Musical Theatre Melodies - 18th March - "Carnival"

Rob Morrison's next "Musical Theatre Melodies" broadcast on Tuesday, 18th March at 9 p.m. will feature Bob Merrill's Carnival, (based on Helen Deutsch's screenplay for the MGM motion picture "Lili" and a story by Paul Gallico), from the original 1961 Broadway cast recording starring Anna Maria Alberghetti, James Mitchell, Pierre Olaf, Jerry Orbach, Henry Lascoe and Kaye Ballard.

This will be preceded by a 'live' telephone introduction to the musical from New York-based theatre critic and Internet columnist Peter Filichia.

And will be followed by demo recordings of songs from the score of Carnival performed by Bob Merrill; plus orchestral selections from Bronislau Kaper's Academy Award-winning score from the soundtrack of the 1953 MGM movie Lili and the song "Hi Lili, Hi Lo" performed by Leslie Caron and Mel Ferrer.
