INTERMISSION - The Nate Patten and Cam Collins podcast #BookedIt - A Broadway Musician's Guide to Theatre, Facebook & Being #Grateful.  The show wickedly skewers online "humble-bragging" of all sorts. CONTENT WARNING - Nate's insights are funny, frank - and foul. He uses a lot of strong language. He's also a gifted interviewer, and the podcast features a series of wonderfully-spoken, interesting guests.  Due to adult language, this podcast is not for children! I enjoy it a lot, but usually wear headphones. Find #BookedIt on iTunes or Stitcher.

  • WEST SIDE STORY (1957) - Maria
  • PURLIE (1970) - Purlie
  • MAN OF LA MANCHA (1965) - Dulcinea
  • HELLO, DOLLY! (1964) - Finale

Here's that clip from THE PIRATE MOVIE that was stuck in my head when I was working on this episode. This one contains some oddball annotations from the person who posted it, but it's the best version I can find of the scene online:
