Photos & Exclusive Special Report: Norm Lewis at Lincoln Center's American SongbookPhotos & Exclusive Special Report: Norm Lewis at Lincoln Center's American Songbook
by BWW News Desk - Jan 30, 2015

This season's Lincoln Center's American Songbook, curated by John Nakagawa and Charles Cermele, busted out of the gate with a 'B' (as in Broadway...) with an opening night featuring Billy Porter and, last night, a star who we saw in a whole new light, Norm Lewis. Lewis did what he does best, and knocked it out of the ballpark with a fantastic program, entitled WHO AM I?, in which he proved, via one of the strongest American Songbooks ever seen, that 'you are, indeed, what you sing.'

by Richard Jay-Alexander - Dec 23, 2014

While Rob and I were talking, we started chatting about the year in theatre and in life and BroadwayWorld.com's 10th Year in business and how it all began with his Dad taking him to see THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and how it led him down the path of becoming a fan of Michael Crawford. There's a story in there, that you may or may not know, but, it's a pretty safe bet that if that 'theatrical moment' hadn't occurred, this website might not be in existence. So ... today, I offer you MICHAEL CRAWFORD singing one of the most beloved traditional and holy songs of the season. (more...)

by Richard Jay-Alexander - Dec 22, 2014

Today we bring you something rare and fun. Via Andrea McArdle and the Original Broadway Cast of ANNIE, is a clip from an Television Special that aired on NBC, in 1977, the year the musical opened on Broadway at the ALVIN Theatre and became a bonafide SMASH! THE ANNIE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL was not particularly good, but was capitalizing on the name of the show that suddenly everyone was talking about. (more...)

by Richard Jay-Alexander - Dec 20, 2014

Today, being Saturday, we chose a cartoon. A REALLY POPULAR cartoon. The song in the video clip is 'Christmas Time Is Here' from A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS. The animated television special first aired on December 9, 1965 and was based on the famous characters in Charles M. Schulz' syndicated comic strip, PEANUTS. The comic strip began in 1950 and remained wildly popular until the year 2000. (more...)

by Richard Jay-Alexander - Dec 17, 2014

So .... this is sort of a 'mash-up' of mediums and a fun 'take' on a traditional Hanukkah song, bolstered by the additional creative forces of Trey Parker and Marc Shaiman. It also boasts the talents of Harvey Fierstein, Jackie Hoffman, Peter Matthew Smith, Shoshana Bean, Clarke Thorell, Jenn Gambatese, Michael Longoria, Rashad Naylor, Tracy Jai Edwards, Chester Gregory II, Dick Latessa and others from the Broadway cast of HAIRSPRAY. The year was 2003, and HAIRSPRAY, pretty much, owned Broadway. (more...)

by Richard Jay-Alexander - Dec 16, 2014

Unless you've been living under a rock this year, you will know that this year has been the YEAR OF IDINA MENZEL. With Elsa from FROZEN and her soaring vocal on Bobby and Kristen Lopez's 'Let It Go', inspiring more YOUTUBE videos than even Pharrell Williams' 'Happy' and then, John Travolta's 'gaffe' on Oscar night, annointing her with the new name of ADELE DAZEEM, it was off to a pretty good start.

by Richard Jay-Alexander - Dec 14, 2014

Today is Sunday and Sunday night is HOMELAND on Showtime, now in it's 4th season and as riveting as ever. It also informs my choice for Day 2 of BWW's 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS Holiday Video picks. Over the years, I have done a number of benefits for BroadwayWorld. Rob Diamond has a wonderful relationship with Tom Viola and everyone at Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS and the that has been the focus of the fundraising at these events. Now, when I do, pretty much, anything, I put alot of thought on the 'assignment' and am not a fan of, what I like to call, PARK & BARK events. I try to match talents and material in a very special way. This brings us to LAILA ROBINS. (more...)
