“Everybody Wants To Do a Musical” – Nick & Nora

Music: Charles Strouse   Lyrics: Richard Maltby, Jr.

This comedic number is from a show about the celebrated detective duo/married couple Nick and Nora Charles created by author Dashiell Hammett who have appeared in various films, radio programs, and plays throughout the years.  Unfortunately, the musical had a very short run after a very lengthy, record-making preview period.  Its record was finally beat by the musical Spiderman Turn Off the Dark which opened on this day in 2011 after fifteen weeks of previews and multiple injuries, proving just about everybody wants to do a musical.
