Broadway Memories: The Life

We saw this show, “The Life”,  about 12 years ago on Broadway and I still think it’s one of the best shows I ever saw.  I can’t believe “Titanic” -one of the worst shows I ever saw- won the Tony that year instead of this great little show.  All I can think is people didn’t want to embrace a show about hookers and pimps.

In any event, I think it is one of Cy Coleman’s best shows.  He also wrote two other shows I really like, “Sweet Charity” and “Seesaw”.  This show had a great cast, great direction and great choreography.  At least Lillias White won her Tony for this show.  Unfortunately, I can’t find a clip of her show stopping number.

Here are a couple of other clips from various sources:

Sam Harris on Today.  Sadly, he was not in it when we saw it, but his replacement was great.
