: Acting Edition
A selection of the best songs and sketches from a number of Broadway revues. You'll find the work of Pulitzer Prize winners Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock, who also wrote Fiddler on the Roof. There's a bright number by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams of Bye, Bye Birdie fame. The gifted comedy writer Mel Brooks contributed his wild comedy satire of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, a sketch generally regarded as the high point of the fabulously successful Broadway revue New Faces. Another marvelous sketch, often considered Auberbach's best, is A Song to Forget. (A musical performer told us that she's seen copies of this revue in several New York casting offices. Probably this is because there are so many gems in it that help performers display talent.) These pieces function beautifully together. The musical revue is sometimes neglected mainly because of the difficulty in finding good material. Here that problem is solved! Optional sets or w/curtains.
