Getting Away with Murder

On the Twentieth Century

"The prince of wheels" makes its sonic journey from Chi to NY to Broadway to Main Street:  all aboard!  This much-beloved (by me) masterpiece by Cy Coleman and Comden and Green gets the luxury treatment, in order to celebrate its current revival.  The original cast album with Madeline Kahn and John Cullum gets an earlful, along with cameos by Kristin Chenoweth, Peter Gallagher, and John Barrymore.
