  1. Thank you!!! My father brought home “A Jolly Theatrical Season” for me when I was 9. I loved it and lost it long ago. Had no idea it had been released on CD. I loved your conversation about it. I seem to remember a mention of “Nowhere to Go But Up” as well. The only song I know from that show that featured both my beloveds Tom Bosley & Dorothy Loudon is “Just an Honest Mistake.” I only know the song thanks to “A Jolly Theatrical Season.” I can’t wait to listen to the songs now that I’m way past 9 years old and will get the references.
