MARCH
3
March is beginning as it is
wont to do with its winds
and unsettled weather as
are we with songs from
a selection of shows that
opened in New York this
month. Seventy plus years
is the span this month from
the most recent opening
of FROZEN back to
BRIGADOON. Along
the way we'll hear from
SEESAW, NEWSIES,
SPAMALOT, COME
FROM AWAY, THE
GOLDEN APPLE, and
almost a dozen more.

Something happened as we
listened to a new arrival a
few weeks back: we came
all over nostalgic-like.
To that end, we're heading
down a musical memory
lane on this week's
program. Tune in to find
out how those pictured
to the left played roles
in our formative years
and beyond. (One of us
still loves the Winter
Warlock!)

If you've listened to the
DRESS CIRCLE for a
while, you've no doubt
heard us mention and use
selections from CDs that
were produced by Ben
Bagley, so we thought it
was about time to take
a look at some of these
recordings which ofter
often forgotten material
by some very well-known
composers and lyricists.

24
We often joke with each
other about the variable
results achieved when a
composer or lyricist tries
to perform his or her own
music. We've dubbed it:
"When they eat their own."
However, by listening to
demo discs and other
recordings, we often get
to hear songs in a totally
different way before they
made it into shows, and
we like that very much.
Some of the creators we
have in the line-up for
this week include:
Stephen Sondheim, Cy
Coleman, Betty Comden
and Adolph Green,
Johnny Mercer, Harold
Rome, Frank Loesser,
Jerry Bock and Sheldon
Harnick, and Hoagy
Carmichael. Tune in
to see who else we've
found.

Our last program of March
is based on a theme that's
near and dear to our hearts:
FOOD. No, we haven't
found any singing produce,
but we've been looking at
songs about food which
is better because they're
pleasant and have far
fewer calories! Our
musical menu isn't quite
set, so you can be as
surprised as we will be!
