What spans 69 years and
ran for over 30,468
performances? Why, it's
the playlist we've
selected to showcase
those musicals that
opened this month.
Our list of seventeen
include the top
boxoffice draws from
PHANTOM OF THE
OPERA to UP IN
CENTRAL PARK.
Along the way, we'll
hear from BEAUTIFUL,
HELLO, DOLLY!, THE
WIZ, and
SHENANDOAH.

We're beginning a two-
part series this week as
we lovingly "Go to the
Dickens!" There have
been many attempts
to stage and musicalize
the works of Charles
Dickens, and we'll
take a look at some
of them. This week,
we'll sample a TV
cast for CRICKET
ON THE HEARTH,
the original cast of
DROOD, a British
version of GREAT
EXPECTATIONS,
a short piece from
the score of the RSC
favorite NICHOLAS
NICKLEBY, and
one of our favorites,
HARD TIMES THE
MUSICAL.


19
Part two of our look at
the musicals based
on the works of
Dickens will include
PICKWICK, the revival
of DROOD, a second
version of GREAT
EXPECTATIONS,
SMIKE!, a TV musical
based on NICHOLAS
NICKLEBY, and
the recent Broadway
version of A TALE
OF TWO CIITES.

Sometimes, a march is a
march, even if it's not
called a march, and
we thought it was about
time we looked at some
of those. Fall in step
for pieces from THE
MUSIC MAN, THE
UNSINKABLE MOLLY
BROWN, GUYS &
DOLLS, WILDCAT,
LOUISIANA
PURCHASE and
more!
