In other words, expect bouncy favorites like "Downtown," "I Know a Place," "Don't Sleep in the Subway" and songs from her work in musicals. In addition to her pop career, Clark (born in 1932) found success in musical theatre, appearing in Sunset Boulevard and Blood Brothers, as well as in the musical films "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" and "Finian's Rainbow."
