bronwyn Bishop:

You were at my college graduation!!! (although neither of us knew it lol)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Jeff G, looking forward to our upcoming double act!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Wow I had no idea that existed- wish I had read it when I was doing my Brel show!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Webhamster Henry:

@BB it's right there next to Not Since Carrie and my other Acid Jazz Books
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Actually @doctorjazz I wonder if your daughter remembers my show (Last Call) or the existence of the Macabre Theatre Ensemble in general (that was the crazy little theatre group that produced it)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Webhamster Henry:

That hour went fast! See ya in the Marathon!
  8:56pm Listener Gregory:

All ashore who’s going ashore! Thanks for a great show, Bronwyn. Good luck with Jeff G! He’s a real tough customer.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm WR:

Thank you! M Bronwyn B! Excellent episode!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

These are high-level theater lyrics! "Onassis and all the classes in between!" Go Sting Go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU everyone!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Webhamster Henry:

Here's Dick Van Dyke dancing to send you off: www.openculture.com...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm doctorjazz:

Bronwyn, I don't know, she's coming out tomorrow (catch some music and my brother in law), I'll ask her.
Great show, thanks so much!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Brava, Broadway Bronwyn! Thanks everyone, see ya in Cha Cha Heels…
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:02pm doctorjazz:

(actually, Rebecca was in a production of Little Shop of Horrors in that Macabre Theatre Company. Not sure if you'll get this, board just closed before I finished)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I remember when they did that- I wasn't involved because I was doing the London study abroad program at the time. But I was a member for all four years at Ithaca
