Wonderful Town is a story of two young females who leave Ohio and travel to New York where they find themselves. The music is by Leonard Bernstein and Betty Comden and Adolph Green wrote the lyrics. It came out in 1953 and has had several revivals over time. This work is not as popular as Bernstein’s West Side Story or On the Town. Best song from it is called Ohio, also It’s Love.

Evangelicals and Art: Do I Hear a Waltz?

Do I Hear a Waltz is a musical by Richard Rodgers and Stephen Sondheim. Its about a love story in the context of an affair in Venice, Italy and is based off a film that Katherine Hepburn once acted in. It debuted on Broadway in 1965 and it was not a success and didn’t recoup its investment. For songs that I would recommend, check out “Do I Hear a Waltz” , “Someone Woke Up” and “Take the Moment.” I hope you enjoy your weekend!  Continue reading
