Selections: "Try To Remember: A Look Back at Off-Broadway"
Rita Gardner, best known as the “Soon It’s Gonna Rain” girl in the original company of The Fantasticks, was an Off-Broadway gal. Appearances – besides The Fantasticks – included Jerry Herman’s revue Nightcap, Lorraine Hansberry’s To Be Young, Gifted and Black and Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well….all of which suggested Gardner’s one-woman show, Try to Remember: A Look Back at Off-Broadway. The CD, recorded live, is a tale of Off-Broadway in general (very general) and Gardner’s career in particular.
