Favoriting Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from June 4, 2021 Favoriting

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Favoriting

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).

You can do a whole show with cringy stereotyped "Chinese" music tropes.

Just discovered that the song that I always assumed was a Muppet song, "Just One Person," is actually a Snoopy the Musical song.

this is making me wish that Nina Simone and John Jacob Niles had a duet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi everyone!! @Andrew: that would have been BEAUTIFUL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: my fav about that is that they use the "Chinese" sound for a song set in the South Pacific, like wtf orchestrator

I would have bet a quarter that "Heat Wave" was written by Cole Porter. I guess that's why I'm broke!

It was written by that other really clever guy

"A New Brain" does not sound like a promising musical title to me. Images of the transplant operating room are coming to mind. Ugh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

It's about the time William Finn had brain surgery so you're pretty much right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm

A New Brain is actually really good - kind of autobiographical.

Ah, like the film Sliding Doors.

Yes, they forgot the Else. Thanks Bronwyn!

Apparently there was a playbill insert in the If/Then playbill that said something like "yes we know this is similar to Sliding Doors"
