“Cross the Line” – Big
Music: David Shire Lyrics: Richard Maltby, Jr.
Twelve-year-old turned magically into an adult Josh crosses several lines in this song when he teaches his coworkers at a toy company how to relate to kids through dance. The leading man/child delivers the engaging number with aplomb and is soon joined by the rest of the cast in this musical based on the film of the same name. In a less dance-y and more serious way, an American named Joe Dresnok defected to North Korea on this day in 1962, the details of which are covered in a documentary film of his life called Crossing the Line.
