Sunday Sondheim: Carol Burnett and Ruthie Henshall sing "There’s Always a Woman."

 

 

Stephen Sondheim wrote this for Anyone Can Whistle. This song was cut from that Broadway production, which only lasted nine performances. It’s perfect for Putting It Together, though.  This excerpt, featuring Carol Burnett and Ruthie Henshall, is from the highly recommended Region 1 DVD "Putting It Together" of a live 1999 performance.

 

Fun YouTube comments:

what does Coq Au Vin mean?

It’d be something like: "Cock In Wine" – it’s a French Classic dish, basically it is an old cock with lots of red wine that simmers for hours in order to get the cock soft, but some say that the fact the cock is old makes it more flavorful.
Btw, I think the word joke with "coq/cock" also works in French, correct me if I’m wrong for those who speak French better than me. lol
Explaning it or not, the talent shown in this video is just contagious and hilarious! 😀 2 months ago

the joke does work in French, but more in an ‘asshole’ type of way not a sexual type joke
