by Pat Cerasaro - July 9, 2014

Today we are talking to one of the most idiosyncratic and popular recording artists of the new millennium all about his incredibly striking new acoustic album YES!, the delightfully affable and incredibly gifted Jason Mraz. Espousing on the finer points of YES! and how the anomalous album was crafted from inspiration to creation to actual release, Mraz shares candid insights into the songwriting and production process as well as shares some autobiographical details on what informed many of the standouts on the stunning new disc. Furthermore, Mraz outlines his relationship with vocal and musical quartet Raining Jane and how their collaboration formed not only the sound, mood, vibe and tone of the new album, but the title itself. Additionally, Mraz comments on some audience favorites that are recognizable to fans from his ongoing live shows as well as touches upon some tracks that will appear on future special editions of YES! Plus, Mraz opens up about specific songs and shines a light on how they were formed in the studio and in front of audiences worldwide, while also sharing his affection for the recent live concert taped at his own organic farm and the upcoming tour dates occurring in support of the new release. All of that, thoughts on a Jason Mraz jukebox musical and much, much more with a multi-Grammy Award-winning music superstar of the modern age. (more...)

Navigating the treacherous territory of super-stardom - well, at least on Broadway, headlining FUNNY GIRL - GLEE's 'The Back-Up Plan' gave us a generous dose of showbiz razzle dazzle and flash, while also showing some of the ugly side. Plus, Shirley MacLaine and Darren Criss rock Janis Joplin! (more...)

'This place smells like barf!' exclaimed Sue Sylvester upon arriving in the Big Apple for the very first time. Yet, nothing came close to stinking in last night's Glee - actually, it was one of the most April fresh and Broadway-centric, blissfully entertaining episodes to date, all considered. FUNNY GIRL, too! Plus, BroadwayWorld got lovingly name-checked - again! (more...)
SOUND OFF: GLEE Gets TestedSOUND OFF: GLEE Gets Tested
by Pat Cerasaro - April 16, 2014

Sex, food and rock n roll was the theme of GLEE's "Tested" - showcasing some tubular 80s tunes ranging from Robert Palmer and Foreigner to Pat Benatar and Janet Jackson, all while explicating the finer points of modern sexuality as it pertains to the characters and viewing audience at large, as well. Reliably timely, GLEE got tested - and passed with flying colors; a rainbow, no doubt. (more...)

What, dare say, is “the ultimate musical theatre challenge”? Well, Sondheim, that is! Otherwise known as the greatest living musical theatre dramatist and the subject of this week's GLEE - FOLLIES to SWEENEY TODD and INTO THE WOODS. And, touching, timely and terrific tribute it was. (more...)

Last night's second part of the celebratory 100th episode, titled “New Directions”, written and directed by co-creator Brad Falchuk, delivered a recognizable vibe and welcome feeling of the first season of the show - as is all too apt considering the series is transitioning before our very eyes and ears to a predominantly New York City-set storyline. McKinley Goodbyes! (more...)
SOUND OFF: GLEE 100! The Original Ten ReturnSOUND OFF: GLEE 100! The Original Ten Return
by Pat Cerasaro - March 19, 2014

The Beatles once sang, 'You say goodbye / I say hello,' and so it goes with the gang on FOX's hit musical dramedy GLEE - new beginnings; new endings; and, well, New Directions, too. GLEE's '100' episode reunited the original crew - minus, of course, the tragically deceased Cory Monteith, who played headlining football hero Finn and who was paid elegant tribute with grace and class both last week and this week in his absence - with the addition of the new gleeks added in the ensuing seasons. While many of the new stars never managed to capture the lighting in a bottle that the originals commanded, it is undeniable that they each provided their own special spice in the GLEE stew and a handful broke out to considerable prominence on Broadway and beyond, particularly in the case of Darren Criss aka Blaine. Nonetheless, what made us all fall in love with GLEE in the first place, lo, more than five seasons ago, was that original recipe - and it's still as savory, spicy, sweet and mouth-watering as ever, as last night's spectacular celebratory entry showcased in spades; and hearts, too. But, yet, we are forced to ask: is this the end or the beginning? (more...)

Plus, a truly rockin' 'More Than A Feeling' (Boston) too - in every imaginable way and, well, more! All things considered, what other Primetime TV show has 'Obscure Broadway to Queen at a moment's notice'?! (more...)

SOUND OFF: GLEE Goes Three WaysSOUND OFF: GLEE Goes Three Ways
by Pat Cerasaro - March 5, 2014

Gloria! GLEE is nearing graduation season, complete with senior flings, faculty faux pas and Fat Tuesday-befitting festivities on the NYC side of the show, as well. Last night's ep gave us some major '80s gems, '90s lite rockers, '00 anthems and even an obscure '60s tune, too, showing the dependable diversity of not only the music but the general themes of the one and only hit musical dramedy series in history. Heart to The Supremes to Simple Minds, Wilson Phillips and Destiny's Child - it was a delight. (more...)
SOUND OFF: 12 Years, Bigger & Longer - The 2014 OscarsSOUND OFF: 12 Years, Bigger & Longer - The 2014 Oscars
by Pat Cerasaro - March 3, 2014

The 2014 Academy Awards telecast was lovely, lengthy and a generally low-key affair, filled with more than a few buzz-worthy moments worth a replay or two as well as some spectacular song sequences, too - as would be expected from two noted and similarly Oscar-winning producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Ellen Degeneres delivered on the humor as expected, if not surpassing expectations in doing more than merely decently, whereas the winners themselves were generally smart and savvy choices, all said - 12 YEARS A SLAVE and DALLAS BUYER'S CLUB nabbing many top awards. Plus, FROZEN took home a well-earned trophy or two and its sensational lead Idina Menzel was responsible for not only the performance of the night - a Swarovski explosion of epic proportions, with vocals to match - but also the viral video, too, byway of John Travolta's unfortunate faux pas introduction mispronouncing the Broadway superstar's name. Oops, Oohs, Ahhs, and, well, OZ, the 2014 Oscars fulfilled its promise of entertaining, if perhaps overstaying its welcome - yet, who would want to sacrifice those fabulous speeches; or anything else, for that matter? Everyone got their moment - but maybe just a moment or two too many. (more...)

by Pat Cerasaro - February 26, 2014

Light the lights! FOX's hit musical dramedy series returned after a long midseason hiatus last night - and how! To cite an especially adored and incredibly iconic Jule Styne score, GYPSY, the fights, fits, feuds and some gigantic egos were on display - and it was an episode fit for Madame Rose - but the focus was really on Styne's other iconic diva showcase, FUNNY GIRL. Let the parade begin... again! (more...)
