Hey, It's A Broadway & Me CD Giveaway

This past weekend's medical emergency is over and my hand is better 
but I’m still going to take it a bit easy (I’ve even canceled cooking Thanksgiving dinner; my always-wonderful husband K is taking me out instead). And so in lieu of pecking out a full post, I’m going to do a giveaway of a CD that might make a great stocking stuffer for the theater lover on your holiday gift list.

It's the album “Sing You to Sleep” by Anika Larsen, who is currently appearing as songwriter Cynthia Weil in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.  Jessie Mueller has gotten deserved praise (plus a Tony) for portraying King but Larsen is equally terrific as the feistier Weil, who with her husband Barry Mann wrote a string of memorable songs from the Righteous Brothers' “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” to Dolly Parton’s “Here You Come Again.”  
The songs on Larsen’s debut album, which include a duet by Larsen and Mueller, range from George Gershwin to Bruno Mars with all kinds of interesting stops along the way. You can win a personally autographed copy by naming the show biz anthem that Larsen’s character Cynthia Weil and her husband wrote (hint: it’s sung in the show) and sending the answer to me (click the following blurry blue link for the address: by midnight on Monday, Dec. 1.

As usual,  I’ll put all the right answers in a hat and have K pluck one out. Then I’ll announce the lucky winner next Wednesday

In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving.
