I’ve always loved the Pete Allen/Carole Bayer Sager song, “I’d Rather Leave While I’m in Love.”
Rita Coolidge had something of a comeback with the tune in 1979 when she hit #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart.
My pal Kevin Spirtas shared this today and I had to hit repeat a few times.
I’ve written about Kevin on The Randy Report several times in the past.
While daytime fans know him from his years on Days of Our Lives as Dr. Craig Wesley, his most recent triumph was winning ‘Outstanding Lead Actor in a Digital Daytime Drama Series’ for his performance in After Forever. He also won for ‘Outstanding Writing for a Digital Daytime Series’ and the top prize, ‘Outstanding Digital Drama Series.’
The Broadway veteran (A Chorus Line, The Boy From Oz, Meet Me In St. Louis) also sings and dances, oh, just a bit LOL
Many folks may not know that Kevin was Hugh Jackman’s standby for the Broadway run of the Peter Allen bio-musical, The Boy From Oz.
You most probably don’t know that because Hugh never missed a performance, so Kevin never got the chance to step into his Peter Allen shoes. But trust and believe, he was ready.
This is just a taste of what audience MIGHT have gotten back then. Enjoy.
