CONSTELLATIONS' Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson Set for THEATER TALK This Weekend
Also on the program, conductor/arranger Fred Barton previews his American Showstoppers concert, celebrating prolific songwriter Irving Berlin (1888-1989). Barton is joined by two of the performers appearing in the show -- Tony-winning Broadway favorite Karen Ziemba and newcomer Bruce Landry. The duo performs Berlin's masterpiece of counterpoint, "You're Just In Love", introduced by Ethel Merman and Russell Nype in Berlin's 1950 musical, Call Me Madam.
