Crossword Puzzle While Crossing the Bay: SF Playhouse Explains

San Francisco Playhouse is currently staging “Starting Here, Starting Now,” with music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.

Susi Damilano directs.

Here, Melissa Wolfklain, performs “Crossword Puzzle,” a 1977 torch song many ferry riders may relate to, as this is one of many artistic diversions done while crossing the Bay.

She explains in tells us in song why the words in the Sunday Times puzzle elude her today, and it’s because her lover is “on a boat to Bermuda with an ignorant lousy crumb.”
