Me, Kate – Best of Broadway Musicals

Swinging Classics: Since the start of the 20th century, New York’s Broadway has been the hub where musicals are concerned. The 1940s saw musicals like Kiss Me Kate and Annie Get Your Gun score legendary successes; songs like “Night and Day” are unforgettable evergreens. Brought together here are 20 of the loveliest songs from great musicals by songwriting legends George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin – bursting with irresistible groove and infectious swing.
