Playlist for Sunday, April 8, 201: A Real Broadway Dude! Here! On 2 On The Aisle! (I'm gushing.)

A special edition of 2 on the Aisle come Sunday: I'll be having a guest, John Cariani of The Band's Visit, in a telephone interview. John is one of those quadruple threats, in that he is an actor of classical plays, television, and film, a performer of musicals (which means he can sing and dance or "dance") and he is a playwright (most notably of Almost, Maine). Wait, is that a quintuple threat? (Visions of the Dions.) In The Band's Visit, John plays Itzik, a villager of Bet Hativka ("with a B"), singing the wonderful Middle Eastern-flavored score composed by David Yazbek. Thanks in advance, John, for letting me pick your Broadway brain on Sunday!

Plus, that gives me an excuse to play more selections from that show, as well as my usual favorites like Bernadette, Bandstand, Curtains, In Transit, and (yes, again) Nancy Walker. Our spring pledge drive ends on Friday, so we should have plenty of time for music, now untethered to begging or kneeling on rice entreaties! Whew! Thanks BTW if you gave to Jazz 90.1 during this drive...you make all this Broadway foo-fah-rah possible.
