Make 'Em Laugh


Before the term "musicals" identified the Broadway genre, they were called "musical comedies." The shows were light and often very funny. Serious subject matter like murder, assassins, shipwrecks, prejudice and terminal illness were not on stage. On this edition of Broadway Bound we look at songs from Broadway that make us laugh. The clever lyrics, the delivery of the performance, the tongue in cheeks nature, the satire of the songs is bound to put a smile on your listeners' faces.

Join us for 30 comic, fun-time moments from Broadway musicals delivered by Carol Channing, Elaine Stritch, Judy Kaye, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, and a few good men.
