The A-mah-zing…..

28 Jun

Emily!  What, no?!  Oh, okay it’s the a-mah-zing Seth Rudetsky!  Seth is hilarious and has a vast musical background and knowledge.  He’s written two books…

I took this picture from Seth's website

He’s a host on Sirius/XM Broadway, plus he also does great deconstructions of different broadway songs and has a vlog (that’s a video blog get your mind out of the gutter).

Seth posted two of my favorite musical clips on his website.  One involves the wonderful Raul Esparza.  I first saw/heard Raul in Company.  They had a run in the Playhouse in the Park in Cincinnati and there was no way I was going to miss out!  The stage was basically just a square with a few props on the stage.  The audience surrounded the stage on three sides.  I went with my mom and we had pretty sweet seats.  Raul was amazing as were the other cast members and they definitely deserved that Tony.

Anyway, back to what I was saying…  Seth had Raul sing Defying Gravity for a benefit called Miscast.  He basically pulled out his audition book and making actors sing songs that were the opposite of them.  Raul got Defying Gravity…

Pretty cool, eh?

Next!  In the Heights.  I’ve spoken of my love for In the Heights and Lynn Manuel Miranda before and this little gem is a-mah-zing!

This is Josh Henry from IN THE HEIGHTS demonstrating what he does backstage every night during the song “Home”.

I think that is ridiculous, in the greatest way possible.  What type of ear do you must have to hear that all those songs go together?  Crazy!

Tomorrow, friends, I promise that I will upload my last pictures from vacation!
