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
Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett make an adorable duo in this oh-so-campy 1971 Lincoln Center concert. They start off strong with a selection of Beatles songs including “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “With a Little Help From My Friends.” Halfway through, they start to get a little weird, throwing the Sesame Street theme song, “Age of Aquarius” and “Son of a Preacher Man” in there. Ladies, you can sing anything you want, but Ms. Andrews, we do not believe for one second that you get high with a little help from your friends.
LOOK OUT FOR...
11:55, when Andrews and Burnett give up on the medley and have a “Strangers in the Night” sob session instead.
