PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Todd Graff, Writer and Director of Cult Film "Camp," Picks Influential Show Tunes
02 Oct 2013
"Night Letter" from Two Gentlemen Of Verona. My mom always encouraged me to be creative. In eighth grade, she let me stay home from school if I'd been up all night writing a play — terrible as I'm sure my 8th grade plays were. When I was ten, she took me to the musical version of Two Gentlemen after it transferred to Broadway from Central Park because she thought it would be a good introduction to Shakespeare. It was. And I still listen to this outrageously funky first act finale to this day.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
