These are the songs I picked between 26 September and 2 October 2014. I’ll talk about them next time.
Miss Marmelstein – Barbra Streisand … In the booklet, Streisand talks about doing the number seated on a desk chair and sliding around the stage, which naturally I tried to recreate at my new job whenever nobody was watching.
A Quiet Thing / There Won’t Be Trumpets – Barbra Streisand
The Skin Of Our Teeth – Brent Barrett … As we waited for Bruce, John Kander came in the house with Eric Schaeffer. I was going to ask Kander to autograph the poster I had bought, but he and Schafer were having what it seems a serious conversation.
Tom, Dick Or Harry – Ann Miller, Tommy Rall, Bobby Van, Bob Fosse
Dressing Them Up – Brent Carver … Having the character sing this song elevates Molina from a sad middle aged lonely gay man with an active imagination to a man who can be passionate and committed to a cause, or someone he loves.
The Day After That – Brian Mitchell
Manhattan – Ella Fitzgerald
