The musical Rachael Lily Rosenbloom...and don’t you ever forget it!, which closed after seven previews on Broadway on December 1, 1973, received a special tribute concert March 13 at Feinstein’s/54Below nightclub in Manhattan.
With music by Paul Jabara and book by Jabara and Tom Eyen (Dreamgirls), the musical, which was a tribute to the career of Barbra Streisand, charts the rise of singer Rachael Lily, whose first name picked up the “a” dropped from Streisand’s first name.
