MUSICAL THEATRE MELODIES - 7th June - "1776" - A tribute to Lewis Fiander

Rob Morrison's next "Musical Theatre Melodies" broadcast on Tuesday, 7th June at 9 p.m. will pay tribute to the late Lewis Fiander with the replay of a broadcast from 10th April, 2012 in which he was joined in the studio by Lewis who reminisced about his starring role as 'John Adams' in the 1970 London production of Sherman Edwards' 1776, (detailing the political intrigue behind the American revolutionary war of 1776 and the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence), and the subsequent Australian production for J.C. Williamsons in 1971.

The programme began with an introduction to the musical (via telephone) from New York-based theatre critic, Internet columnist and author - Peter Filichia, (who took the opportunity to interview Lewis about his casting in the West End production), and featured songs from the original 1970 London cast recording with Lewis Fiander, Bernard Lloyd, David Kernan, Ronald Radd, John Quentin, David Morton, Vivienne Ross and Cheryl Kennedy.
