The Mad Show
The brainchild of Larry Siegel and Stan Hart, a genuinely hysterical revue based on Mad Magazine opened innocuously at the off-Broadway Theatre de Lys in January 1966. Mary Rodgers, daughter of composer Richard Rodgers, wrote the music; and several lyricists created the words, including one Esteban Rio Nido, a nom de plume for Stephen Sondheim, whose one contribution, “The Boy From…,” was a parody of the popular hit “The Girl From Ipanema,” delivered with a straight face by Linda Lavin. Also in the cast were JoAnn Worley, known for her antics on TV in Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, and Paul Sand. The Mad Show had a run of 871 performances. First LP release: January 24, 1966.
