Overlooked Gems & Big Guns of Broadway Edition!

Elaine celebrates some of the lesser known show tunes of the golden age of Broadway - and she'll alternate them with some of the big hits of the same era.

In a special themed programme, Elaine celebrates some of the lesser known, lesser played, but still spectacular show tunes of the golden age of the Great White Way...

These are the musicals - and the songs - that paved the way for the blockbusters of today, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the theatre we have here & now in the 21st century...

And she'll alternate these more conspicuous songs with some of the big hits of the same era that we know so well....

It's Elaine's Overlooked Gems & Big Guns of Broadway Edition!
