When West Side Story debuted in 1957, the producers, directors and actors were all worried about the audience reaction. The ending of the show was dramatic and tragic, but the message and meaning was important. The book by Arthur Laurents, and the music by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim could not have been better. The dancers, choreographed by Jerome Robbins ... Read More »

I think I’m a sucker for lost continents, lost treasures and mystical realms. I love the song “Lost Horizon” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Although the movie did not fare well, I loved it and I particularly loved the title song. So Burt, you made one fan very happy, and I’m sure many more! Read More »
Back in the days of records, producers had an A side and a B side, or flip side. They usually put equally powerful songs on the B side, but sometimes they would put throw away songs on the back. One of my favorite flip sides is “Warm and Tender” by Burt Bacharach and Syd Shaw (Hal David is also credited ... Read More »
I first saw Richard Burton as King Arthur from Camelot on Ed Sullivan’s show back in the 60’s. It was JFK’s favorite musical, and I believe he tried to model his Presidency on this. Richard Burton was wonderful. Like Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady, Richard couldn’t really “sing”, but he could feel, and he could eloquently, with his magical ... Read More »

We will be featuring Sergio this entire upcoming weekend here at Movies Broadway Singers and Beyond. If ... Read More »
When I first heard that they were going to make a musical based on the sinking of the Titanic, I was horrified. I was afraid to see the show. Then one night…by accident, I heard “The Blame”. I did not know the name of the song, nor the show it came from, but the lyrics made it so obvious and ... Read More »
Did you know that the movie Legend has two soundtracks? One was created by genius Jerry Goldsmith (as well as the Sand Pebbles, Chinatown, and The Wind and the Lion). But another soundtrack was created by a group called Tangerine Dream composed of Yes members John Anderson and Bryan Ferry. So, now there are two versions of the soundtrack and ... Read More »
Many years ago, and I do mean many, my husband took me to a store that sold stereo equipment (if they call it something else today, then I’m dating myself). However, like so many men, my husband loves audio equipment and he was convinced that we needed new speakers. I didn’t agree at all. In the store, they sat me ... Read More »
Many times some of the most beautiful music has come from Broadway plays that have not been successful. Sometimes the play will open for a week or two or sometimes not at all. Sometimes the composer will be able to use the song in another show. Sometimes not. Two of my favorite songs, Meadowlark (from The Bakers Wife) and Summertime ... Read More »
