Beating the heat with WeillHumour
If you’re currently in Toronto, you know the heat is pretty awful indeed. So, the train of thought went thus: ugh, it’s hot…“Ain’t it awful, the heat?”…Man, Street Scene is so great. Why don’t people do it more?…Ice Cream Sextet!
Here’s a clip from A Salute to American Music: A Richard Tucker Foundation Gala, 1992. Jerry Hadley is the Italiam immigrant ice-cream lover, Lippo Fiorentino, singing the Ice Cream Sextet from Kurt Weill’s Street Scene. Hadley sings with Maureen O’Flynn, Phyllis Pancella, Paul Groves, Daniel Smith & Jeff Mattsey.
Stay cool, readers!
