Leonard Bernstein: Pass the Football

This terrific remastered original cast recording from the 1953 rendition of Wonderful Town portrays Wreck, a guy who describes his fame and glory days as a student because of his ability to pass the ol’ pigskin. In this hilarious song, Wreck can’t spell, read, or write… but he introduced Albert Einstein, passed the bar exam, had every girl he could ever want, and got every scholarship… because he could pass that football!!

Bernstein had an amazing knack for capturing the humor of everyday life. The relatability of his characters make his theater works timelessly relevant.
