One tender number made tears roll down my cheek. The song "Some Other Time" was not used in the film but it's gone on to become popular with jazz artists. I've listened to that song since I was in middle school. In my adult years, I met someone and fell in love in New York City. And he fell in love with me. That was in 1992. He passed away 18 months later in 1994. I've been solo ever since. I know that my married friends are impressed with the TV career I've had. But watching them hold hands during the show...I would've traded a national TV appearance or two to have someone who wanted to hold my hand again. I thought about my late partner during "Some Other Time." Funny how things take on a new meaning the older you get. Here's Blossom Dearie singing that song with lyrics by Comden & Green. In the play, it's sung by the ladies and the sailors as the 24 hours shore leave come to an end.
This show is great entertainment. It was Tony nominee for Best Revival.
