Playlist for Sunday, June 14, 2015: Where's that hammock???

The Broadway blender, having blended, moves on....We have another week of BIG DEAL composers, cuz some got left out last week.  This over-look-ification was not intentional.  You'd just need an entire 2 weeks to do a dedication to Broadway's Best, right?  So this Sunday:  Jules Styne, Rodgers and Hart, the Gershwin boys, and of course Cy Coleman, who has a birthday on Sunday.  Perfect timing, and a perfect excuse, to showcase a bit of City of Angels, Seesaw, Charity, and a little Little Me. 

And Noel Coward!  What about him? He'll be here with his pre-Love Boat cruising show, Sail Away, starring Ms. Stritch as the American divorcee/cruise director who falls for a "younger passenger." Well, that's what the liner notes say.  Leave it to Elaine to make the most of an opportunity. "Didn't I meet you on a ...summer cruise?"

A soupcon of drinking songs, and I ain't talkin' lemonade (Juno, Pump Boys, Ben Franklin) and a quartet of Lazy tunes (definitely get into the hammock for that set!) will help round out the show...with "I Am Adolpho" from The Drowsy Chaperone as our finale.  Ha-cha!
