So I'm currently on vacation, but still wanted to pop in to give some updates on some of the composers I've mentioned on this blog. Perhaps most significantly (to me anyway) was the announcement of this concert: The New Musical Theatre Launch Concert at Le Poisson Rouge. This concert, on April 26, will feature a slew of the writers/composers mentioned on this blog: Nick Blaemire, Kerrigan and Lowdermilk, Joe Iconis, Adam Gwon, Ryan Scott Oliver, and Pasek and Paul. It's an all-star line-up, and the theatre geek in me is so excited that I'm trying not to gush as I mention this event.
Also, for some "bloody" updates on shows recently mentioned/reviewed on this blog, Bloody Blood Andrew Jackson has officially opened to rave reviews -- many of which can be found here (gotta love StageGrade). Bloodsong of Love is also in full promotional swing, with a kazoo party in Union Square today and a post-show concert after tomorrow night's show. Apparently the show is sold out until Friday, but if you manage to get a $15 "splash zone" ticket or a $10 rush ticket, a free supernova drink, you've got the best deal in town.
Lastly, I just want to end on some gorgeous videos from Nick Blaemire's latest Songbook concert at Lincoln Center (wow, it would have been nice to be in the city for this):
David Hull (who recently made for a wonderful heartthrob in recent production of Calvin Berger) singing "New Home":
And Preston Sadleir singing "The Weather":
