Snowy-Blowy Christmas Revisited

Something you want to enjoy 24/7. Once again, here are Donna McKechnie, Baayork Lee and Margo Sappington, plus the original ensemble of Promises Promises leading the first act showstopper “Turkey Lurkey Time.” I’m kinda hoping that the original Michael Bennett choreography will be recreated in the spring revival, as I can’t see anyone topping what the auteur did with this number. Enjoy!

"The Music and the Mirror" – September 29, 1983

From the record breaking 3,389th performance celebrating A Chorus Line becoming the longest running show on Broadway. Michael Bennett restaged the show for this single performance, bringing back original cast members and coming up with fascinating new ways of looking at the show. Here is Donna McKechnie leading several former Cassie’s through “The Music and the Mirror”

A Snowy-Blowy Christmas

Donna McKechnie leads the original cast of Promises Promises in the act one showstopper “Turkey Lurkey Time” on the 1969 Tony awards. The other two lead dancers are Baayork Lee and Margo Sappington. Choreography by Michael Bennett. Yes the lyrics are rather outrageous and the melody is infectiously 60s, but that’s part of the fun (thank you Bacharach and David). And technically, it’s a Christmas song. So in the spirit of the season and with the snow coming tomorrow, sit back and enjoy.
