The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of May

a_may_2019_montage.jpg

Welcome to May!  We don’t have flowers for you, but on this week’s Dress Circle (5/5 7:00 p.m.) we do have some of the May openings for you.  From the earliest shows, 1921’s “Shuffle Along” and a song by Eubie Blake and Nobel Sissle and 1928’s “Blackbirds of 1928” which featured songs by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields, we’ll look at the long-running Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones favorite, “The Fantasticks,” the delightful masterpiece by Frank Loesser, “The Most Happy Fella,” the backstage love letter to Broadway by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, “Me and Juliet,” as well as two back-to-back hits by the team of Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, “The Pajama Game” and “Damn Yankees.”  

We’ve also planned songs from other favorite shows like “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Louisiana Purchase,” “New Girl in Town,” “Once Upon a Mattress,” and the wonderfully bizarre, “Flahooley.” 

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
