Coming Soon to the Moore!
OK, just kill me now, please. Here's the thing about showtunes: the ones I like can easily go from good to horrific when turned loose in such a forum as this. But the bad ones...those are just agonizing. And I find that although new musicals come out every year, the showtune repertoire never really changes. They adhere to the classics. You seldom hear anything written after the fifties. That's about the same time the source of jazz standards petered out. They were, coincidentally, showtunes mostly from previous eras. Anyhow, I think I'll forgo this event in favor of a movie about hobbits.
