Tony Clip 6: Golden Rainbow (1968)

For sheer 1960s Broadway razzmatazz, it's hard to beat this Tony number from the Las Vegas musical Golden Rainbow

If you like your musical numbers big, showy, silly and glitzy, then you've hit the jackpot, friends: They don't get much bigger, showier, sillier and glitzier than this Las Vegas–themed blowout from Golden Rainbow, a vehicle for married pop stars Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé that ran for nearly a year on Broadway in 1968.

Other than Steve and Eydie themselves—whose record label forbade them from appearing on the telecast—this Tony number has it all: Slot machines! Tambourines! Fake jazz trumpeters in tight green shirts! A showgirl on a flying cutout of a horse! A dead ringer for Chris Kattan's Mango! An interlude of hand clapping! Future A Chorus Line Tony winner and Gilmore Girls granny Carole Bishop working a long white boa! A strong contender for the gayest four-man stage cross of all time (2:42)! And, as a button, a final shout-out of the title of the show, in case you might have missed it: "Golden Rainbow!!!"

Watch it in full below. You're welcome.
