Series 3 - The Broadway Edition - Episode 10

Mack and Mabel | Lady Be Good | Anyone Can Whistle


They Write The Songs, Series 3: Barry Manilow looks at the lives and works of ten famous composers of the Great American Songbook, playing rare recordings and de-constructing their songs at his piano.

Episode #10: In this, the last episode of his ten part series 'They Write the Songs - The Broadway Edition!', Barry Manilow looks at three more extraordinary musicals. 'Mack and Mabel', 'Lady Be Good' and 'Anyone Can Whistle'. Written by Jerry Herman, the Gershwins and Stephen Sondheim respectively, each show produced some outstanding songs including 'I Won't Send Roses,' 'Fascinating Rhythm' and 'Anyone Can Whistle'. Over this series Barry has featured thirty nine forgotten shows and eighty songs. Hopefully he says, the series will encourage people to seek out the complete scores of the shows - and who knows, perhaps to even stage a revival!

Episode #2: This week Barry introduces three shows, 'The Happy Time', 'House of Flowers' and 'Coco'. All of them featured the biggest stars of their day including Robert Goulet, Dianne Carroll, Pearl Bailey and believe it or not - Katherine Hepburn. The shows were written by some of the best in the business too, John Kander and Fred Ebb (The Happy Time); Alan Jay Lerner and Andre Previn (Coco) and Harold Arlen - the genius who wrote 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and Truman Capote. Yep. Truman Capote, who famously the wrote 'In Cold Blood' (House of Flowers) ... How could all of these shows be forgotten? Join Barry to hear why they should not!

Sinbad | Cabin In The Sky | Zorba | Lost in the Stars


They Write The Songs, Series 3: Barry Manilow looks at the lives and works of ten famous composers of the Great American Songbook, playing rare recordings and de-constructing their songs at his piano.

Episode #6: This week's edition features 'the world's greatest entertainer' Al Jolson, but even his pulling power couldn't save a show called 'Sinbad' from disappearing into history; Anthony Quinn, famous for the film 'Zorba', was not quite so successful at keeping the musical version on Broadway where it played for just 11 weeks ... And 'Lost in the Stars' which garnered more fantastic reviews than 'Hamilton', including this from the New York Herald Tribune, 'A work of truth, beauty and immense artistry, a triumphant piece of theatre'. Long forgotten, though the songs are spectacular.

Do I Hear A Waltz | Leave It To Me | A Tree Grows in Brooklyn | The Yearling


They Write The Songs, Series 3: Barry Manilow looks at the lives and works of ten famous composers of the Great American Songbook, playing rare recordings and de-constructing their songs at his piano.

Episode #7: This week Barry Manilow looks at four shows, all of them written by the best in the business, but all now sadly forgotten. Richard Rodgers and Stephen Sondheim wrote 'Do I Hear A Waltz'; Cole Porter wrote 'Leave It To Me' ; Arthur Schwartz and Dorothy Fields wrote 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' and Michael Leonard and Herbert Martin wrote 'The Yearling'. 'The Yearling' played for just three performances, but produced the standard 'Why Did I Choose You'. Between them songwriters Dorothy Fields and Arthur Schwartz were responsible for 'That's Entertainment',' The Way You Look Tonight', 'A Fine Romance' and 'You and the Night and the Music' and yet, 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' failed to ignite the public's imagination. In spite of some wonderful songs. Cole Porter's 'Leave It To Me' contained an all time classic, 'My Heart Belongs To Daddy' but the show it came from is hardly remembered; and Stephen Sondheim and Richard Rodgers 'Do I Hear A Waltz', was nominated for three Tony Awards, and not only contains an outstanding title number, but also one of the most witty and relevant songs about the travel industry ever written, 'What Do We Do ? We Fly!' Anyone who's ever stepped inside an airport will identify with this one!

High Spirits | Higher and Higher | Two By Two


They Write The Songs, Series 3: Barry Manilow looks at the lives and works of ten famous composers of the Great American Songbook, playing rare recordings and de-constructing their songs at his piano.

Episode #8: Tonight, Barry features 'High Spirits', the musical version of Noel Coward's 'Blythe Spirit', which was directed by The Master himself; 'Higher and Higher' by Rodgers and Hart which created the all time standard, 'It Never Entered My Mind', but which only lasted for eighty four performances; and 'Two By Two' a musical that starred Danny Kaye as Noah. This show was all set to become a major hit, until disaster struck. To find out what happened and why the memory of the show can still turn producers, directors, writers and performers pale, tune in to this evening's episode of 'They Write the Songs - The Broadway Edition!'.

Episode #9: This week's episode features two shows where both music and lyrics are written by the same person and one where they are not! Barry introduces 'Out of This World' by Cole Porter; 'No Strings' by Richard Rodgers and a show written by what should have been the award winning team of Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Jule Styne, called 'Hallelujah Baby!'.
