The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of February

According to at least one prognosticating groundhog, we’re in for six more weeks of winter, so there’ll be six more weeks to happily stay in and listen to The Classical Network, especially this week’s Dress Circle (2/6 7:00 p.m.) when we’ll be celebrating some of the shows that have opened in February.  We’ve amassed musicals that cover 104 years beginning with a long-forgotten musical from 1913 titled “The Sunshine Girl.”  We’ll follow that with our most recent production, the 2017 revival of Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park with George.”  We’ll also hear from some other well-known shows such as “Wonderful Town,” “A Little Night Music,” “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” (revival), and “Crazy for You.”  

Some of the lesser-known and/or often overlooked musicals include “They’re Playing Our Song,” “Redhead,” “Dear World,” and “Silk Stockings.” 

For good measure, we’re even including a song from a show that opened and closed in Boston before it even had the chance to go to Broadway entitled “Prettybelle” by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill that starred Angela Lansbury. 

Once again, we can guarantee a wonderfully diverse hour of music with something for everyone.
