The Dress Circle: Songs from the Shows of December
Among other things, December is the month of turquoise and the narcissus, and on this Week’s Dress Circle (12/5 7:00 p.m.), we’ll sample some of those “other things” in the form of Broadway openings in the month of December. Our survey covers 119 years from the opening of Victor Herbert’s “The Ameer” through to our latest opening, the current revival of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” which began in London’s West End. Along the way, we’ll hear from other recent hits such as “Dear Evan Hansen,” “School of Rock,” and “Spring Awakening.” We’ll also hear from classic scores like “Show Boat,” “Kismet,” “Kiss Me Kate,” and “Carmen Jones.” For good measure, we’re including “Promises, Promises” and “The Tap Dance Kid” as well as several more, but you’ll just have to tune in to see which ones.
Take a break from the bustle of the holidays with us for a joyful hour of wonderful music.
