There's a Parade in Town is a song that was written because Angela Lansbury demanded it. Sometimes it can be hard to think about Angela Lansbury as a diva, especially if you've seen interviews with her and can see how gracious she normally is. In this episode Jonathan Chisolm helps Kyle to square those two sides of her personality.

What is Putting It Together?
This is a podcast about Stephen Sondheim's entire body of work show by show and song by song. Each week Kyle Marshall invites an expert to discuss a Sondheim song in-depth. Together they discover the humour, how the songs inform character, and any hidden meanings. Most importantly they try to understand the man behind the music, the Shakespeare of our time, as best they can.
