Sunday (Broadway) Moms

 Our Salute to Moms this Sunday will include:
an outtake from Yankee Doodle Dandy, 1942,
sung by Jimmy Cagney (above with Joan Leslie),
"You Remind Me Of My Mother."

 From Minnie's Boys:
Daniel Fortus at left as Harpo,
and Shelley Winters as Minnie,
"Mama, A Rainbow" 
(the only song to "come out of" the show,
later recorded by Steve Lawrence and Jim Nabors).

 Elliot Gould and Lillian Roth 
in I Can Get It For You Wholesale...
2 wonderful mom songs here:
"Momma Momma Momma"
"Eat A Little Something."

 Ethel Merman
does the iconic Broadway MOM song,
"Rose's Turn" from Gypsy,
and "My Mother Would Love You"
from Panama Hattie.

 Carol Channing, Eileen Brennan,
and Sondra Lee (wearing the best socks? boots? in the world)
at the evidently very COLD recording session for Hello Dolly,
We'll here "Motherhood" 
sung by this trio.

 "Confession To A Park Avenue Mother"
is from Parade, an early Jerry Herman revue.
That's him on the left with Charles Nelson Reilly,
who appeared in several Herman shows.

 Marissa Jaret Winokur and Harvey Fierstein
in Hairpray!
"Mama, I'm A Big Girl Now."

A reclining Christine Ebersole 
and Mary Louise Wilson
in Grey Gardens.
A mom and daughter relationship for you and your shrink to discuss!
We'll hear "Will You?", "Peas In A Pod," and
"Around The World."
