Fabulous Friday: "The Boy From..."

August 30, 2019

Our Linda Lavin moment on Wednesday prompted me to feature a song she introduced in an off Broadway show from 1966, *The Mad Show.*  The song is "The Boy From...," music by Mary Rodgers (daughter of Richard Rodgers), lyrics by...  I'll let wikipedia finish that sentence:


The lyrics of "The Boy From...", a parody of "The Girl from Ipanema", were semi-anonymously written by Stephen Sondheim. The official songwriting credit went to the linguistically minded pseudonym "Esteban Rio Nido", which translates from the German, via Spanish, to "Stephen River Nest". In the show's playbill, the lyrics were credited to "Nom de Plume".
