There is a terrific recording of one of the songs from the show, "All That I Am," by Karen Mason which can be found on BWW Radio (Web Radio under "Multimedia" on the left). Select the album "Lyrics By Leipart" from the Library.
BTW, on BWW Radio you can also hear Rachel York singing "When The Camera Isn't There," a song from LADY ON A CAROUSEL; Greg Jbara singing "I

The Museum of the City of New York contains the largest collection of New York stage and Broadway memorabilia.
There is a permanent installation on "Broadway" located on the 3rd floor. It includes history, artifacts, anecdotes, costumes, a set design or two, and props. One can see the store-bought puppet used to audition for the original cast of AVENUE Q, various costumes from RENT, a finale top hat from the original pro
The royal tour of Europe starts here. After all the sound and fury over those extravagant ticket prices, Barbra Streisand finally set about the business of proving that she really does deserve all that financial support. Though there were no signs of rampant Barbra-mania in the cavernous, 13,000-capacity Hallenstadion before the orchestra struck up the overture from Funny Girl, a ruthlessl
1. The 1958 London West End cast starring Norman Wisdom. This was released on LP and released on an Angel CD, available from Amazon.
2. The 1952 British film version of the musical entitled CHARLEY'S AUNT stars two of the original Broadway cast: Ray Bolger and Allen Ann McLerie. Songs from the soundtrack were released on a commercial LP by an independent label, ECNAD.
There is a semi-bare stage, some lighting, a few props, inventiveness, intelligence, humor, accessible language, good acting, an engaging story, breath-taking stagecraft and a glorious chorus.
It's a down-right good time. It's why one goes to the theatre.

I suspect that Margo is doing fine. She is healthy and has use of her fingers to type as she posted on at least one other site just two days ago. Perhaps she simply needs a break from BWW. It happens.
CORAM BOY - Not to be missed. (NO spoilers here) Apr 29
2007, 12:37:01 AM
CORAM BOY is what sets theatre in general apart from other media and performing arts. This import from London's National Theatre is mesnmerizing, affecting and theatrical. The Imperial was SRO, and the audience gave the show a long, loud, and an honest-to-goodness well-deserved standing ovation at this evening's performance. I'll leave the review for the reviewers. I will say, however, that CORAM BOY is a theatre experience akin to the RSC'S NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, and it is not to be missed. My
