Hey, I can sing a rainbow....

 Kelli O'Hara and Harry Connick, Jr.
in the 2006 revival of The Pajama Game.
Our "BLUE" for the day!
("A New Town is a Blue Town")
Harry was (BTW) a child prodigy,
playing concertos with the New Orleans Symphony at age 9.
He looks pretty good, too.

 Offering the color GOLD
is Virginia Martin and Rudy Vallee
from How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying...
"Love From A Heart Of Gold."
When Rudy was first ask to join the cast,
he asked if he could bring out his megaphone and do a few of his old hits
during the course of the show.
Frank Loesser said no way.
Ellen Greene
(hey, GREEN!)
in Little Shop Of Horrors,
and "Somewhere That's Green".

"Green Finch and Linnet Bird"
with Sarah Rice, a bird cage to sing to,
and a young, mutton-chopped Victor Garber.
Sweeney, 1979.

 Fred Astaire,
center above, and cavorting below,
does WHITE,
as in "Top Hat, White Tie and Tails"
from Top Hat, 1938.

And Shirley Bassey brings yet more GOLD
with her quintessential rendition of "Goldfinger"
written by John Barry, Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley.
The song gave Shirley her only time on 
Billboard's Top 40, peaking at Number 10,
in 1964.
