BERNSTEIN ON BROADWAY
Developed by Michael Barrett and Jamie Bernstein
Written by Jamie Bernstein
After many, many travails, our heroine, Cunegonde, has become an expensive courtesan in Paris. As she laments her sordid circumstances, she suddenly remembers her dear Dr. Pangloss’s theory of optimism: that all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds – that’s right: even war, disease and deadly earthquakes! So Cunegonde scolds herself to look on the bright side –that being, of course, the cascades of jewels ornamenting her from head to toe. Here is “Glitter and be Gay” – Broadway’s very own ode to bling.
