Shakespeare On Broadway
In 1996, producer Bruce Kimmel put together a really fun album of songs from Broadway musicals based on Shakespeare. Some of the songs on the album are performed just as they were in their original contexts, others are given new arrangements. For “Tonight” from West Side Story, the arrangement not wildly dissimilar to that from the Broadway show, but Arthur Laurents’s dialogue is replaced with Shakespeare’s. What do you think?
