Classic Tony!

 Rex and Julie,
all spiffed up from the gutter,
and putting one over on that oily Zoltan Karpathy (beard).

We'll hear Rex and "Why Can't The English?"

 The Music Man,
above the movie version of "Marion The Library"
with Shirley Jones.
The first librarian was Barbara Cook,
below, with Robert Preston,
the only Harold Hill.
Best Musical of 1958,
winning over West Side Story.

 Jean Stapleton, Jackie Scholle, and Cherry Davis
get a reprise of "Heart" in Damn Yankees.
Best Musical of 1956...
Love the hair, Jean (first in line), in awe of Stephen Douglass.

 Carol Haney as Gladys and Stanley Prager as Prez,
and "Her Is"
from Adler and Ross' The Pajama Game.

(as well as one for Carol).

Chita Rivera as Rosie Alvarez
