We’re gonna be honest: Things around the Broadway.com offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Broadway.com Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in!
WHY WE LOVE IT
This musical ode to relationships has it all: Sexual innuendos that make no sense, archaic ideas of what a woman should do to make a man happy, and of course, Jerry Orbach. The 1976 salute to Company on Mitzi: A Tribute to the American Housewife features a star-studded cast (yes, that’s Ted Knight from The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and some seriously weird ‘70s fashion. We’re still not sure which is worse—Jerry Orbach’s pointy orange collar or the party guest with the red evening gown and giant glasses.
LOOK OUT FOR...
1:54. News flash—in order to keep a man truly happy, a woman must be a princess in the parlor, a magician in the kitchen and a temptress in the bedroom...and then start rearranging the order. (Huh?!)
