News   Go Inside Greenwich Village's Showtune Dive Bar, Marie's Crisis – "The Island of Misfit Toys for People Who Love Showtunes" (Video) The American Theatre Wing's "Working in the Theatre" video series visited Marie's Crisis, a bar where theatre lovers gather around the piano every evening and sing their favorite show tunes.

Located just across Seventh Avenue from Sheridan Square in New York's Greenwich Village (reputedly on the spot where Founding Father Thomas Paine died), the piano bar "has spent the last four decades as an oasis for the musical theatre lover. Whether it’s Gershwin, Loesser, Menken or Brown, gather around the bar and belt out your favorite Broadway standard."

The new video shows patrons performing songs from Chicago, South Pacific, Little Shop of Horrors, The Wizard of Oz and others. See if you can identify them all. Click here, and be prepared to sing along.
