Playlist for Sunday, September 27, 2015: (Not) Raining Violets

Whattaya do when you write a show based on the weather, and the weather doesn't cooperate?  After last Saturday's deluge, and the weekend BEFORE that (two days of drip and drizzle), rainy weather seemed foremost in the forecast and uppermost in my mind. So here we are this week, with three sets of Soon It's Gonna, Singin' In The, Little Drops Of, On Prom Night, In Spain, and In My Heart, and there is NO RAIN in the forecast for the ENTIRE WEEK!  I will be thought of, when I'm thought of at all, as a witch doctor, shaking her carved stick at the sun and prompting the clouds to gather. I'm really sorry if that turns out happening.  Well...it WOULD be nice to have power like that. Clout with the weather gods.

But it will probably stay sunny, and this playlist will just come off as ill-timed or asinine.  There are some goodies though!  Vivian Blaine as Adelaide, Carol Burnett as Princess Fred, Nathan and Mathew being Producers...plus two musicals that are "new" to 2 On The Aisle: Newsies and The Mystery Of Edwin Drood.  No rain there!  See???

So meanwhile, just to be safe, pack an umbrella...for Bernadette, Judy, Gene, Fred ...cuz it's Broadway.
