I have long enjoyed this great old song which originally appeared in a somewhat forgotten review called Two on the Aisle (1951) which starred the great Bert Lahr and the sultry Dolores Gray. Music is by Jule Styne and the clever lyrics are by good ol' Betty Comden and Adolph Green.

I'm not a huge fan of Kristen Chenoweth. She's got an amazing voice, but all the cutesy-poo business has grown tiresome of late. I'm posting her rendition of this wonderful song largely because the staging is just so incredibly amusing. Her victim/husband is an awesome mime.

We have Chenoweths in the family tree. Mr. Fikink claims Kristen is a cousin of some sort.
Thoroughly enjoyed her!

Ms. Chenoweth was perfect for her "Wicked" character. But I also have been somewhat annoyed by almost every other thing I've seen her do. She seems to be doing all right without me in her fan club. Good for her.
