MAD ABOUT MUSICALS
June 26, 2018  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 6:00 a.m. ET

 

Today’s lineup for TCM’s “Mad about Musicals” festival contains three movie musicals that, for varied reasons, touch on a few of my lifetime passions and favorite memories. At 5:30 p.m. ET, there’s 1962’s Gypsy, with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, whom I just interviewed on stage – a career highlight – for an event at Rutgers University. At 11 p.m. ET, there’s 1962’s The Music Man, with Robert Preston starring in a delightful widescreen version of one of the first musicals we produced and presented in my high school Performing Arts group at Nova. And at 1:45 a.m. ET, there’s 1964’s A Hard Day’s Night, showcasing this music group for which I have, by now, a lifelong fondness, The Beatles. And also today, late at night: 1963’s Bye Bye Birdie at 3:30 a.m. ET, followed at 5:30 a.m ET by 1967’s Camelot. Many memorable musicals – all from the 1960s.
