The Dress Circle: Shows of July and August
We’ll be looking at July and August together for our show openings on this week’s Dress Circle (7/29 7:00 p.m.) since Broadway openings slow during the summer months with the exception of this year where there will be no fewer than four new musicals opening. However, since they haven’t opened yet, we don’t have any music from them and won’t be mentioning them. The “summer shows” we will be mentioning include the 1997 revival of “1776,” the riotous revue “Two on the Aisle,” one of Langston Hughes’ Broadway musicals “Simply Heavenly,” and the high-energy “Hairspray.”
We’ll also be playing songs from “A Chorus Line,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “This Is the Army,” “La Cage Aux Folles” and several more. Join us again in our “happy place” in the world of musical theatre where “even the orchestra is beautiful” (Sorry, you’ll have to wait for October, November, March, or April for “Cabaret.”) It’s all about good music and good friends every Sunday at 7:00.
