The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of April

a_april_shows_final_0.jpg

We’re covering over ninety years of theatre history on this week’s Dress Circle (4/5 7:00 p.m.) as we showcase songs from some of the shows that opened in New York in April.    Normally, “April showers bring May flowers,” but this year has been pretty strange, and it seems, to those of us who suffer from allergies, that every plant in the natural world is tossing its pollen happily into the air far too early.  Our earliest show is “Hit the Deck,” and our latest show is the current Broadway hit “Hadestown.”  

Along the way, we’ll hear from “Carousel,” “Hair,” “Bombay Dreams,” “Half a Sixpence,” “I Love My Wife,” “Annie,” and “Big River.”  We might all be stuck inside during our social quarentine, but we can still travel to New York and enjoy some wonderful musicals together.  Stay safe, and be happy.   

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.
