Let's have another cup of coffee, kiss and make up, step out, misbehave, face the music, have lunch, call it off and/or just do it. (Lithuanians and Letts do it! Why not 2 on the Aisle?) Yes, this Sunday's show is LET'S-full. Not Let Us. No, that doesn't work. Too formal, too "bow our heads"...For Cole and Ira and Irving, it was always LET'S. Apostrophes, like clipboards, can be powerful in the right hands.
Plus The Drowsy and The Rotten: two parody-full musicals (like parrots, but with larger beaks and fewer feathers), packed with Georgia Engels and Brad Oscars and bards and show offs and lushy chaperones. Then the Jets and Sharks will dance in and go all "Cool" on us, bringing the temp in that gym way up (my high school proms in a gym were never THAT hot!).
Such is the range of B'way.
Lines to listen for:
No more money in the bank, no cute baby we can spank. (???)
You must love chocolate, everybody loves chocolate, say you do, say it.
I'm in training for the priesthood.
Keep your eyeball on the highball in your hand.
Gimme 10 minutes, I wanna finish my clam chowdah.
