Better Than Breakfast With The Arts


It's Tuesday, it's July, and it's time for a break from everything. Take some time for Breakfast with the Arts. Enjoy a Banana Crunch Muffin courtesy of The Barefoot Contessa or Paula Deen's Oven-Baked Dutch Apple Pancake, take a tatse of Europe in a cup of freshly brewed Gevalia Breakfast Blend with cream and sugar to taste, and prepare for some videos that are better than Breakfast With The Arts.

We at Thespis Journal are hoping that all of you will enjoy these rare videos with your morning coffee. It's time to take time for the arts. Breathe in that fresh, cool air from you air-conditioning source of choice, relax and refresh in these historic videos.
Leontyne Price sings a glorious "What I Did For Love" from A Chorus Line in a rarely seen performance from 1980. This is truly thrilling.
Dolly Parton and Broadway's Christine Ebersole perform Sittin' On the Front Porch Swing from Dolly's TV Show in 1987. Anyone remember this show?
"Till We Reach That Day" from the Original Broadway Cast. This is a moving, chilling, earth-quaking moment in Broadway History. Enjoy! WOW!

How About The 2001 DreamGirls One-Night-Only concert Act II Opening-You'll love it.

You have to see "My Body Is My Business" from the 1997 Tony Awards. This number from THE LIFE gives me chills just remembering seeing it in the theater three times. Lillias White, Sharon Wilkins and the girls shook the house down! Cy Coleman is a genius!!
This is a must see: Speaking of Lillias White, she sings the definative "I Am Changing" from DreamGirls at the 2001 Benefit Concert at the Ford Center. You Go Girl!

Idina performs "The Wizard and I" This will send you off into a great day!
