In this brave new world of remote collaboration, Gordon and I are thrilled that the intrepid musical theatre students at Penn State are workshop-ing REB+VoDKa+ME as part of their fall curriculum, under the fearless leadership of director John Simpkins and music director Jennifer Peacock. You haven't really lived until you've watched a cast rehearse 7-part harmony in 3 distinct locations.
I was going a bit stir crazy, so I put together some remote demo recordings for Elevator Heart!
Putting everything together one remote piece at a time was challenging, but luckily the preternaturally insightful Andy Zinsmeister made everything sounds as if it Wasn't recorded in 11 different closets using 11 different microphones.
Audio Mixer, and Guitar, and Bass on two songs, and general genius: Andy Zinsmeister
Piano: Katya Stanislavskaya
Bass (on the other 4 songs): Eric Day
Drum Arrangements: Jeremy Yaddaw
Cello: Brian Sanders
After spending no less than [redacted] number of hours agonizing over the perfect set of videos to share, Gordon and I are proud to unveil our new Broadway On Demand channel. This is a very cool website, collecting content from a slew of exciting writing teams (not that I'm biased), and we're thrilled to be a part of it!
