Your showtune for October 25 is

“This Can’t Go On” – Anna Karenina

Music: Daniel Levine   Lyrics: Peter Kellog

Individuals caught up in a love triangle decide they can no longer bear their situation in this dramatic number from this musical version of Leo Tolstoy’s novel of the same name set in 1800’s Russia.  Russian citizens thought similarly about their circumstances over the years as the country experienced many revolutions, including the October Revolution which began on this day in 1917 (according to the Julian Calendar which was being used by Russia at the time).
