Show Tunes with Kate Botello - Episode 16

Mar 20, 2016

FORBIDDEN BROADWAY thumbs its nose at LES MISERABLES in tonight's Intermission.

Welcome to Episode 16 of Show Tunes with Kate Botello! This week: spring is here - at least according to clocks and official types. And nobody gets the whole spring thing better than Rodgers and Hammerstein...or Rodgers and Hart!
