Tonite is the latest Broadway Quarantrivia hosted by Jordan Brown at 8:00 Eastern. Notes say that there will be one off-broadway round.  (Which is the round that usually my team scores the fewest points). 

Registration here: Registration form for January 30   Registration closes at 6:00 Eastern.

It's on Zoom, so I may see you there!

Well that was ridiculously hard for our team especially the off broadway round. Fun question was name three things the wells fargo wagon has brought and two it could bring (in the song - so band instruments is not correct) several teams wrote “something special” for a could but were told that was wrong since it was not a specific thing. Only one of 14 teams got the correct answer for oldest tony nominee who did not win (and host had to review research because he had wrong answer!).

The next Broadway related Quarantrivia was just announced for Friday February 12 at 8:00 Eastern
It will be "Stephen Sondheim" and hosted by BOM's Jordan Brown.
The last time they did a Sondheim trivia, it was the person and the work - films, tv, stage, books.

Are they not doing a general Broadway one this month then?

I do not know. Not this first half of the month. So, maybe end of the month?  They haven't announced back half of February yet.

In any event, if you are interested - the sign up sheet is here: Sondheim Trivia Registration Form  Registration closes at 6:00 Eastern. BOM's Jordan Brown is the host - and I probably should glance at the Sondheim lyric books .... wondering if there will be a question to put Sondheim shows in order of length of original Broadway run.

I do badly enough in the general Broadway that I'm going to skip tonight's, but encourage any Sondheim nerds to participate! Jordan is a great host and the questions... oh, they are fun agony.

It was difficult but fun. Our team finished third. One member was excited to get a question about The Birdcage. (What two songs are in The Birdcage that had been cut from prior shows?).

The craziest (?) question was that the host, Jordan Brown, played brief clips of five actors singing the final "rise"s from The Ladies Who Lunch and you had to identify them. They were Debra Monk, Bernadette, Anna Kendrick, Christine Baranski and Tonya Pickens. We had Baranski and switched to Meryl Streep to our shame.

There were a whole bunch of questions about songs cut from shows or added to shows after the initial run. And, yes, there was a question where Getting Away With Murder was an answer. And the question was not "name the play Sondheim wrote".

Only tangentially related, but when Company got a digitally remastered re-release (the version that included Larry Kert's cut of "Being Alive"Sondheim Quarantrivia - Fri Feb 12 at 8:00 Eastern, did Elaine Stritch's last "Let's here it for the ladies who lunch" (leading into "Everybody rise!"Sondheim Quarantrivia - Fri Feb 12 at 8:00 Eastern sound really different than it had on the previous CD and cassette releases? It  was like that one line had been tracked in from an alternative take.

I was just going to post this! Too bad; I don't know enough about any of these for it to be more fun than frustrating. Looking forward to March!
