Playlist for June 19, 2016: Blame it on a summer night...

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...we had the Tonys, we had death...tap and rap 24 hours after a horrific shooting. It makes no sense, neither the act nor the acting which followed too quickly.  Yes, you could say not canceling the Tonys flies in the face of acts like this, and celebrates our rights and our stance against terrorism. But the other side of that "medallion" is stopping the silliness and standing, in silence, remembering, honoring...but, well, the sponsors wouldn't like more than 60 seconds of  that now, would they?

I'd had this 2 On The Aisle show carved out well before the events of last weekend, so it isn't as timely as I'd like...it celebrates summer and classic Broadway...as if nothing had happened. After a week, we move on, right? We put it on the back burner, and try to block it.  A stiff upper lip and forge ahead. But something has to be done, more than a slap ball change.
