Want a taste of what to expect from our January concert, The Gershwins in Hollywood? TMTP artistic director talks with Gershwin historian Deena Rosenberg on our radio program Footlight Parade. In this excerpt, Rosenberg deconstructs the beloved tune, "They Can't Take That Away From Me", made famous by Fred Astaire in the film Shall We Dance.
A SPECIAL TMTP MEMBERS EVENT
"Good evening, and welcome to Musicarnival!" If you remember producer Johnny Price greeting you with those words at his summer tent theater in Warrensville Heights in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, you'll want to stroll down memory lane during this lively evening. If Musicarnival is new to you, don't miss this chance to learn more!
Bill Rudman will host the program with Johnny's daughter Diana Price, who will share her Musicarnival recollections. Bill and his team recently completed restoration of the Musicarnival Audio Archives -- full-length, live recordings of more than 100 classic musicals such as Oklahoma!, Show Boat, Gypsy and Guys & Dolls. See you there -- at a beautiful library that's just down the road from the site of Johnny's tent.
