Mame And More On .... The Simpsons?
Last Sunday evening while I was stilling coming down from this, Fox season premiered "The Simpsons." Now ranking as American television's all-time longest running comedy series, "The Simpsons" is now in its 22nd season.
As arguably prime time television's premier satirists, the writers for "The Simpsons" used Sunday's episode to send up Broadway in one fell swoop, thanks to Lisa Simpson and her friends. Practically faster than you can say "Great White Way," Mame, Angels In America - Perestroika (yes, Perestroika specifically), Betty Comden, Elaine Stritch and Andrew Lloyd Webber are all conjured up in a few blissful moments that any Broadway fan should appreciate.
Is it just me, or are we starting to see a true renaissance of Broadway references included in the Hollywood-branded pop culture?
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
