The Dress Circle: Some of Our Favorite Overtures


We decided to play some of our favorite overtures on this week’s Dress Circle (5/10 7:00 p.m.), but we didn’t stop with just overtures because some of our favorites weren’t really overtures as we have an entr’acte and two scene setting songs from musicals like “Of Thee I Sing,” “The Boy Friend,” “Blondel,” “See Saw,” “Follies,” and “Rags.”  Why some of these are our favorites varies greatly from a favorite theatrical experience to a marathon concert version of a show that lasted for nearly eight hours.  

We just wanted to offer our listeners a chance to hear some of the works that are special to us for a variety of reasons.
