Broadway: The American Musical

Genre: Soundtracks; Lead Performer: Various Artists; Status: In Season

Five discs, 90 years, 106 songs, and three appearances by Law & Order vet Jerry Orbach. That should give you an idea of the awesome expanse of Broadway: The American Musical, a companion to the recent six-part PBS miniseries. Selections range from standard (Cats’ hackneyed ”Memory”) to surprising (Nine’s sumptuous ”Bells of St. Sebastian”) to clever: Where else can you hear Fanny Brice and Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice?
