“Rise Up” – Leap of Faith

Music: Alan Menken   Lyrics: Glenn Slater

This lively anthem opens both acts of this spirited musical about a con man a la Harold Hill who happens to sell miracles instead of instruments.  Written by the composer of such animated hits as Aladdin, Pocahontas, and Hercules, it’s hard to believe this show flopped on Broadway.  Nonetheless, the sun has risen on a new day, and it’s time to rise up and meet the day head on.
