One of the categories on Jeopardy! last week was “Broadway.” So I thought it would be perfect for my blog, because of both timing and topic. Here are the answers; I’ll post the questions – that’s how Jeopardy! works, folks – in a few days:
- This ‘60s show lacked nudity at the public theatre; it “let the sunshine in” when it moved to Broadway.
- Patti LuPone got ticked off, then paid off when she was replaced in this composer’s “Sunset Boulevard.”
- This American opera was revived on Broadway in 2012 in a shortened version with no goat cart.
- In 1942 the cast of this great tunesmith’s revue “This is the Army” formed the Army’s only integrated unit.
- 1927’s “The Royal Family” was a comic portrayal of this American theatrical family of the day.
How well do you know Broadway? Come back in a few days for the questions…
Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day! And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well. They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don, http://www.randolphmase.com. On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
