Das Musical als Hörspiel in ´´8cht Streichen´´ - sehr frei nach Wilhelm Busch. Was ist anders...?Diese Hörspiel/Musical-Fassung des Wilhelm-Busch-Klassikers verzichtet auf die gewaltvollen Szenen des Originals. Zu Beginn des Stückes erklären Wilhelm ´´Willi´´ Busch und ´´Walli´´ Busch (seine Frau) den Zuschauern, dass ´´Willi´´ HEUTE wohl Einiges anders geschrieben hätte... Er wird sich also im Laufe der Handlung in die Inszenierung einmischen und an den Stellen, an denen das Original Grausames vorsieht, Alternativen suchen. Das größte Problem besteht jedoch darin, dass sich die Akteure nur bedingt an die Inszenierung halten, und sich das Ganze mehr und mehr verselbständigt. Es bleibt zwar dabei, dass Max und Moritz ihre Streiche - fast wie im Original - vorbereiten, aber ´´hineinfallen´´ werden Sie selber, getreu dem Motto ´´wer Andern eine Grube gräbt...´´ Nun werden die beiden am Ende auch noch erwischt, was zu einer großen Gerichtsverhandlung im ´´8chten Streich´´ führt... aber natürlich mit ´´Happy End´´. ´´Willi´´ und ´´Walli´´ Busch übernehmen neben ihren Hauptrollen die Charaktere der Witwe Bolte, Lehrer Lämpel usw. selbst, da Walli, etwas eigenmächtig, das ursprüngliche Wilhelm-Busch-Buch geändert hat. 1.

In 1975, the Broadway musical Chicago brought together a host of memes and myths - the gleefully subversive character of American musical comedy, the reckless glamour of the big-city newspaper, the mad decade of the 1920s, the work of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, and the Wild West gangsterville that was the city of Chicago itself. The tale of a young woman who murders her departing lover and then tricks the jury into letting her off, Chicago seemed too blunt and cynical at first. Everyone agreed it was show biz at its brilliant best, yet the public still preferred A Chorus Line, with its cast of innocents and sentimental feeling. Nevertheless, the 1996 Chicago revival is now the longest-running American musical in history. As author Ethan Mordden looks back at Chicago´s various moving parts - including the original 1926 play that started it all, a sexy silent film directed by Cecil B. DeMille, a talkie remake with Ginger Rogers, the musical itself, and at last the movie of the musical - we learn how the American theater serves as a kind of alternative news medium, a town crier warning the public about the racy, devious interior contradictions of American society. Opinionated, witty, and rich in backstage anecdotes, All That Jazz brings the American musical to life in all its artistry and excitement. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joel Froomkin.

Inspired by the Hank Williams and Leadbelly recordings he heard as a teenager growing up outside of Boston, Jim Rooney began a musical journey that intersected with some of the biggest names in American music, including Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Bill Monroe, Muddy Waters, and Alison Krauss. In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey is Rooney´s kaleidoscopic firsthand account of more than five decades of success as a performer, concert promoter, songwriter, music publisher, engineer, and record producer. As witness to and participant in over half a century of music history, Rooney provides a sophisticated window into American vernacular music. Following his stint as a Hayloft Jamboree hillbilly singer in the mid-1950s, Rooney managed Cambridge´s Club 47, a catalyst of the ´60s folk music boom. He soon moved to the Newport Folk Festival as talent coordinator and director, where he had a front-row seat to Dylan ´´going electric´´. In the 1970s, Rooney´s odyssey continued in Nashville, where he began engineering and producing records. His work helped alternative country music gain a foothold in Music City and culminated in Grammy nominations for singer-songwriters John Prine, Iris Dement, and Nanci Griffith. Later in his career, he was a key link connecting Nashville to Ireland´s folk music scene. Whether he´s writing songs or writing his memoir, Jim Rooney is the consummate storyteller. In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey is his singular chronicle from the heart of Americana. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Rooney.

Before The Beatles landed on American shores in February 1964, only two British acts had topped the Billboard singles chart. In the first quarter of 1964, however, the Beatles alone accounted for 60% of all recorded music sold in the United States; in 1964 and 1965 British acts occupied the number one position for 52 of the 104 weeks; and from 1964 through to 1970, the Rolling Stones, Herman´s Hermits, the Dave Clark Five, the Animals, the Kinks, the Hollies, the Yardbirds, and the Who placed more than 130 songs on the American Top Forty. Simon Philo illustrates how this remarkable event in cultural history disrupted and even reversed pop culture´s flow of influence, goods, and ideas - orchestrating a dramatic turn-around in the commercial fortunes of British pop in North America that turned the 1960s into "The Sixties". Focusing on key works and performers, The British Invasion tracks the journey of this musical phenomenon from peripheral irrelevance through exotic novelty into the heart of mainstream rock. Throughout, Philo explores how and why British music from the period came to achieve such unprecedented heights of commercial, artistic, and cultural dominance. The British Invasion: The Crosscurrents of Musical Influence will appeal to fans, students, and scholars of popular music history - indeed anyone interested in understanding the fascinating relationship between popular music and culture. The book is published by Rowman & Littlefield. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John N Gully. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/088620/bk_acx0_088620_sample.mp3.

Key Changes is a highly entertaining, frank and personal account of the highs and lows of show business, from post-war Twice Nightly Variety to the present day by renowned composer and performer, Denis King. Known as a brilliant anecdotalist, King himself reads his memoirs which are funny, poignant and eye-opening; he also illustrates them with his own piano-playing and personal sound archive. In the 1950s and early 1960s King was a member of Britain´s first-ever boy band, The King Brothers. Since then he has composed over 200 TV themes, including ITV´s award-winning The Adventures of Black Beauty, and has collaborated with numerous theatre legends to write more than 25 stage musicals - Privates on Parade among them. His career has encompassed every aspect of show business, performing to producing and composing; and he has experienced success alongside disaster and betrayal. The artists with whom King has worked read like a Who´s Who of British and American stage and screen: Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Tony Bennett, Nina Simone, Howard Keel, Sammy Cahn, Albert Finney, Dame Edna Everage, Maureen Lipman, Elaine Stritch, Julia McKenzie, Dudley Moore, Jimi Hendrix, Ronnie Corbett, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland... and many more. Key Changes is not just a potted history or a lengthy name-drop. It is a funny, intimate portrait of the grind as well as the glamour in what many outside the entertainment industry assume is a charmed way to earn a living. And indeed, according to King, it often is. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Denis King. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/040731/bk_acx0_040731_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
