The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of March
The weather may be unpredictable, but this week’s Dress Circle (3/4 7:00 p.m.) certainly isn’t. Since it’s the beginning of the month, we’ll once again look at our monthly feature showcasing the musicals that opened on and off-Broadway during March. We’re featuring Joel Grey and Anne Reinking in the 1975 musical about Joan of Arc and Charlemagne entitled “Goodtime Charley” and the fabled 1954 off-Broadway revival of Weill and Brecht’s “The Threepenny Opera” featuring Bea Arthur, and it’s very nice to hear her in her prime.
Also scheduled are selections from Kander and Ebb’s musical “whodunit” “Curtains,” the 2015 revival of “On the Twentieth Century” with Kristen Chenoweth and Peter Gallagher, the failed musical version of “Rocky” by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and the “earworm” opening number of the irreverent and wonderful “Book of Mormon” that is approaching its 3000th performance along with several others. Join us in our happy musical “safe place” each Sunday evening.
