Alive and Kicking (musical)

Alive and Kicking (musical)

"Alive and Kicking" is a musical revue with sketches by Ray Golden, I.A.L. Diamond, Henry Morgan, Jerome Chodorov, Joseph Stein, Will Glickman, and Michael Stuart; music by Hal Borne, Irma Jurist, Sammy Fain, Hoagy Carmichael, Harold Rome, Sonny Burke, Leo Schumer, and Ray Golden; and lyrics by Paul Francis Webster, Ray Golden, Harold J. Rome, Leonard Gershe, Sid Kuller, and Michael Stuart.

The Broadway production was directed by Robert H. Gordon and choreographed by Jack Cole. After a pre-Broadway tryout at the Shubert Theatre in Boston in December 1949, the production opened at the Winter Garden Theatre on January 17 1950 and ran for 46 performances. The cast included David Burns, Jack Cassidy, Jack Gilford, Carl Reiner, Bobby Van, and Gwen Verdon, making her New York stage debut; she also served as Jack Cole's assistant choreographer. [ Information about the show from "The Bob Riff Story".] ]

"Ziegfeld Follies"-style musical reviews were still popular in 1950, but soon afterwards, the introduction of variety shows on television made the theatrical revue almost obsolete. One dance from the revue was called "The Reason for Divorce is Marriage."
