On Broadway: Pump Boys and Dinettes

This is one of the best smaller, off-broadway, glorified concert shows that I've ever directed. It's an absolute gem, and fun to direct, star in, and listen to. I would urge anyone in the theatre community needing to make a little money at the expense of some really talented singers/musicians to pull this one out and let 'er rip.

I've been living in the Big Apple for 30 years now. Have seen countless B'way shows - musicals, comedies, drama - and this is in the top 5 of all time best. In fact it must be my most memorable musical since after all these years I still love these tunes. Phantom, who? Combine the hometown feel of Mayberry, the wit of Seinfeld, and music you feel like singing along with and that's this show/album. This would be a perfect show for local theatres to produce: small cast, one set = big bucks. Oh how I wish for a revival!
Pump Boys and Dinettes
This is one of my favorite albums. Even if you've never seen the Broadway show, the songs are delightful and will keep you singing long after the music has stopped!
