Showtune Sunday: "A Catered Affair"
More and more, I think that history will prove that A Catered Affair was the great musical of 2008. Perhaps it's not for everyone, and perhaps the Broadway incarnation was flawed. But once this gets to the regionals, its complex emotional landscape and its common-man story could make it a staple. Yes, Harvey isn't a very good singer in the clip above of "Coney Island", one of the great songs in Bucchino's score. But listen to that lyric...it's really something.
