In celebration of Stephen Sondheim's birthday, I posted the 1986-1987 demo to "Boom Crunch!" to Tumblr, and forgot to post it anywhere else. (Thanks, Mrkiplurrrrr.) So here it is! This song was later replaced by "The Last Midnight." (Once I've been able to extract it from my DVD, a demo sync will be posted using footage from the 1986 San Diego try-out.)

Lyrics / Transcript wrote:Shhh… Shhh…

Told your little lies, did you?
Naughty naughty, now boom crunch!
Time we all said our goodbyes, don’t you think?
Pretty soon, boom crunch!

Bit too high a price, is it?
But you got your wish.
Shouldn’t happen if you’re nice, should it?
Now broom crunch, squish!

Got your hearts’ desires
Liars, liars liars liars
Little lies for a little liars
What harm is that?

Fool the prince, break a vow,
Grab a bag of gold, get your cow
Doesn’t matter how?
Anyway, it doesn’t matter now
'Cause any minute
Boom, splat, smashed flat!

Time to call a halt, is it?
Too late now, boom crunch!
Want to know who’s fault? Everybody’s!
Here she comes! Just a cloud.

Fooled them at the ball, did you?
And you got your prince.
Selfish little liars, fools, all of you
Oh well, soon, mincemeat.

Just a small upheaval
Evil, evil evil evil
Want to know what’s evil?
Nice peoples lies!

Well goodbye,
You could use a good witch now
But why?
You don’t want me around.
I’m just crushed.
You’re just crushed.
I’m just going.

No one likes a witch
Which is why I don’t have to lie
I’m unpleasant!
No one likes a witch
But you all need someone to curse!

Well goodbye, get another witch
For whatever’s left of the present
Just keep getting better at making things worse
Letting lie led to lie
Led to cheat a little
Led to steal a little
Led to kill a little
Led to —
Boom! Rumble rumble! Mustn’t grumble!

Interested in beans, are you?
Have the whole damn bunch!
There you are!
Lots of magic beans
Here, you want some more?
Get them by the score
But get them quick before…

Uh oh, listen to the roar. BOOM!
Uh oh, bye everybody. BOOM!
Isn’t it a shame?
Who’re you gonna blame this time?
Isn’t quite the same this time?
This time it’s buh buh
Boom, bam, thump,
Crackle, roar, slap,
Bam, boom, crunch!

Tomorrow, I return from my winter break. As a preview of what’s to come, here is Ellen Foley performing “The Witch’s Rap” from the 1986 world premiere production of Into the Woods at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, California, with the song’s original lyrics.

And here's the cover I quickly threw together for the post that I love. (Though I think I'll go back and change it a little.) ... 4977153710

NARRATOR: Because the baker had lost his mother at birth and his father in a baking accident, he was eager to have a family of his own, and concerned that all efforts until now had failed.
*knock knock knock*
BAKER: Who might that be?
WIFE: We have sold our last loaf of bread.
BAKER: It’s the witch from next door!
BOTH: We have no bread!
WITCH: Well, of course you have no bread.
BAKER: Then what do you wish?
WITCH: Oh, it’s not what I wish. It’s what you wish. Nothing cooking in there now, is there?
NARRATOR: The old enchantress went on to tell the couple that she had placed a spell on their house.
BAKER: What spell?
WITCH: In the past, your father brought his new bride to this cottage. Oh, they were a handsome couple. But they were not handsome neighbors! You see, your mother was with child and she developed an unusual appetite. She took one look at my beautiful garden and told your father that what she wanted more than anything in the world was

Greens, greens, she’d only eat greens
Parsley, watercress, cabbages, and lettuce
He said “alright,” but it wasn’t quite
Cause I caught him in the autumn in my garden one night!

He was robbing me, rapping me!
Rooting through my rutabag,
Raiding my arugula
And ripping up the rampion
And my champion and my favorite!
I should’ve laid a spell on him right there.

Could’ve turned him into stone or a table or a chair.

But I let him have the baby, she was fine and fat.
Then I said “Fair’s fair,” I said “Tit for tat!
"Since you took a little rampion, I’ll take a little brat!"
And I did just that.

BAKER: I had a sister!
NARRATOR: The young man was incredulous at this news, but the Which refused to tell him any more of his sister. She went on.
WITCH: You’d think they would have learned their lesson! But no. Your mother no sooner was carrying you that she developed another strange hunger. This time, she told your father that what she wanted, what she wished, what she craved was

Beans, beans, now it was beans!
Red beans, green beans, and all the in between beans!
Wax beans, dry beans — Soon she’s eyeing my beans!
Now then, at the count of ten,
Till I spot him in the bottom of my garden again!

I said “Stealing my beans?
"Now you know what that means!"
"Oh, don’t take away the baby!"
"Alright," I said.
I didn’t want another brat anyway.

But my magic beans? That I did resent,
And I meant to prevent any further incidents.
So I sought to, at the minute you arrived, she went.
And I laid a little spell on you.

Sorry son, but your family tree is gonna be a barren one.

Now there’s no more fuss and there’s no more scenes,
And my garden thrives— You should see my nectarines!
But I’m telling you the same I tell kings and queens,
Don’t ever never ever mess around with my greens!
Especially the beans!

You know, I'm getting real sick and tired of stuff getting uploaded and not being able to download it. Here's Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman on American Songbook at NJPAC, discussing their musical songwriting career together and singing a few songs. They are joined by Marilyn Maye, Micailah Lockhart, Alex Stone and Annie Golden, the actress / singer who sang the original demo to "Good Morning, Baltimore." ... t-wittman/

I was bored so I made another video to test out whether I could use the back-facing camera on my phone. I can, but my lord do I need to get a tripod.

Inspired by Uncle Sporkums’ reenactments, and my new found love of Psycho, I decided to film Mother’s Monologue as a way to test my acting. I have no idea if I succeeded, but it didn’t turn out too bad I think.

77 years ago, Judy Garland recorded the as-of-yet unheard I-want song for MGM's adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. In celebration, I decided to release my unfinished recording sync of the released, unused takes.
