Our Sunday Singers!

 Angela Lansbury, as Countess Aurelia, in Dear World,
a Jerry Herman creation from 1969.
With the opening of this show, Jerry became the first
(and only?)
composer/lyricist to have 3 musicals running on Broadway
simultaneously...Dear World, Mame, and Hello Dolly.
 We'll hear "And I Was Beautiful."

Julie Andrews and Jon Cypher (I'll get a better photo of him soon!)
 in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, 1957.
We'll hear Jon singing a "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful" duet with Julie,
and then "Coffee, Black" from Big, almost thirty years later!

 Ruth Etting will be singing
"You're the Cream in My Coffee,"
from the musical, Hold Everything!
But not the cream.

No Coffee!
Who else could play Desperate
like Charles Nelson Reilly?
From How To Succeed In Business
Without Really Trying...
Thanks, Frank Loesser, for understanding us coffee fanatics.
