Numbers 1, 3, 5 and 10!

 Len Cariou and Lauren Bacall in Applause...
the "One Of A Kind" number.
This was Len's first Broadway musical and his first starring role.
Ms. Bacall had earlier performed on Broadway in Cactus Flower and 
Goodbye Charlie...but singing was a brand new experience.
(Best Musical of 1970, and a Best Actress Tony to LB!)

 "Three Little Maids From School,"
pictured above...from Topsy Turvy,
with Eleanor David, Shirley Henderson, and Dorothy Atkinson.
The Mikado is a long-standing G&S favorite from 1885...

 Five Guys Named Moe,
a juke-box musical featuring the songs of Louis Jordan (and friends).
Above, the "5" from the London production, done in 1990.

 Ruth Etting and "Ten Cents A Dance,"
one of her signature songs
from Simple Simon.
Ruth was "America's Sweetheart" in the 20s and 30s
doing stage, radio and films...
despite a life filled with gangsters, scandal, and shootings,
thanks to first husband, Moe "The Gimp" Snyder.
