NOVEMBER

Judging from the TV adverts,
we're well into the holiday
season, but first, we'll take
a break and look at some of
the shows that opened on
Broaday in November. It's
another varied lot that
includes many wonderful
songs from shows like
GRAND HOTEL, YOUNG
FRANKENSTEIN, BILLY
ELLIOTT, BEAUTY AND
THE BEAST, INTO THE
WOODS, THE LION
KING, SEUSSICAL,
and many more.

This week, it's all about
Broadway box office
champions; shows that ran,
or are running, for more
than 3,000 performances!
Our baker's dozen includes
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF,
GREASE, PHANTOM OF
THE OPERA, MISS
SAIGON, WICKED, RENT,
and A CHORUS LINE.
Join us this week to
see what the rest of
the menu will be!

Just in time for Thanksgiving,
we're going to be looking
at some Broadway turkeys!
These shows, among many
others, ran for fewer than
ten performances. This
doesn't mean that a show
was bad because there
are many factors that can
kill a good show. These
shows just didn't make it
for one reason or other,
but they still gave us
some great songs.
Some of those shows
are THE YEARLING,
RAGS, THE MOONEY
SHAPIRO SONGBOOK,
OH, BROTHER!, LA
STRADA and BRING
BACK BIRDIE - That's
13 songs from 10
ill-fated musicals!

What does everyone love
about Thanksgiving?
Right! Leftovers, and we'll
be sampling some
leftover turkeys on this
week's program. This
time, we'll be looking at
an even dozen as the
cut-off, and you'll just
have to tune in to see
who didn't make the
grade. What we can
tell you is that, once
again, you're in for
some excellent
songs!
