This is a rarely, if ever, seen clip from the Broadway musical Applause, of Tony Award winning star Lauren Bacall singing "But Alive," which takes place in a Greenwich Village New York gay bar. It's very 70s, and truly a classic. Just seeing Bacall play the gay diva and sing and get flipped and flung around by the guys is worth the price alone. The quality of the video is okay, but I got it from someone who copied me a video of the entire show, which had been filmed for TV two years after it opened on Broadway. That special only aired once on network TV and has never been seen again. This is just pure fun, especially if you love stuff like this

Love, love love it! Now how do I get my hands on a complete copy of the show? I gotta have it!

Funny, I just got finished re-watching the "Wigstock" DVD, and Lypsinka's performance of this number was absolutely spectacular. So much so, that I downloaded the track by Lauren Bacall. Hmmm... Maybe I should start blogging again.

Look out Bunny! :-)
