Playlist for Sunday, March 29, 2015: But it's weird! You can't hum along! KIMMMMM!!!

I think this playlist is all about ME!  Sorry to be indulgent, but I've had a few weeks of blockbusters, and they're sort of making my teeth ache.  Now I'm back to my old tricks with those rare, weird, cultish gems...the shows no one knows, the songs you can't hum...Oh, and some Sondheim, too!

Biggest find: Nefertiti...which played on Broadway for 44 performances and POOF! It was gone, and I MEAN GONE.  You couldn't find it!  They did make a cast album,
but try to find that, in its LP format even! (They never made it into a CD, nor can you find much research...the liner notes on the album are IT.)  So it has been discovered (on ebay!), and we will suffer...I mean, ENJOY 4 numbers from this thing.  Andrea Marcovicci played the Egyptian queen, Robert Lupone (yup, Patti's brother) was Akhnaton, and Michael Nouri played the mean Pharoah, who knocks everybody off at the end.  Spoiler Alert, but hey, that's history. 

We'll take that edge off with Seesaw...and Camelot....and Cinderella, the original (televised live!) production of 1957 with Dame Julie...and then go right back at it with a sample of a French musical, Romeo & Juliette, which was tremendously popular in Europe in the early 2000's, but we were never hip enough to get it on this side of the pond, I guess.

And a new favorite...Take Me To The World, from Evening Primrose.  Listen for a young Anthony Perkins.  :))) Thanks for indulging me!
