Did you know that the last score Cole Porter wrote was for a 1958 musical created for television?!
Music in television goes far beyond memorable theme songs, with such original musicals as Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Stephen Sondheim’s Evening Primrose, Cole Porter’s Aladdin, and others written expressly for the small screen. Original songs were created for special events (“Love and Marriage” for a television version of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town), for variety shows featuring popular singers, and more. Created by co-artistic directors Rob Berman and Chase Brock, and hosted by television’s own Mo Rocca of CBS Sunday Morning, this entertaining look at the role of music in television won’t be available in re-runs—see it “Live and in Living Color!”
