Playlist for Sunday, June 28, 2015: To Boldly Go!

Time for some new musicals!  I can't just play shows from 1956, where the composers, the performers, the dressers and the stage hands are all dead.  I mean, I love those Golden Age of Broadway shows...but really, I have to trade up once in awhile.  So Fun Home! Misia! Grey Gardens! Once!  A different sort of Broadway from the razzmatazz of  Phil Silvers and The Merm and Jerry and Jule...because we need fresh air sometimes.

Sandwiched, wrapped, California-rolled, and panini-ed with that contemporary stuff is Damn Yankees, lots O' Gershwin and The Boy Friend (with flappers and English accents) to soften the blow.  And some esoteric/cult/ever-neurotic Sondheim, so you won't think I've changed personalities completely.  Yes, I'm still here, cloaked like a Romulan in Klingon space, but yet the same old Captain of my own Broadway Enterprise.  Okay, that was cheesey.

Trust me.  It'll be alright.
