Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from May 22, 2020 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

I've never seen Big. Not avoiding it, just not seen it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm WR:

I like so much your response last week about doing this show for 99 years. Comforting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Webhamster Henry:

You can actually play songs from 100 year old shows...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm WR:

Yes, recorded artifacts go back about 140 years, amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Webhamster Henry:

And some that weren't recorded on discs or cylinders are captured on piano rolls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I've played songs from 99-year-old shows before!! And when I'm 105 I will say "here's CATS which i saw 100 years ago"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm WR:

You saw Cats when you were 5? We took our kids to Cats at about that age, in about 1996.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm WR:

And now my daughter gas a YouTube account just about her and her xat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I saw CATS a year before it closed for my 5th birthday in 1999, it's one of my earliest memories
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i bet your daughter and her cat's youtube account is delightful (cats are born stars)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm diciassette:

Smithsonian Folkways strikes again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Webhamster Henry:

Let's do the Point Live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm WR:

I will ask my kids what they remember. Ex wife & i took them individually in the mid 90s and I think I took them both in 99. Lawdy where are the memories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: My all time fav record label (although I liked them even better when they were just Folkways)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: YES LETS!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm WR:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Webhamster Henry:

I saw The Frogs at the Yale Swimming pool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: WHAAAAAT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i am like the worlds biggest frogs fan!!! that's one of my ultimate time traveler bucket list shows!! what was it like?? did you get wet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm diciassette:

I second The Boyfriend, toots!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i will definitely need to check out the boy friend movie! i'm intrigued by the concept of twiggy playing a julie andrews role
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Webhamster Henry:

@BB It was like Theatre in the round, but in the pool. A gym doesn't have great acoustics for theatre.
At the time, I was going to Yale Rep shows a lot. That's when there were a lot of Brecht / Weill shows like Happy End and Mahagonny. Oh yeah, Meryl Streep and Sigourney Weaver were students then, and Geoffrey Holder and Carmen De Lavallade were in lots of shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

meryl and sigourney were in the frogs ensemble! (along with christopher durang)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Webhamster Henry:

Durang and Innaurato wrote some of the shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Bronwyn Bishop:

so cool!! i wish i could have seen those shows

Ah, man, I missed, Nilsson. Got here for the end!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Webhamster Henry:

My family was very proactive in Connecticut Theater - oddly, not at the O'Neill Theater Center though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

yikes i did not mean for that to cut off so quickly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

the perils of prerecording
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Webhamster Henry:

  9:05pm Doug Schulkind:
