Head, shoulders, knees, and toes...well, mostly!

 In our face category:
"Were Thine That Special Face"
sung by Alfred Drake as Petruchio/Fred Graham
in Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate.
And that face (and hair): Patricia Morrison's! 

 "Right Hand Man"
sung by Heidi Blickenstaff
ready to go out and "get some meat" in Something Rotten!
Above with Bryan d'Arcy James,
and I think those are John Cariani's boots to the left. :)

 Representing Heart, Eyes and Toes:
Bobby Van and Elaine Stritch 
in the 1954 revival of Rodgers and Hart's On Your Toes.
"The Heart Is Quicker Than The Eye"

 Andrew Polk, center,
one of the stars of David Yazbek's The Band's Visit,
leads another heart song,
"The Beat Of Your Heart",
seen here with Rachel Prather, John Cariani, Alok Tewari, 
and George Abud on violin.

The Heart is a popular body part on Broadway...
perhaps the most iconic representation is
from Damn Yankees, 1955.
Above, the Washington Senators finest:
Albert Linville, Nathaniel Frey, Jimmy Komack and Russ Brown.

 "I Put My Hand In"
with Carol Channing...
"Some paint, some sew, I meddle."
From Jerry Herman's original production of 
Hello, Dolly! 
They weren't afraid of mixing plaids with prints, I guess.

 And from Grease,
"Born To Hand-Jive":
Too many productions to document, so here's a sample from Edinburgh (above)...


and of course, the movie from 1978.
