Last week Mel Larch presented a cavalcade of songs from shows that won Tony Awards for Best Musical. Wednesday afternoon on The AIR, you can hear samples of the nominees for this year’s Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Revival of a Musical. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
At 3 PM Mel Larch presents a new hour of great musical theater on Curtain Call. It’s our third annual Tony Awards preview, with songs from each of the nominated musicals, presented just one day after they were announced.
In this show you will hear multiple songs from each of the nominees for Best Musical: Hadestown, The Myth, The Musical; Beetlejuice The Musical, The Musical, The Musical; Tootsie; Ain’t Too Proud To Beg: The Life and Times of The Temptations; and The Prom. We also have one song each from the revivals of Kiss Me Kate and Oklahoma.
It was a little tricky putting this show together because so many of the nominated musicals have cast albums that have not yet been released (or recorded, in one case), but we were able to pull together enough preview performances and demos of songs to bring you a full sampling of the best of this year’s Broadway offerings. We even give you a not-so-subtle hint about next week’s show along the way. The 2019 Tony Awards will be broadcast on CBS on June, 9, so you can tune in and see who won this year’s prize.
After the new hour of Curtain Call, stick around for two additional episodes from the Curtain Call archives. Curtain Call can be heard Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 7 AM and Saturday at 6 PM. An all-night marathon of Curtain Call episodes can be heard Wednesday nights, beginning at Midnight.
