Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from April 17, 2020 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 7:07pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Webhamster Henry:

From my Imaginary Sound Events of 2002:
Macskák / Katze (Privat Aufnahme - 1985)
In 1985, near the end of the cold war, the casts of the Viennese and Hungarian translations of CATS met at the train stop Nickelsdorf - Hegyeshalom and sang various songs together simultaneously. This privately reissued remembrance is best at the beginning, with the two casts shouting at each other in English, things like "I love Andrew Lloyd Webber!"
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:10pm doctorjazz:

They're streaming Phantom, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Is this real? Or imaginary? Either way I love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

"I know some of these words" - Spanish speakers
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Webhamster Henry:

I have a kid's music record in Catalan - it's interesting to listen to if you know Spanish.

@Henry: Dave in the slowed-down chipmunks songs is kinda like Chipmunk Fagin
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:31pm diciassette:

When I get around to it I'm going to put Steely Dan on at 45rpm so I can hear Chipmunk Fagen

How do know about and did you find the recording of Evangeline the Musical? Did it ever get performed out side of Louisiana?
  11:32pm Bronwyn:

I have a lot of resources for finding obscure musicals- for that one I was just scanning Wikipedia’s lists of musicals for ones I hadn’t heard of
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 11:55pm WR:

Thank you for yet another great show, as ever entertaining fun and I learned too.
