Broadway at Pops

Broadway's Best at PopsI just watched this new compilation over the weekend.  It’s an anthology of Broadway stars doing theatrical material that had been televised in Boston Pops concerts over the years. 

It really is thrilling to see old video footage of Ethel Merman and Ben Vereen.  And it’s amazing how many video clips there are of Barbara Cook doing Losing My Mind. And I wonder if theater-lovers 30 years from now will thrill to the clips of Kristen Chenowith doing Glitter and Be Gay or Audra McDonald doing Mr. Snow with the same revereance and nostalgia?
