I love to see and hear Patti Lupone (although without the unintelligible German accent she used the other night) and the always on top of her game Christine Ebersole, but was it necessary to have them in a Broadway musical with little plot and performing songs you will never care about. So here they are in something called War Paint which at least is close to being a real Broadway musical and not one of those pocketbook musicals which have no sets or props which have been cropping up way too often.

A quintessential 1950s show for the tired businessman. Starring Tony Randall with a great score, covered by such talents as Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis, and Rosemary Clooney. This Sunday at 3PM, live or streaming.

“Pure Comedy" by Father John Misty is this week's featured album on the Afternoon Ramble. Click here to watch the music video for “Ballad of the Dying Man" from his record, and tune into AR Monday through Friday from 1 - 5 pm to hear more.
