Here we are at another Monday. Whew, time has flown as it is the end of January already! Well, as it is Monday, that means it is also Monday's Music Moves Me. This week we have the theme of Broadway Musicals.
I thought I would give you a little tid bit about Broadway Musicals before I pile in with my selections for this week.
Broadway Musical Facts
1. The musicals started Sept. 12, 1866
2. The first musical in New York was The Black Crook
3. Vaudeville was the first of the musicals
4. Contrary to first thought, of A Chorus Line, the longest running musical is Phantom of the Opera. It has been running since 1988 without closing.

This is a favorite although, I actually have never seen it in theatre:
