The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of February

Feb 3, 2019

There are two givens about the beginning of February: the weather will be inconsistent, but The Dress Circle (2/3 7:00 p.m.) will certainly be consistent as we welcome in the month with some of the shows that opened this month.  We’ll look at 100 years of musicals beginning with Jerome Kern’s “Oh, Boy!”, with a book and lyrics by Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse from 1917 through to 2017’s revival of “Sunset Boulevard” by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black, and Christopher Hampton.  

Along the way, we’ll sample music from “The Canterbury Tales,” “Silk Stockings,” “A Little Night Music,” “The Pajama Game” (Harry Connick revival), and “On the Twentieth Century.”  We’ll also take a look at “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Grease,” and the revival of “The Most Happy Fella” among others.  Join us for a celebration of some February musicals in a warm and happy spot where you’re one of the family.
