The Vacation Music Fest 2023

Since it’s now formally 12 days to Christmas, I figured what higher time to publish the music “Twelve Days to Christmas” from the 1963 musical, She Loves Me.  The present has a rating by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock, who (amongst their many exhibits) the subsequent 12 months wrote Fiddler on the Roof.

She Loves Me relies on the Hungarian play (and its subsequent Hollywood film, Store Across the Nook) which had been the muse of the film You have Obtained Mail.  If you happen to’ve seen any of these, this music comes close to the tip to point out the passage of time as Mr. Novak tries to construct up his relationship with Amelia Balish, with whom he had lengthy been sniping, however solely just lately found has been his pen pal with who he is in love.  Whereas on the album right here the music is simply a refrain quantity, on stage it is interwoven with snippets of that creating relationship.

I used to publish footage from the 1993 Roundabout Theatre Broadway revival that starred Judy Kuhn and Boyd Gaines, nevertheless that video does not appear to be obtainable anymore.  However — excellent news, I discovered a montage reel with six songs from that manufacturing, plus the curtain name, and it included “Twelve Days to Christmas”…so I edited it to get the music, finale and curtain name and may provide them right here.
