Here’s an email that Milton Jones sent that I decided I’d pass along to you:
If you like show tunes and were not at RiverCenter last night (Tuesday), beg, borrow or steal tickets to Wednesday night’s show of 100 Years of Broadway. 5 truly great voices singing all of the favorites. Jeanette and I enjoyed it as much as anything we have seen down there, and the audience was the most enthusiastic I have ever been in anywhere. The standing ovation went on so long they were literally begging us to sit down so they could do the encore and still people were up applauding and shouting.
I was there, and he is totally accurate in his report, and he is right about your not missing tonight’s show if you like the great show tunes of the last 100 years on Broadway.
Also, take a grandchild, nephew, niece or any kid you love with you. The piano player/emcee asked the silver-haired audience to start doing that to expose youngsters to the great show music of yesterday and today. He said that if we don’t, the form will die. That would indeed be a shame.
