"Broadway Scene Stealers - The Women" features several heavy vocal hitters, first and foremost Barbra Streisand, who sings her breakout hit "Miss Marmelstein" from 1962's I Can Get It for You Wholesale. This was the prelude to a brilliant career that skyrocketed two years later when she landed the part of Fanny Brice in Funny Girl.
There's also Betty Buckley, who first came to prominence in 1776, a musical with an unusual subject: the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This show was dominated by men, but the twenty-two-year old, pre-Cats Buckley, playing the love-struck Martha Jefferson, came through with a great personal success in the charming ballad "He Plays the Violin."
There are several other Tony-winning performances represented in Broadway Scene Stealers, including Dorothy Loudon ("Little Girls" from Annie); Nell Carter ("Get Some Trash for Your Cash" from the 1978 Fats Waller revue Ain't Misbehavin") and many more.
