“Step Right Up” – The Fields of Ambrosia

Music: Martin Silvestri   Lyrics: Joel Higgins

A travelling executioner invites an audience of townspeople to step right up and admire his fancy electric chair in this number from a dark musical set in the U.S. in the early 1900’s.  It’s inappropriately entertaining considering the subject matter but an appropriate song to represent the day the governor of New York signed a bill to make it the first state to use the electric chair in 1888.
