Celebrating Sondheim: 70s Summer Stock Style
Posted by: broadwaydanwi (webmaster@memoriesofmelodytop.com) 05:30 am EDT 03/22/20

In celebration of Stephen Sondheim's 90th birthday today, Sunday, March 22, 2020, I just published a new page on my "Memories of Melody Top" website about a 1976 production of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC that starred Earl Wrightson (Fredrik) and Lois Hunt (Desiree). Supporting roles were filled with a rich gallery of actor-singers: David Holliday (Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm), Holland Taylor (Countess Charlotte Malcolm), Zoya Leporska (Madame Armfeldt), Alice Cannon (Anne), David Gary (Henrik) and Susan Rush (Petra). A very young Cris Groenendaal played Frid. In addition to production photographs and newspaper reviews, I will be sharing one song per day – today through Friday, March 27 – from a live recording made via the sound system at Melody Top Theater. I cannot think of a better way to honor the man who elevated the quality of musical theater for these past 64 years than to sit back, relax and enjoy a vintage Sondheim score. Because of what is happening in the world right now, I have decided not to release the first-act duet written for the characters of Charlotte and Anne at this time. You'll still get to hear Holland's singing voice when a clip of "A Weekend in the Country" is released on Tuesday. Please remember to visit the page each day around noon for a new audio clip!
