The Dress Circle: Original Holiday Television Musicals (12/17 7:00 p.m.)

c_tv_musical_montage.jpg

For many of us, television and television specials have played a large part of our various holiday traditions as we grew-up, and we’ll look at a few of those in the fifth part of our series exploring original musicals for television.  We’ve included songs from five original television scores including Angela Lansbury in Jerry Herman’s “Mrs. Santa Claus,” Richard Adler’s version of “The Gift of the Magi” starring Sally Anne Howes, “The Stingiest Man in Town,” another look at Scrooge starring Basil Rathbone, “The Dangerous Christmas of Red Riding Hood” with Liza Minnelli and Cyril Ritchard, and the perennial favorite “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”  It’s all about holiday memories this week on The Dress Circle and at www.DCSRO.com.
