Well....BLO is in its second week of LIZZIE BORDEN rehearsals and things are getting pretty grim - so interject a note of humor (however dark) I propose the following
The fabled review NEW FACES OF 1952 opened on Broadway , ran for nearly and year and was made into a movie in 1954. It introduced such performers as Paul Lynde, Alice Ghostley, Carol Lawrence, Ronny Graham and Mel Brooks
One of the hit numbes was "Monotonous" sung by Eartha Kitt (born in the year Lizzie Borden died
EARTHA KITT - MONOTONOUS - NEW FACES ( 1954)]
and all you lively Bostonians .... who can forget the incomparable Alice Ghostley?
