On Twitter, we asked our members, “What rhyme do you admire from a musical theatre lyric?” Here’s what they said:
…I’ll get Leontyne Price to sing her
Medley from “Meistersinger”
And Margot Fonteyn to dance
Won’t it be perfectly swell?
– “Bobby and Jackie and Jack” from Merrily We Roll Along, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
