Most importantly, Crawford discusses her participation in this weekend's open house event to benefit Rosie's Theater Kids and shares her enthusiasm for joining Broadway proponent and Tony Award Honors recipient Rosie O'Donnell in bringing attention to the acclaimed theatre program for underprivileged youth, as well as clues us in on what she will be performing, too.

BWW Feature: Sondheim's Most Hummable SongsBWW Feature: Sondheim's Most Hummable Songs
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 25, 2015

After seeing the new INTO THE WOODS movie twice over the holidays, I posted on Twitter about how two of the songs had stuck with me. After a tweet conversation, my BWW colleague Jeff Walker and I decided to put our heads together to try and come up with a list of Sondheim's most hummable tunes. Despite not discussing it beforehand, Jeff ended up picking songs from the 1960s and 70s, and I filled in the gaps with numbers from the 80s and 90s. (more...)

That same energy and passion for performance is pristinely captured on Yellow Sound Label's I'VE BEEN PLAYED: ALYSHA UMPHRESS SWINGS JEFF BLUMENKRANTZ, making this album a sure-fire toe-tapping dazzler.

BWW Review: The ANNIE Remake is Bad, but Not 
Nearly as Bad as You ThinkBWW Review: The ANNIE Remake is Bad, but Not Nearly as Bad as You Think
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 15, 2014

Full disclosure, I was completely ready to despise everything about the remake of ANNIE starring Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhane Wallis. In fact, I had already written the lede in my head, and let me tell you, it was scathing. But, then I saw the movie, and was pleasantly surprised by how not completely horrible it was.
