BWW Blog: Andrea McArdle - 4Girls4
Hiya BWW gang!
Here we are for another blog, I had a blast working with my 4Girls4 gang last week, the Music Center At Strathmore was such a beautiful space, a treat to visit.
As soon as I got back late Friday after the show, Faith and I jumped in a car right after our performance since we both had Saturday gigs, my dearie Ms. Prince wowed them over at the 92nd Street Y as part of their Lyrics & Lyricists series, and I was set to sing in the Wall to Wall Cabaret program at Symphony Space. There's nothing like waking up in your own bed the morning before an evening show, haha!
The genius that is Steve Maruzllo, my darling musical "master", was my accompanist for the event, I'm a lucky girl ain't I? We performed the gorgeous David Loud arrangement of "Look for the Silver Lining/Tomorrow", I have such a fond memory of debuting his beautiful blending of those two songs at the MY FAVORITE BROADWAY: THE LEADING LADIES LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL concert a number of years back.
The Wall to Wall event was a thrill, so many talents, Marilyn Maye, Andrea Marcovicci, Karen Mason, Julie Murney, Jim Caruso, Billy Stritch, Molly Pope (she's a gem), - and the afternoon started with a master class by Barbara Cook! I am always so excited knowing that this Philly girl calls NYC home on nights like that!
Afterwards I came home to my new apartment, which I've barely seen-haha-"busy babe problems" and just vegged out and caught up with The Voice, GOD I LOVE THAT SHOW!
Sooooo, what's next, well this Saturday, May 10th, Seth Rudetsky and I are storming the stage at the Pocono Theater and "putting on a show y'all", it's always an unpredictable adventure when I team with Seth, he's simply showbiz and the Prince of Puns and full of the funniest stories ever, plus he knows just how to make you reveal your own "dirty secrets", so I'm looking forward to causing some trouble with him, and in truth Seth is a true musician so we'll be doing it all that night, I cannot wait.

What else before we say goodbye for now? Hmmmm, I have to say how happy I am about all the 2014 Tony Award nominees for Best Performance by an Actress in A Leading Role in A Musical, each of those leading ladies are giving fabulous performances each and every night, atta girls!
Next time I'm going into my picture vaults to share some exclusive photos ONLY for you, bye BWW! xoxo
