“I Don’t Want to Know” – Dear World

Music and Lyrics: Jerry Herman

Martita Hunt won a Tony Award for playing Countess Aurelia in The Madwoman of Chaillot on this day in 1949.  Twenty years later, Angela Lansbury took home a Tony for playing the same role in this musical version of the play.  In this number, the eccentric countess expresses a fervent desire to live in her own little dream and remain willfully ignorant of life’s troubles.
