Well, lots of news some great, some disappointing...but anyway,  CrazyExGirlfriend has been renewed for Season 3 (as previously posted) so that is great news.

Tonight's episode has ultimate royalty with Tovah Feldshuh and Patti LuPone guest starring. Honestly, after last week's double episode, I am very impressed with how much water is still in the CEG well. We'll see tonight how it helps.

I'm so glad that CW/CBS is giving the show some more time and I think they are hoping to pick up viewers that like "LaLa Land". I know that's a touchy subject too, you either love it or hate it...I myself really really wanted to like it but it's all dazzle and no depth, IMO. So if you really like "LLL" you should give CEG a chance. Aline and Rachel and Adam write circles of comedy and song around Chazzelle.

One last thing, turn on your TV to any channel but Trump next Friday; it will lower the ratings for the event, as all cable boxes are monitored for ratings, so just having any thing else on will bring the ratings down.

(I'm sad that JH is performing...but JH must need the substantial payout) and I hope to God Steve Harvey says no. If you can Be in DC on Jan 21st to show your voice. 

And Watch CEG Tonight With LuPone and Feldshuh!!!

I was expecting Patti LuPone's Crazy Ex Girlfriend cameo to be brassy and over the top. Surprisingly they gave her a lovely understated conversation with Rebecca and left the broad comedy to the delightful Tovah Feldshuh.

Does everyone have their tix for "Crazy For You" Sunday at Geffen Hall? Pretty Dynamite cast w/ Laura Osnes, Tony Yasbeck and guess who?

Rachel Bloom! "Crazy Ex is in Crazy For", Jerry o'Connell, Rachel Dratch, and more. The all star cast is also doing the original Susan Strohman choreography.

We're seeing "Sunset Boulevard" and the "Crazy..." Hopefully a little bit of fun with distract me from this hellish admin.

Finally caught up with Season 2 now that it's all on Netflix. This show continues to be one of the funniest and intelligent things on television. The cast, as far as I'm concerned, is unrivaled. Rachel Bloom is a total star, and Donna Lynne Champlin should be getting so much more attention for her work. I also really enjoyed Scott Michael Foster's addition to the cast- maybe a bit of a gimmick, but he fits in well with these weirdos. I appreciated as well how dark Bloom & co were willing to go this season- I already cannot wait to see what Season 3 brings. 

I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

Well it's pretty easy to say Sunday night at Geffen Hall was a "Crazy Good" success. 

There are plenty of raves, and posts and videos here, on BroadwayMania, everywhere. This show is so ready for a revival. Rachel Bloom did not disappoint in her role; she and Jerry O'Connell were a cute couple, singing and dancing comic relief.

Rachel must be very popular indeed on stage among an audience of not just fans of the show, but so very many young people both on and off stage. (You had to be a real stormtrooper to stage door on Sunday night). Judging by the audience and crowd response I think she inspiring a lot of talented young and not so young people.

Hopefully she'll be back to Broadway; let's keep telling everyone how good Crazy ExGirlfriend is as we wait for Season 3!

(It's even popular on my library's "hold/reserve" list. Season 1 DVD has 14 people waiting for it)

Hey Kids! It's awards season and Crazy Ex Girlfriend is already starting to get some well deserved recognition. First, we get this really funny original music video that Rachel Bloom "doesn't care about awards".

http://www.broadwayworld.com/videoplay/VIDEO-Rachel-Bloom-Insists-I-Dont-Care-About-Awards-Shows-in-Hilarious-New-Video-20170607 

The Gracie Awards for Women In Media just rewarded both Donna Lynne Champlin and Rachel Bloom with awards for Supporting Actress and Leading Actress in a Comedy Series. DLC may get some added attention this year b/c of her moving abortion storyline. DLC gave quite a nice acceptance speech at the dinner.

It was also awarded Best Comedy Series.

Also, it was just announced that Susan Stroman is mounting a full production of "Crazy For You" in Los Angeles; I wonder if RB will be among those returning to perform. The LCT concert production was "amaze-balls"; Tony Yazbeck, and that whole cast blew the roof off Geffen Hall that night. I'm so glad we were able to be there.

Lastly, Rachel Bloom will be at/on the Tony Awards on Sunday. I don't know if she is performing or presenting but I'm sure she'll get a nice reception.

Season 3 - coming soon!

I finally caught this show via binge watching on Netflix. It's utterfly brilliant. Parts of season 1 were uneven, but it never provided anything terrible. I know I'm in the minority, but I really liked Josh in season 1 and thought Greg was actually more of the fantasy (for the viewer if not for Rebecca). However, in season 2, it's clear, as it was pretty clear in season 1 but the tone of season 1 was so optimistic and romantic that you got swept up, that everyone has so many issues that nobody should really be hooking up with anyone. I love that this show really doesn't shy away from really putting those themes in the forefront. I loved the songs in season 1 and I didn't think season 2 could top it, but boy did season 2 top it. I don't know which songs are my favorite, but I keep listening to "Math of Love Triangles"; "Friendtopia"; "I Give Good Parent"; "Group Hang"; "Villain in my Own Story"; "I Have Friends"; "What a Rush to be a Bride"; and "Trapped in the Bathroom."

Heather has become my favorite character somehow, and I like how they made Valencia become friends with Rebecca but still keeping her personality close to what she was in season 1.

Rachel Bloom plays Lisa Simpson's therapist on a Broadway-themed "Simpsons" tonight that also features Martin Short and Alison Bechdel "Fun Home".

Also, CW just announced that Betty Buckley is joining the cast of "Supergirl"; that show also has a lot of Broadway performers. Now, they just need to get Betty Buckley to guest star on "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

"Crazy" is back in top form and truly, crazy!! and so, so much fun. 

Two big production numbers did not disappoint; the first was a re-cap almost "Disney" style...the second is "Let's Generalize About Men (But Not Gay Men)!, a tribute to 80's girl band videos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lu3FE7BswYI 

The added twist of making a sex tape with a "Josh Chan" look-a-like (being played by a British accented Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez himself) is more pure crazy and fun, (not to mention the poop cupcakes)...

Support Musicals Especially on TV !!!!

This is really a landmark, intelligent season. They have totally gone in a very serious direction while keeping the humor and music intelligent, relevant and entertaining in a serious way at times.

It was great to see Tovah Feldshuh back as her mother and the song, "Maybe She's Not Such A Heinous Bitch After All" should win an Emmy for her and that episode. Scott Michael Foster, Donna, and Pete, Vella, Gabrielle and Vincent, (his line when he was trying to talk to God and saying "I'm not Aladdin" was so-o funny!), are really being featured with more story and song. I still haven't seen last night's episode so I'll prepare myself for that.

Watch this show!!!

On the occasion of "Crazy's" 100th song/music vid, Vulture has done a nice compilation with youTube clips of almost 85-90 of the songs. So if you missed out on watching this show here is a quick way to sample the huge variety of styles and music that Rachel Bloom, Adam S. and Jack D. do so very well.

The show is back from winter break on 1/26. Enjoy!

It's already back from winter break! Although I think it's taking this next Friday off again for some reason. But it's had like two eps back from break.
