“Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown”, starring the talents of Sherie Rene Scott, Laura Benanti, Patti LuPone, Danny Burstein, de'Adre Aziza, Brian Stokes Mitchell and many more, closed after only 69 performances at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway on January 2nd, 2011.
Susan Blackwell brought her signature style and humor backstage at Broadway Bares XXII, chatting with stars about happy endings, asses, tiaras and the Bares diet. Get an eyeful of all the hot fun behind the scenes.
performed by Al Silber (and, silently, Nikka Graff Lanzarone)
One of the weird after-effects of last night’s Baby concert was learning that Al Silber had a pretty devout fan who made a bootleg of the Hello Again we worked on together that has better sound quality than I even heard in the theater. And then uploaded it to YouTube with photos s/he got from facebook? Crazytown. Among other things, I’m glad Mary-Mitchell Campbell’s orchestration is preserved.
Part Two of Our Behind the Scenes Video Series Released Today!
Hey guys! Today, The Ensemblist releases the second of two special video features to coincide with the release of our “Listener Questions" episode, including some unreleased footage from the interviews!
In the second part of the video series, to be released Monday, December 30, Andy Richardson, who covered the role of Crutchie in Newsies for a year before taking over the role full time, shares the story of how he found out he would be taking over his current role, while Lauren Molina of Broadway’s Rock of Ages answers a listener question about her experience working as an actor/musician in John Doyle’s production of Sweeney Todd.
Are you in NYC? Do you like to hear people sing awesome music (Fiona Apple, Bob Dylan, Pixies, Talking Heads, Robyn, and MORE?) and tell (maybe) true stories? Do you like to support people creating their own stuff and doing the things they really love to do?
Come see this show. I wrote it with my friend Tim Drucker, and my brilliant musical soulmate Jasper Grant has arranged the hell out of some incredible tunes.
Click on that photo above to buy tickets. They are only $15 if you buy them in advance. I’d really love to see you there. It should be a pretty great time.

Thanks! I will probably post more about this as we get closer, but I want to get the word out!
