The Dress Circle: Celebrating the 4th

Since this week’s Dress Circle (7/5 7:00 p.m.) is on the 4th of July weekend, we thought we’d delve into a bit of “calendar art” with our impressions of the holiday.  We sat down and thought about all of the things we felt were part of the celebrations, and then, we turned to the musicals to find songs to represent those ideas.  So, join us for songs from a variety of shows like “Do Re Mi,” “All American,” “Teddy and Alice,” “1776,” “Wish You Were Here,” “The Whitehouse Cantata” (“1600 Pennsylvania Avenue”), and “Miss Liberty.”  

We’ll wave a flag or two, head to a picnic, see some fireworks, and witness the birth of a nation among other things but all through a musical theatre lens.  So, between bites of hot dog and potato salad, tune into The Dress Circle for some more “holiday fare.” 

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.
