"Pick-A-Little, Talk-A-Little" is a fun musical number that the women of the chorus of "The Music Man" get to be in. We are the back up to five of the principals as they call them and we're not talking school building principals. We sound like a brood of hens, which of course is exactly what songwriter Meredith Willson had in mind and illustrates his brilliance. The song is song really fast and is a killer on your throat. Our direction is to look like we are gossiping and enjoying it.
