Musicals Monday

Hello Dolly is one of my favorite musicals.  Barbara Streisand can do no wrong! 

A matchmaker named Dolly Levi takes a trip to Yonkers, New York to see the "well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire," Horace Vandergelder. While there, she convinces him, his two stock clerks and his niece and her beau to go to New York City. In New York, she fixes Vandergelder's clerks up with the woman Vandergelder had been courting, and her shop assistant (Dolly has designs of her own on Mr. Vandergelder, you see).

The clip you're about to see is the song Put On Your Sunday Clothes.  Featuring a very young Michael Crawford (the tall, lanky stock clerk), better known as the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Phantom Of The Opera, some people may also recognize this clip from the Disney/Pixar movie Wall-E.  Whenever Brandon hears this song, he thinks that movie is on!

Have a wonderful last Monday of 2010!
