Inspired by Jibber Jabber -- 1776

Jibber Jabber commented on Suzanne's blog and mentioned that 1776 is one of her favorite soundtracks.

it's on my hit list too. I'm a Broadway baby and majored in history in college. I own the DVD of the movie, starring William Daniels. and after seeing Brent Spiner in the Broadway revival, I bought the CD of the revival cast.

my ex husband -- all 5'4" of him -- played John Adams in his high school production.

Remember that old series, St. Elsewhere? Ed Flanders, Ed Begley Jr., William Daniels, Howie Mandel, Denzel Washington, Mark Harmon, among others. A lot of black comedy and inside jokes.

the series was set in Boston. In one story line, William Daniels' character, Dr. Mark Craig, visits Philadelphia (I think his character was supposed to have gone to medical school there). And during that episode, he sings one line:

"It's hot as hell in Philadelphia!"

when I saw that show on TV, I almost lost it!

I remember William Daniel's line too. I definitely appreciated the reference to the ultimate musical 1776.
