Hi there, guys and dolls! I do hope you are having a fantabulous holiday season. I have heard through the party line that in many places it’s going to be a chilly new year. Now don’t let that bring you down, my darlings! If the weather outside is frightful, then you need to do something truly delightful. Let the party come to you, in fine New York style. Broadway style to be precise.
The spirit of the holidays can continue in your heart and in your home. I have found this absolutely swinging site called BroadwayHD. My goodness, the hours of entertainment this streaming channel can provide will have you wanting to stay in no matter how swell the shindig you’ve been begged to attend has promised to be. Here are three favorites (among many) that will put a song in your heart and a spring in your step. So get yourself a plate of your favorite party snacks, a cocktail or two and have a holiday happening right in your own living room.
Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn – a new addition to the channel’s line up, this one will have you grinning ear to ear through the whole performance. It’s ‘nothing but blue skies from now on.’ Take that, old man winter!
The Man Who Came to Dinner – hopefully this art is not imitating your life. And if it is, why not watch this with your lovely guests who are not making any attempt to leave. The snappy dialogue and witty banter will have you laughing right off your seat (and maybe get your Aunt Mabel and her brood right out your door).
She Loves Me – dear friends, end your triple feature with this delightful holiday romance. Based on the play Parfumerie (which also inspired the movie The Shop Around the Corner), it’ll warm the cockles of any retail clerk’s heart and remind us of the good old days when shopping was a grand event.
And to you and yours, I wish you the happiest of new years and the best of all of our lives yet to come.
