Once upon a time, Broadway was the exclusive domain of nice blue-haired ladies from the Upper East Side and gays who needed something to do after a hard-day of gentrifying the crappy neighborhoods they lived in. Brought together by a shared love of jazz hands, the biddies and the bohos had the Great White Way to themselves until somewhere along the line, producers decided to reach out to a wide audience (read: New Jersey). Today, you can find the Fabulous Invalid on television in film– and of course YouTube, where the Internet goes to get weird. Curtain up!

      Wow, Chess is my favourite musical bar none. Not the horribly messed up Broadway version, but the original concept album. I spent far too many hours miming the songs.

      I am so greatful for youtube.com. Not only can one find interesting show clips like the one featured on this weeks post with the nude Swedish guys with the cute butts but also stars that have long since past but come to mind from time to time.

      Unfortunately for the younger generation the only place to see Ms. Pearl Bailey doing Hello Dolly is on youtube. Why the all black version of Hello Dolly is not available on DVD is a mystery but that is one dvd I would buy.

      On easter sunday I saw how The Easter Parade (Judy Garland, Fred Astaire) was no longer a traditional showing TCM or AMC (unless it came on in the wee hours of the morning). It was no where to be found but be that as it may I looked to youtube and not only found many of the great number that were in that movie but some creative person had spliced a lot of them into a ten minute clip that I enjoyed over and over.

      Thank you, whoever you are that created youtube.com.

      Thank you for sharing the LSOH and Chess/Rent vids were amazingly awful… I love it!

      This has to be my all time favorite Bizzare Broadway vid though… These poor boys singing Defying Gravity.

      @gurlene:
      I love that we can find gems like Pearl Bailey as Dolly. It was the first Broadway show I ever saw as a 16 year old fairy-in- training, spring of ’68. It’s a trip I’ll never forget, my first to NYC
