Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from August 14, 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).

I actually saw Mabel Mercer live in a club in 1973. She has this advice: in every song, there's a story. Sing that story!
