If your voice has ‘I don’t want to go’ in it,
Say goodbye with a little hello in it.

Can you tell me anything about "Miss Spectacular?" What exactly is going on there?

To be perfectly honest, I do not know much about it. I know Jerry Herman wrote the concept album and was looking at a run in Vegas if the stars aligned. He never envisioned it for a Broadway run, as far as my own knowledge goes. Other than that it’s mostly been left alone and there’s been little interest lately to produce it further. Shame.
