This Crystal-esque Oscar medley was written and performed by Rachel Shukert. Musical direction and piano by Rich Silverstein. Sound engineering by David Gould.
(Shukert also writes the blistering Smash recaps that make waking up on Thursday worthwhile)
Posting because Rob Morrow hired me last month to give him private instruction in disco dance for four weeks in preparation. Wishing him a lot of luck with this (I wish I had the time to fly to NYC to see it!)
so i probably have to see this? because it looks so bizarre?
Why would musical theater be the only culture that resists newness? It doesn’t make sense. Bands become successes on tumblr. Where’s the tumblr of musical theater? [The problem is] older people are willing to pay for it, and they’re the same audience that’s not going to want something new. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. I’d rather go see our future than most musicals. The theater is simply not democratized in any way, and other art forms are.
