The Dress Circle: Songs for St. Patrick's Day

It’s another “calendar art” program on this week’s Dress Circle (3/17 7:00 p.m.) as we present songs from the musicals for St. Patrick’s Day. 

We’ve got songs from the early 20th century like “Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?”, an American adaptation of an early British music hall song that was heard on Broadway in “The Jolly Bachelors.” Other early songs include George M. Cohan’s “Harrigan” and Victor Herbert’s “The Irish Have a Great Day Tonight” and the haunting “Thine Alone.” The final two coming from an operetta titled “Eileen.” 

Of course, we’ll have songs from “Finian’s Rainbow” sung by Og, the only musical Leprechaun that we know of. Our other “Irish” musicals include “Juno,” and adaptation of Sean O’Casey’s “Juno and the Paycock” and “Donnybrook,” the adaptation of Maurice Walsh’s’ “The Quiet Man.” 

There are many more from a variety of shows, but in order to find out what they are, you’ll just have to grab your green bagels and beer and have a sit with us this Sunday night. Even if you’re not Irish, we guarantee you’ll like the songs!
