Michael Feinstein's American Songbook: Show Tunes
Friday, April 5 at 9:00 p.m.
Stephen Sondheim, Angela Lansbury and Christine Ebersole appear in in the first episode of season three. Tonight, Feinstein and his guests focus on great American musicals.
Sondheim reveals the composers he most admires and shows Feinstein some rare home movie footage of the original Broadway production of the classic "Follies." Tony Award-winner Ebersole gives a tour de force performance of some of the greatest show tunes of all time, and Lansbury reflects on her Broadway career, from "Mame" to "Sweeney Todd" and more. (Michael also has a surprise for Angela.) Feinstein discusses his personal relationship with Ira Gershwin and performs the classic “Lullaby of Broadway” and “Let Me Entertain You.”
