DECEMBER

Put your feet up, and take
a break with us this week
for a survey of some of
the shows that opened on
Broadway in the month
of December. We've
limited our pallet to those
shows opening on or
before 1950 and have
included OUT OF THIS
WORLD, GENTLEMEN
PREFER BLONDES,
PAL JOEY, LADY BE
GOOD!, and CARMEN
JONES among others.

Anthems in musicals are
songs that usually come
when a character faces
a personal crisis of some
sort, and this week we'll
look at some anthems
from shows like RAGTIME,
STEEL PIER, CHESS,
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES,
THE COLOR PURPLE,
and COMPANY.

We'll begin two weeks of
programs for Christmas
this week with a look at
some Christmas musicals
written specifically for TV.
We've limited it to five,
and they are, THE GIFT
OF THE MAGI, THE
STINGIEST MAN IN
TOWN, MRS. SANTA
CLAUS, RUDOLPH
THE RED NOSED
REINDEER, and
THE DANGEROUS
CHRISTMAS OF
RED RIDING HOOD.

Grab your favorite libation
and join us for Christmas
Eve and some nostalgic
music from stage and
screen. Who knows who
might show up, but we can
guarantee you some holiday
delights!

We're hoping for a better
2018, and we'll be turning
to the musicals for some
words of wisdom that
might just help us get
there. Those musicals
include MAME, CALL
ME MADAM, SUNSET
BOULEVARD, MR.
CINDERS, and
FADE OUT, FADE IN.
