Eleven O’Clock Number

In musical theatre, there’s a tradition of having a song that really brings home the show.  It’s called the eleven o’clock number because it usually comes along at the climax, and that’s late in the second act.

In last night’s State of the Union speech, President Obama, like many of his predecessors, hit the high point when he acknowledged the service of Sgt. Cory Remsberg.

Standing ovation.
