Quandary Resolution 4747
fillip, paint the town red, force majeure, flounder

 

The Story was an old one, told before by Shakespeare and Ovid, but its retelling by Steven Soundheim made his nascent career and became a force majeure on Broadway;there are the Capulets, no Sharks--and here come the Montagues, no Jets, fillip, fillip, fillip,--fingers snapping, blades flashing; when they finish painting the town red tonight, there will be a body count.
