  1. Steve V. Says:

    This is a quibble, or a mini-quibble, even, but could Euan Morton’s
    rendition of “Reviewing the Situation” possibly be from “The Broadway Musicals of 1937?” I thought the only song with that title was from Lionel Bart’s “Oliver” which opened on Broadway in 1962.
    I hope you’ll correct me if I’m wrong.
    –Steve (who was probably a fact-checker in a previous existence)

    My eagle eye must be slightly astigmatic.
    I left off the all-important “!” in the title of “Oliver!” Composer/lyricist/book writer Lionel Bart must have thought that particular punctuation mark was a good omen for the success of his future shows, because he titled two of his later ones “Blitz!” and “Twang!” (Both flopped.)
    I wondered why I thought that the Broadway “Oliver!” dated from 1962 when it was included in the “Broadway Musicals of 1963.”
    Turns out that it toured the US in ’62 before opening on Broadway on Sunday, January 6th, 1963. But it played 8 previews prior to that.
    So maybe it started previews on Monday, Dec. 31st, 1962?
    That would at least save my “eagle-eyed” reputation.
