Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from December 18, 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 7:23pm Webhamster Henry:

Pirate musicals were a thing at one point. I even started one for my playwriting class in '79.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I want to see a pirate musical by Webhamster Henry!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Webhamster Henry:

I got about halfway through the opening number (which I kind of like), but ended up writing a fantasy about an authoritarian society that treats touch typing as a rebellious act. It has only one song in it though.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Webhamster Henry:

Winner of the second place drama prize that year
Avatar 🎭 7:27pm Listener Gregory:

I can’t believe I missed almost all of this set. Arrrggghhh!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Webhamster Henry:

A little Forbidden Broadway in every show!
Avatar 🎭 7:38pm Listener Gregory:

This is clever.
Avatar 🎭 7:39pm Listener Gregory:

Wait, I see where this is going...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Webhamster Henry:

Cyrano in the house!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I laughed out loud at that line about "what doctor could do that kind of operation"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: SO MANY Cyrano musicals...but why?
Avatar 🎭 7:43pm Listener Gregory:

Because it’s flattering to writers.

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm WR:

Hi Bronwyn & Jazz Handers. Fell asleep listening to the drummer stream. Woke up on the line what kind of doctor can we get for that or something to that effect. Did they / he get the girl of his dreams or was i dreaming...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:56pm doctorjazz:

Hi Bronwyn, been lurking since the beginning, hi all!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:56pm diciassette:

I am wondering about the Austrian take on the French Revolution.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:00pm diciassette:

My neighbors are probably wondering what the heck this magnificence is
Avatar 🎭 8:03pm Listener Gregory:

Some of these folks need to work on their diction—I can’t understand a word.
  8:03pm Jeff g. via app:

I’m a little lost.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm diciassette:

mecano rules (I've wind of that)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hello magnificent people diciassette, WR, doctorjazz and Jeff!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Webhamster Henry:

I wish I knew where the rehearsal tape I had of this show went.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Which show?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Webhamster Henry:

In Trousers.
Avatar 🎭 8:22pm Listener Gregory:

What does die Zusammenfugung mean?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Webhamster Henry:

"Fitting together," but I think in this show they just wanted the word "fug" in there.
Avatar 🎭 8:37pm Listener Gregory:

It seems that Ron Moody was Sherlock Holmes in the musical. I always think of him as Fagin in Oliver!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Fagin to Sherlock Holmes is definitely an upgrade
Avatar 🎭 8:45pm Listener Gregory:

This is a real voice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love Gilbert Price. His version of Feelin' Good (from the Broadway recording of The Roar of the Greasepaint) was the first I ever heard and is still my favorite
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm doctorjazz:

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom premiers on Netflix tonight...
Loved the show, Bronwyn, thanks!
