Wish Jerry was singing "See My Vest" instead
Jumping forward to somthing a little more recent...wife and I managed a night out back in April and got to see Something Rotten at the Orpheum. We’ve since gone to see Chicago as well. Both of them a lot of fun. There may be more Broadway in my future.
The cast members in this clip were in the show we saw. So that’s cool.
I enjoy a good musical. Despite the fact that I can barely carry a tune, I was in few of them in high school (minor parts (Winthrop Paroo), and then eventually non-singing parts once the directors figured out how bad I was). I find myself going through phases where I'll pull up favorite musical numbers on youtube and, if I'm alone, I'll often belt them out (again, despite my lack of singing ability). Honestly, there's something about my favorites that makes me wish I could get on a stage and perform. I don't get that itch often, but I'd love to have the chance (and ability) to knock it out of the park as, say, Seymour Krelborn.
Anyway, musical theater has been on the mind lately. What do you think of it? What productions were you a part of (admit it...). What do you sing along to, sheepishly or otherwise (I'm looking at you, Cheaptoy...)?
We also say goodbye to Barbara Cook
Only Patti LaBelle could get away with this.

(Is this the name of the song? Is it a medley? Truthfully, I'm not sure, and will correct with new info.) thanks, pepp.
