The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of July and August
Our mid-summer ritual continues on this week’s Dress Circle (8/2 7:00 p.m.) as we look at some of the shows that opened in New York in July and August. This will be the last time we’ll have to combine the two months as we’ve finally gathered enough cast recordings and enough shows have opened over the hot summer months for us to give each month its rightful due. Our last combined “Shows of” program will include songs from recent hits (now curtailed by the pandemic) like “Moulin Rouge!” and “Hamilton” as well as longtime favorites like “Miss Liberty,” “Me and My Girl,” “La Cage aux Folles,” “Hairspray,” and the revival of “1776.”
We’re showcasing over 105 years of Broadway history this week, and we hope you’ll join us for a safe hour of some very pleasant and fun music this Sunday.
