Happy Birthday, Neva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                               Today is also the birthday of Neva Small, who was a Child Broadway Goddess, especially when she sang the legendary "I Wonder How It Is," from "Henry, Sweet Henry."  That was 49 years ago, and Neva is now 64.  Time is catching up; 64 was the age my mother passed on, and tomorrow I turn 62, just two years away from that apocryphal year.

                                 Neva is still out there, but she never became the star she should have.  If only Bob Merrill's musical, "The Prince Of Grand Street" had made it to Broadway, Neva would have become a major star!

                                   But to us Theater Queens, she IS a star!  So, Happy Birthday, and many more, Neva!  Celebrate as you please

                                      Now, here are Neva and Robin small in their star-making turns in "Henry, Sweet Henry."  Listen to both, and enjoy!

                                         Happy Birthday, Neva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
