Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from November 6, 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).

In the meantime, let's turn up the music and say: o oi lei philly!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I'm from philly lol I love that philly is about to save the universe
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:18pm diciassette:

most people have no idea how important philly is but not *I*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

The original home of American independence is about to save the day again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

It's hot as hell in Philadelphia (with the fire of justice)
Avatar 8:26pm NoBucks:

This show is a balm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Fun fact: In this show we have heard from both major actors to play Edward Rutledge in 1776 (the nasty Southerner who sings the scary slavery song). Clifford David played him in the original Broadway cast and John Cullum played him in the movie. Strangely, Clifford David is a tenor and John Cullum is a baritone!
Avatar 8:29pm NoBucks:

I can't think of that song sung by a tenor. Interesting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Here's the original: www.youtube.com...

What's funny is that baritones love to claim it as one of the great baritone songs, but the actual notes are tenor notes, they just think of it that way because Cullum is a baritone (I think they cast him because he was the only Broadway star with an *actual* patrician Southern accent)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm doctorjazz:

Made it for the home stretch, have to catch the rear in the archives! Great playlist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey doctorjazz :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

and now here's my third favorite lyricist Yip Harbug KILLING IT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

this song was a question on my 11th grade AP US History test, that's how much it impacted society (go YIP! and the composer I guess)
Avatar 8:53pm NoBucks:

Did you get the answer right? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I'm sure I did, considering I was the only kid in my class to get a 5 out of 5 on that dang test (the others all got 3s and 2s)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

And then my teacher made me go in front of the incoming AP class at the beginning of the next year and share my words of wisdom which boiled down to "uh study and read the book"
Avatar 8:57pm NoBucks:

LOL. Words of wisdom.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm diciassette:

I once had a social psychology class, and every week there was a quiz on the current chapter. So I read the chapter right before class, it worked splendidly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Fun fact that I recently found out: this is the guy who played the racist cop in The People vs. OJ. Bet you didn't know HE could sing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love how someone like Steven Pasquale (or Christian Borle, or Norbert Leo Butz, or whoever) can be a HUGE Broadway star and then we cheer for them when they get the tiniest roles on TV
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Jud definitely voted for Trump. Sadly Curly, Laurey & Aunt Eller's Biden votes weren't enough for Oklahoma to turn blue
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

(Ado Annie voted for Kanye because he's the cute one)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Great show tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank you Lizzie!!
Avatar 9:09pm NoBucks:

Terrific show - really enjoyed it.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm diciassette:

Very splendid show, indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank you everyone!!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I see you've reached that goal! 🥅 Yay!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 11:02pm WR:

It's been a long day. Making spaghetti and archive listening. Glad to see your program reached the donation goal. Deserves more, but I expect that will grow.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 12:14am WR:

Wonderful concept program. Will listen again when not so tired so I can hold it all in my brain at once.

Alfred Drake had many significant roles. He is yet an enigma to me.

Note that overalls are my default daily wear even when not going to a carnival amusement fair.
