"I adore this show. Its a goofy, 1950's satire of music, theatre, and New York City.
The opening number is priceless, even if the jokes don't all make sense today. It's a sendup of a backers audition, and its studded with mini-parodies of other pop music genres within in.
But the real reason to buy this CD are for Charlotte Rae and Tammy Grimes - every one of their songs are hilarious, and its great to hear them both sing some original, funny tunes that no one else has recorded!
Track 14, I'm Glad I'm Not A Man, is a song that sums up Tammy Grimes' career and performance style. She pulls out every stop to deliver a hilarious anti woman's lib song. I've burned a hole through my disc listening to this over and over again!"
