roo + show tune = match made in heaven
While my high school classmates were making out under the bleachers and unhooking bras, I was listening to the 1987 cast recording of “Anything Goes” starring Patti LuPone. One time in the past 25 years have I had a boyfriend during Valentine’s Day.
Every other year I have celebrated the Hallmark holiday with a card from my parents, a box of chocolate covered cherries (my weakness if any of you are interested in courting Roo) and a bevy of Broadway ballads.
As the new editor of Passport Magazine‘s Broadway Blog, I compiled some personal favorites and also reached out to some of my insider theatre peeps to get their recommendations.
Some are unconventional; others brought back memories of V-Days gone by. Check out some of my favorites and be sure to have some tissues on hand.
