Playlist for Sunday, April 3, 2016: But I Want A LATTE!

You wanna know the truth? It's a treadmill...this whole thing.  Broadway Broadway Broadway!  You don't think I get tired of tap shoes and follow spots? You think I eat, breathe, and smoke this stuff? You think I'm a perky little Broadway cheerleader 24/7?  Heck, no. I have my moments.  Like this week. I mean, sometimes I just wanna go to the mall, have a latte, and whine about my life, like a normal person. Leave my bunny slippers on for an entire day, watch William Powell and Myrna Loy get "Thin" and pet my cat. Sniff.

But my musically-starved public awaits, and I must deliver. I am called to a higher obligation, weekly!  Gershwin! Nathan! Tarantellas! Audra! The Broadway grind calls, and you know what? You listen to enough of this stuff and the treadmill starts to dance. In spite of yourself, you start to does that happen? I guess it's my form of crack, or absinthe, or puff pastry...I'm a Broadway junkie. Someone should write a song about it. And put it in a show.
