Welcome to a new Musical Theatre Monday! In this month’s entry, I’m sharing a rare audio recording — songs only — of the live March 05, 1951 TV broadcast of the Vincent Youmans musical No, No, Nanette (1925), which was first covered here back in 2014. This production aired just once on NBC’s Musical Comedy Time and featured Jackie Gleason, Ann Crowley, Ruth Ford, Ruth Matteson, Nina Olivette, and Danny Scholl. Songs include: “Flappers Are We,” “I’ve Confessed To The Breeze,” “I Want To Be Happy,” “No, No, Nanette,” “Peach On The Beach,” “Tea For Two,” and “For One You Love.”
Musical Comedy Time: No, No, Nanette (03/05/51, NBC)
Come back on the third Monday of next month for a new Musical Theatre post! And tune in tomorrow for a new Sitcom Tuesday!
