BROADWAY FLOPS HAVE WIDE
Legendary theatre, film and TV composer
Elmer Bernstein, who turned 80 last April 4, not only showed up - he flew in for the
performance. In the past, special
efforts to attend have been made by Kanter & Ebb, Comden and Greene, Jay Livingston and Ray
Evans, Dorothy Rodgers and Dale Wasserman - to name only a few.
Why would these creative superstars rearrange their tight schedules to attend a York Theatre
Company Musicals in Mufti production - a series of under-appreciated musicals which is a
politically correct phrase meaning a flop - presented in
staged concert readings. In other words, no costumes, no scenery, actors read from a script and
tickets top out at $30.
Although the works failed to succeed on Broadway their early demise wasn't because of the
music. Brought back to life in their purest form those that created those bare bones feel a
Last night the sold out show had Bernstein attending How Now Dow
The York Theatre Company's Artistic Director James Morgan spoke with Broadway To
"I'd never met him but, along with many, many people, I am an admirer of his work. Interestingly
enough, my main interest in him is the show of his that we are doing How Now Dow
Jones. I never saw it," confessed Morgan about the 1967 Broadway production directed by
that ran 220 performances on the plot of a romance that sets Wall Street in a panic as the Dow is
manipulated to the all-time high of 1,000 points. Max Shulman wrote the libretto, and the score
represents one of two Broadway shows written by film composer Elmer Bernstein - his other
show was Merlin.
"I was growing up in Florida when How Now happened," continued Morgan. "I got the
record - maybe in college - and have always been intrigued by it."
"In this series, I decided to do shows connected with George Abbott and he directed
this. It was a great justification for doing How Now Dow Jones. There is a lot of interest
"Mr. Bernstein has gone out of his way to re-arrange his schedule to come here. He flew in
Saturday afternoon and was here for the 8 o'clock performance," related an appreciative Morgan.
"My understanding is that he flew in to New York on Tuesday then flew somewhere else and
then come back in Saturday to see the show."
Bernstein has been a busy boy. On October 27 he received the King Vidor Memorial Award for
lifetime achievement at a black-tie gala ceremony at the historic Fremont Theatre in San Luis
Obispo. As part of the evening's festivities, a screening of To Kill a Mockingbird followed
the award presentation, part of the 10th Annual San Louis Obispo Film Festival which
saluted the Academy Award winning composer.
Far From Heaven written and
directed by Todd Haynes has a score by Elmer Bernstein
Then came the Far From Heaven movie premieres. Far From Heaven, featuring a
by Bernstein, opened November 8th in Los Angeles and New York. It will open November 15th
in 14 additional markets and November 22nd in wider release.
The film, written and directed by Todd Haynes, stars Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid and Dennis Haysbert and co-stars Patricia Clarkson.
From all of that red carpet hoopla Bernstein jetted back to New York so he could climb the
steps to the York Theatre at Saint Peter's, 54th Street & Lexington Avenue.
"We'll have a little reception for him with the cast," said Morgan.
Morgan and The York Theatre Company have a long history of being able to get the creators
involved - people who do not normally do this type of thing.
"That is correct," Morgan answered.
"We've had a lot of the original creators participate. When we did Oh Captain I called up
Jay Livingston and Ray Evans and they flew here for that," Morgan said regarding the guys
who penned the music and lyrics.
The original 1958 Broadway cast recording of Oh Captain was a Jose Ferrer production
which starred Tony Randall and Jacquelyn McKeever.
"When we did Seventy Girls
Seventy John Kanter and Fred Ebb were very much involved. They were around during the
whole rehearsal period," Morgan added.
"Mary Rodgers was here last Sunday night for Jumbo," related Morgan about the
of Richard Rodgers. "She loved it. She had last seen it when she was four. She saw the
original production, and said she liked this better."
Bob Wright of Wright and Forrest came to
Kean," reported Morgan.
The work of Robert Wright and George Forrest is
associated with adaptations of classical themes into operettas such as Kismet and Song
1961 offering, Kean, - based on a play by Sartre - was an original work. The Broadway
starred Alfred Drake, Lee Venora, and Joan Weldon.
"He was very much involved in his musical Kean when we did it," continued Morgan
Tony Award winner Dale Wasserman,
often called elusive, attended the York production of Beggars' Holiday
"Dale Wasserman, who wrote the book for Beggars' Holiday
with Duke Ellington and John Latouche, came in for that," continued Morgan.
That tuner opened at the Broadway Theatre on
January 28, 1946, closing on March 29, 1947 after a run of 111
Among the highpoints was the future Marge Champion
dancing with Herb Ross and Paul Glodkin. The production featured
Alfred Drake as Macheath and Zero Mostel as Hamilton Peachum.
"Joan Fine was
around for Carmelina and Burton Lane, who is no longer with us, was around for part of
the discussion after one of the shows."
Carmelina with music by Burton Lane and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner opened April 8, 1979
at the St James Theatre.
Although it ran for only 17 performances, a 1979 cast album
recorded. The 14 tracks, conducted by Don Jennings, included the original cast plus Paul
and Bernie Knee.
"We've done several Comden and Green shows
and Adolph were around for those."
"We did The Human Comedy and Galt MacDermot
was around for a lot of that," continued Morgan about the production that featured music by
MacDermot with a book by William Dumaresq. This pop-folk musical about small-town life in
America during the early
days of World War II is based on the novel by William Saroyan.
It opened Wednesday, December 28, 1983 at the
Joseph Papp Public Theatre with a run of 92
performances and transferred to Broadway opening April 5, 1984 at the Broadway
Theatre closing April 15th after 19 previews and 13 performances.
That may have been a short Broadway run but it was enough to garner Stephen Geoffreys a Tony
nomination for his portrayal of Homer Macauley and resulted in his being cast in the movie
Heaven Help Us after the producer/director of that flick attended a performance of A
Human Comedy and was impressed by Geoffrey's acting ability.
An original Broadway cast album was also recorded with MacDermot
conducting a cast that included; Cass Morgan, Donna Murphy, Gordon Connell, Leata
Galloway, Joseph Kolinski, Anne Bobby, Kathleen Rowe McAllen, Rex Smith, Josh Blake,
Kenneth Bryan, Laurie Franks, Donnie Kehr, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Debra Byrd,
Christopher Edmonds, Stephen Geoffreys, Walter Hudson, David Johnson, Liza Kirshner,
Bonnie Koloc, Olga Merediz, Grady Mulligan, Daniel Noel, Louis Padilla, Caroline Peyton,
Vernor Spencer, Don Tramon, and Michael Wilson.
As for Galt MacDermot, on Friday November 22, he and his New Pulse Band perform
the New York premiere of Beaus and Eros at Carnegie Hall.
"We're pretty well known and respected," continued Morgan about his award winning York
Unfortunately, a good reputation has no direct relationship to a fat bank account.
"We need to do some fundraising," admitted Morgan. "Coming off this year with 9/11 we're
hurting. And hurting more than most because we are very small, even though we are starting our 34th season. Then
when something cataclysmic happened, like 9/11 that you have no control over, it can really,
really hurt you as it has us - along with a lot of other people, but it seems to have
seriously hurt us. So, we are holding on and continuing to do good work. We are
currently interviewing for a development person - an expert grant writer - for a full time position."
"We just need all of the help we can get."
Directed by Sheryl Kaller the cast for How Now, Dow Jones had Brooks
Ashmanskas starring as the neurotic Charley and Cheryl Freeman plays his girlfriend Kate. Others in
the cast include; Kristin Maloney, David Blackburn, AJ Irvin, Ian Knauer, Kaitlin Hopkins, David Garrison, Mitchell Greenberg, Becky Barta and Gwendolyn
The York Theatre stages a Spring and Fall Mufti series. All shows run five performances.
Audience discussions follow each matinee performance.
Next up in this series is New Girl In Town, which is
composer-lyricist Bob Merrill's musical version of Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie, with a
book by George Abbott, who also directed the original production. The Broadway production in
1957 starred Gwen Verdon, Thelma Ritter and Cameron Prud'homme, and was choreographed by
Bob Fosse. Michael Montel will direct, with Music Direction by Jack Lee. Theatre at Saint

THE MUSIC GOES ROUND AND
A WONDERFUL WORLD by Tony
Bennett and k.d. lang falls under the category of - so what's not to like?.
Inspired by the songs associated with Louis Armstrong, a friend and colleague of Bennett's as well
as a major musical influence on both performers.
The making of A Wonderful World
employed a unique recording process and marked the first Bennett album project to be recorded at Bennett
Studios, a state-of-the-art production and recording facility located in Englewood, New Jersey, and owned
and operated by Tony's son, Dae Bennett.
Bennett Studios, which opened in January 2002,
has a fiber optic connection to the John Harms Theatre, a 1,200-seat vaudeville theater in Englewood, which
allowed for Bennett and Lang to record in the theater while feeding the tracks to the nearby Bennett
As Tony explains, "k.d. and I are both live performers first and we loved the idea of recording in
what is a very natural setting for us -- a beautiful and acoustically sound theatre like the John Harms. It
provided a real sense of drama and spontaneity that can be hard to recreate in a typical recording studio."
Tony's touring quartet - Lee Musiker, piano, Paul Langosch, bass, Clayton Cameron, drums and
Gray Sargent, guitar - provided the album's musical accompaniment along with Scott Hamilton -
saxophone on selected tracks - and a 50-piece orchestra.
