The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of February
The Dress Circle begins the month of February (2/4 7:00 p.m.) with its monthly feature to showcase some of the shows that have opened this month. The menu of productions spans some 72 years with the earliest being Irving Berlin’s long forgotten musical “Face the Music” from 1932. Along the way, we’ll also be looking at a musical was based on some of the stories of Chaucer from “The Canterbury Tales” starring Hermione Baddeley.
The original production of Stephen Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music” also opened this month, as did “On the Twentieth Century” with music and lyrics by Cy Coleman, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green. We’ll also be taking a look at the 1996 reworking of “Girl Crazy” by the Gershwins that was entitled “Crazy for You” along with several others.
