“Show of Titles” will be a catchy and memorable celebration of the title songs of more than two dozen Broadway musicals spanning nine decades, ranging from “Lady Be Good” to “The Light in the Piazza”. But is the original title song disappearing from the theatrical map? What used to be the norm has become a rarity. Tony nominees, for example, from the ’60s frequently had title songs. Compare the seasons 1965-1966-67-68 where 75% of nominated musicals had title songs, with the three most recent seasons where there was no original title song from a nominated Broadway musical to the Tony’s.
“Show of Titles” is directed by Emmy Award winner Lonny’s Price (“The Best Thing That Ever Happened”, “Harold Prince: The Director’s Life” from PBS, Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close) and Emmy & Grammy Award winner Jason Howland (PBS “Handel’s Messiah Rocks” & Broadway’s Little woman & Beautiful) is the Music Director / Supervisor.
