Showtune Sunday: "The Witches Of Eastwick"
Fans of the new television show Kings (or the old television show Deadwood) will probably enjoy this clip, featuring both shows' lead villain, the inimitable Ian McShane, as Darrel Van Horn in the musical adaptation of The Witches of Eastwick. The show never transferred after its mixed-review London run in 2000 (landing instead a couple of years ago in a regional production at D.C.'s Signature Theatre). Listening to this irritatingly chipper duet (featuring McShane and the always divine Maria Friedman) it's not hard to understand the decision to let it die a quick death. Ugh.
