Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from January 10, 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).

Eh? You've started without us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I like to submit the first track info before the show starts so I can get a head start on the track info for the next track. Track info takes a while to put in!

Greetings, gypsies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Greetings Henry!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:06pm WR:

Of course that makes sense, I was just trying to be clever, emphasis on try.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:07pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey it's a different version of Na Skle Malowane than the one I know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:08pm Webhamster Henry:

Ah - Slovak. I see that why it wasn't "gory, chmuri i dolini".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:14pm doctorjazz:

Hi folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: no worries :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Yes it's the Slovak stage musical adapated from the Polish record! Thanks for introducing this to me last week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hi doctorjazz :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:17pm diciassette:

Hi fellers! Happy belated David Bowie day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:19pm Webhamster Henry:

I think they staged the original Polish concept album too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:21pm diciassette:

After the show I promise to put on David Bowie in Bertolt Brecht's BAAL
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I will have to check that version out for sure!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 7:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: I had no idea Bowie did a Baal album! Very excited to check that out!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 7:48pm Webhamster Henry:

Bowie's Baal was produced for the BBC. Brecht had his own melodies for it, but they were not used in this TV production.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

Disneyland can be used with new lyrics in a musical based on THE FLORIDA PROJECT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:24pm diciassette:

I'm glad you remembered Elvis too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:26pm diciassette:

Okay so it was an Elvis Costello impersonator..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:26pm diciassette:

(still counts)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:28pm doctorjazz:

Like this Wedding Singer track a lot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:29pm diciassette:

I am kind of floored that was ADA Barba singing Green Green Dress
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 8:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: That would be an incredible musical!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 8:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: who sounded like Elvis Costello?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:38pm diciassette:

Raul Esparza (I could have sworn!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 8:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Now when I listen to him singing Being Alive in the 2006 Company revival I will imagine it's Elvis Costello playing Bobby (which would be amazing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:54pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Bronwyn, enjoyed the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 8:57pm Webhamster Henry:

Steve was a little indisposed by a fall this week and couldn't make it to London to help open the Sondheim theatre in the West End.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thanks doctorjazz :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I read a headline about him being "incapacitated" and was so worried but luckily it seems like a minor thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 9:09pm Webhamster Henry:

Yes, he had a funny response to the situation!
