Ament's view of Shirley Jones, mine of Jack Wild

Recommended Posts

Jack Wild was my only preteen/teen crush. I’m not sure why, but the others never appealed to me. (Well, David Cassidy came close—and he could actually sing.) I remember that I saw Jack Wild in a show at the Muny in St. Louis. (The Muny—Municipal Opera—is an outdoor venue like the Starlight in Kansas City that Dr. Ament mentions. We lived a few hours from KC and my grandparents lived in Illinois about 45 minutes from St Louis, so I saw shows at both venues every summer.) I even got his autograph on my program. The funny thing is, I don’t remember what show he was in. I do remember seeing William Daniels in 1776–so that’s another musical for this week.

Dr. Ament's remembrance of her road show with the man who started The New Christie Minstrels put me in mind of the mockumentary A Mighty Wind, which featured a similar group called The New Main Street Singers. I think Guest's film from 2003 could definitely be considered a musical.
