Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from May 8, 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 7:22pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn! Latecomers will be seated during the second set.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Webhamster Henry:

I used to have a board bootleg of In Trousers. Very Chip Zien-y!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi everyone!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: someday i will make a martini during my show, i want to experience this for myself
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I want to see an in trousers bootleg!! It is the unsung one of the trilogy
Avatar 7:29pm Parq:

"Of Thee I Sing" was done for TV in the early 70s, with Carroll O'Connor and Cloris Leachman in the leads.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Webhamster Henry:

@BB sadly I haven't seen that cassette for a very long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Parq: i must see this
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Webhamster Henry:

Eubie resurfaced after the Ragtime Craze that followed after the move The Sting and was very active thereafter into his 90s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I like that! Eubie was way cool!! he was even on SNL once
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Webhamster Henry:

How nice that you don't have to duck language on the Drummer Stream!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love that!! It would be hard to have a show tunes show without cursing since there is a surprising amount of cursing in show tunes
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Cf "Mother In Law" from "Welcome To The Club"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I've somehow never heard of Welcome to the Club, I'll have to check that out
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Webhamster Henry:

It was a famous flop! But did manage a Original Cast Album. This song, BTW, is horrid.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

The original play Seventeen was one of Ruth Gordon's first roles - she played Lola Pratt, "the baby talk lady".
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Webhamster Henry:

I used to have the French version of Gigi, with Maurice singing charmingly as usual. The old Vichy goat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: which one was horrid?? applause?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm WR:

Hello peoples. Have been listening but on work calls so in the background. Volume now up and will catch the last act.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Webhamster Henry:

Welcome to the Club... Applause ran for years , gave Lauren Bacall something to do,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi WR!! I hope the show tunes went well with the work calls
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: oh!! i thought maybe applause since a lot of people don't like it but i play everything regardless of quality/popularity lol
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Webhamster Henry:

Applause wasn't particularly needed, but then again there was some show about singin' dancing pussycats that clogged up the Winter Garden for decades.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I saw the singing dancing pussycats at the Winter Garden for my 5th birthday I'll have you know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I used to watch the CATS video recording every single day as a kindergartener and even went as Grizabella for Halloween!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Well I saw A Private Function, the movie Betty Blue Eyes is based on, and I guessed that was it from the album cover! Because pig.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm WR:

Quick question, the Shuffle Along with Eubie Blake, the 2016 date was the release date? When were the recordings made?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Webhamster Henry:

More Forbidden Broadway!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm WR:

We took our kids to see cats twice. Once when they were 2nd grade & kindergarten. Then again when they were 3rd & 5th grade.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Webhamster Henry:

I guess Garfield is a response to CATS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: Most of the Sissle & Blake recordings were made in 1950
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

we're going into OT folks!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm WR:

Wasn't there a peanuts / Snoopy musical?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

There are a couple- you're a good man charlie brown is amazing, Snoopy(!!!) sucks
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:02pm WR:

I would think Garfield is more related to the other comic strip adaptations more than Cats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

There are a lot of comic strip musicals believe it or not. Like Annie and Doonesbury (really)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey! Even Comic Book Musicals, cough cough Spiderman cough cough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i highly recommend the book about the making of the spiderman musical, by glen berger. craaaaaaazy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thrills! spills! too many spills
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Webhamster Henry:

OK! That's Show Biz!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Webhamster Henry:
