This week it’s an all-out lovefest for the exceptional talent of Tony Award-Winning Broadway composer and member of music theatre royalty, Adam Guettel. We talk about our experiences at his recent Melbourne Cabaret Festival show, and why we adore The Light in the Piazza and Floyd Collins. We’ve also got lots of love for his accompanist, conductor and MD Kim Grigsby, and his delightful fellow performer Haley Bond. Then we discuss our Musical Theatre Guilty Pleasures: those musicals you know are pretty cheesy and embarrassing, but dammit you just can’t help loving dat show. Tyson has some respectable affection for Maltby and Shire’s Big: The Musical, while Jelly’s guilty pleasure is almost too shameful to admit (two words: Phil. Collins.).
Wow, look at this video of Adam Guettel interviewing Stephen Sondheim. This is an absolute must watch. *sniff*
Haley Bond sings ‘Through the Mountain’. (Love you forever Haley.)
