The Broadway Performance I Wish I’d Seen: Angela Lansbury and Beatrice Arthur as Mame and Vera!

Every theater fan has a Broadway performance they wish with all their heart they could have seen live.

If I hadn’t been five years old in 1966 and too young to go to Broadway in Kindergarten, mine would have been the Angela Lansbury original Broadway production of Jerry Herman’s MAME.

In particular, I would have loved to see Angela and Beatrice Arthur perform this little gem on the stage: “Bosom Buddies.”  We’re all very lucky that they performed it two decades later on the Tony Awards and it was preserved. Still, to have seen this on the stage when the show first premiered certainly would have been wonderful.  Take a look and enjoy!
