    Ep 12 – Wildcat

    Ep 12 – Wildcat

    A virgin to the Broadway stage, Lucille Ball stars in Wildcat! This unrefined gem was the product of Broadway legends Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh, and N. Richard Nash. They struck oil with the hit number "Hey, Look Me Over" but reviews declared the show crude nonetheless. See what all the drilling is about, hear Lucy sing, and stop us from making anymore oil puns in this description!
    Featured Recording: Wildcat Original Broadway Cast Recording – RCA Victor - 1961

Love this!!

Love the hosts, love the podcast, love the show choices!! I’ve been obsessed with Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds since the 70s, what a delight to hear the 2-parter on this! Requests for future episodes: Cyrano (1973 w Christopher Plummer), Golden Rainbow (Steve & Eydie!), Say Darling, Freudiana, Poe... looking forward to hearing so much more!

Deep Dish Delicious! ,

Delicious!

A delightfully smart and quirky take on the shows which maybe didn't quite make it but leave a colorful legacy of delightful stories and songs. With humor, warmth and charisma, hosts Jen and Mikey bring you into their boudoir...parlor...pantry...wherever YOU feel most comfortable getting the dish!
