The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of October

Although it may seem that we’ve been going through “trick or treat” for some time now, we are heading into October, the month of “pumpkin spiced everything,” so we’ll celebrate some of the shows of October on this week’s Dress Circle (10/4 7:00 p.m.).  We’re covering 112 years of theatre this month beginning in 1907 with Franz Lehar’s "The Merry Widow" to 2019 and the opening of the limited run of "The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical."  

Along the way, we'll hear from another diverse group of musicals including "Memphis," "Three's Company," "110 in the Shade," "Tintypes," "Milk and Honey," "Pickwick," and "The Cat and the Fiddle."  The songs range from the well-known such as "If I Ruled the World" and "Something to Remember You By" to some rather unfamiliar fare like "God Bless the Human Elbow," "Is It Him, or Is It Me?", and "Another Terrible Day."   We guarantee that it’ll be an hour full of treats.  

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.
