Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from February 28, 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).

You know, this reminds me that Loony Tunes will forever be associated with Barber of Seville in my head. Much like Madam Butterfly will be associated with the simpsons forever in my head. Hello everyone!

Hi Cmurtha!! I <3 Looney Tunes for introducing so many people to opera

One studio for infected, one for those who think they are not yet infected.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Cmurtha:

Today is the second time I've heard of studio C, after thinking it was just A, and B (which I only knew about because of construction stuff last year).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Cmurtha:

this song is so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm WR:

Seems I recall the " take good care of yourself you belong to me" tune was in a cartoon as well, maybe Betty Boop or maybe just in my head...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Cmurtha:

Could be. Though I think it may be just like how "I wanna be bad" was (originally?) song by the woman who Betty Boop was modeled off of Helen Kane. But, I don't know.
  7:33pm Listener TerryT:

Did you know that Gretchen Cryer is Jon Cryer's Mom?
  7:35pm Listener Terry:

(D'oh! No T at the end of my handle)

Hi First Nighters!

I am going to keep pretending they wrote only a single musical/play about all those items, rather than them having written a musical about each of those things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Webhamster Henry:

Jon is an excellent Lex Luthor on SUPERGIRL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Henry!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Cmurtha: A musical where Abraham Lincoln, Gertrude Stein, Aristophanes and Saint Joan team up to save Christmas from Winnie the Pooh, and along the way Abe/Aristophanes and Gertrude/Joan fall in love and get into gay relationships
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Cmurtha:

You know, that's oddly close to what I imagined. Only the Villain was Gertrude, because there's something comic about imaging her and Lincoln brawling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love it! Great minds!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Cmurtha:

I feel like, if you didn't lose her at "What do I gotta do to be with you" following it up with LOLOLOLOL did not help the cause. Oh man, this boy be simping. Fun song though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Cmurtha:

Damn, that one was a hell of a ride.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Webhamster Henry:

All those 92nd St Y "An Evening With" shows are worth coming back to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm WR:

Someone played a period recording of Hey Big Spender this week. Listening to this I thought it was Male vocalist, and looked and bing bing bing it is lyricist Fields herself. My head is spinning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love that they do a "Lyrics and Lyricists" series! Lyricists never get the spotlight and I appreciate the Y for trying to correct that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Webhamster Henry:

I actually have Miss Gulch! It's funnier than I thought it'd be!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: I thought it was a man too at first and thought "who is this dude stealing Dorothy's spotlight." (sorry Dorothy)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm WR:

And more spinning realizing that I am referring to the 60s as "period"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Cmurtha:

thanks for the show!

Ahoy and thank you! I've been listening in bed a la Scraps (Hmmm where has Scraps been?)

Eh, you're still streaming? Lovely.
