I have a friend who went on a rant about Kristin Chenoweth. I have to admit I didn’t know who he was talking about. So, I looked into her career. She’s a Tony award-winning actress and singer. And I think she’s brilliant. Sorry, friend.
Here’s a good example of her range.
Nine the movie version of the Broadway musical is playing in theatres now. I haven’t seen it yet. Nicole Kidman sings my favorite song from the show, Unusual Way.
Here is Laura Benanti in the Broadway revival with Antonio Banderas.
I’m becoming obsessed with musical theatre on youtube.
Not sure if it’s because I’ve been watching Glee, or if I just miss New York this time of year. Everyone back East is wearing sweaters and coats and scarves. I love coats. And I’m sitting typing this in L.A. in a short-sleeved tee shirt. It’s not natural.
I’ve even been listening to “On Broadway,” the satellite radio channel in the car. That’s how I found Seth Rudetsky. I love his deconstruction videos.
If you have any recommendations, please leave them in the comments section.

Everything else is being turned into a musical. At least we know this will have a good story.
But please, I beg you, no singing candles.
