"I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy..."

A friend of mine is working on the new Tommy Tune musical, Turn of the Century, at the Goodman Theatre.

And he has stories. Wonderful stories.

Well, stories that are wonderful to a musical theatre fag learning about the ins and outs of a musical being positioned with hopes for a Broadway transfer.

And while this clip that my friend sent me has absolutely nothing to do with Turn of the Century, it does have Tommy Tune, the contestants of the 1986 Miss USA Pageant, that chick who played Bob Newhart's wife on Newhart and the following lyric...

"Yankee Doodle came tonight just to do some tappin'!"

Yeah.

Please to enjoy...
