ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Littlest Revue played Off-Broadway in 1956. The revue featured a young, then unknown Joel Grey, Larry Storch, and Charlotte Rae, as well as Tammy Grimes making her Off-Broadway debut. Contributing lyricists and composers included Vernon Duke, John LaTouche, Ogden Nash, Sheldon Harnick, Charles Strouse, Lee Adams and several others. Particularly memorable was a snappy number by Sammy Cahn and Vernon Duke, called "Good Little Girls," performed by flame-haired newcomer Beverly Bozeman, this song had originally been written for Bette Davis in a 1952 musical revue, "Two's Company." Resurrecting unused and forgotten songs by major songwriters eventually became a hallmark of (the producer) Ben Bagley's shows and recordings. The Littlest Revue closed after only 32 performances, possibly because its venue, the Phoenix Theatre at 2nd Avenue and 12th Street (the show features a number called "2nd Avenue & 12th Street Rag") was too inaccessible for the casual theatergoer. Critics noted the revue's pleasant songs but also remarked upon its dull, overlong sketches. (Thankfully the sketches did not make it to this terrific cast recording!)
