Green Day,
21 Guns (feat. Green Day & the Cast of "American Idiot") - Single

Before the cast of American Idiot recorded a cast album, they released a single version of “21 Guns.” They would later perform this song on the Grammy Awards, and I believe that performance was also released as a single.

Free Design,
The Best Of

blues2broadway:

Starting from the top! Yes, Stephen Schwartz wrote this song relatively early on in his career - and I think he did make quite a bit of progress from there, non?

Liza Minnelli,
Live At The Winter Garden

That time when Liza, Fred, and John tried and failed to create a sequel song to “Liza With A ‘Z.’”

Carol Channing performing “It’s Delightful Down in Chile” from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in 1957. (via Alan Eichler)

While it’s not as cool as mrdavidgordon's words on the side of a Broadway theater, I think this is the first time a show has used one of my reviews for pull-quotes and paid advertisements (in the form of a sponsored Facebook post).

If you haven’t checked out The Interval yet, I recommend it. They’ve only been around since August but they are doing some fantastic interviews with female theatrical professionals. I mean Susan Stroman, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Heidi Schreck, Christina Anderson, Lindsay Mendez, etc etc. It’s nice to see a site devoted solely to women in theater. Keep an eye on them.
I met them yesterday at maxamoo HQ- they recorded an interview that I believe will be up the same day as the Female Playwright Preview I did- and they were lovely. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them.

The Nance, starring Nathan Lane, on PBS’ website.

I was at the taping of this! Watch it if you have time. I think it’s a very tightly constructed play with an ~important message.

I know a lot of people have trouble remembering the order of the Vehicles in the first verse of “Another Hundred People”. I used to, here’s the subtextual mnemonic I used. The important thing to remember is that it’s about New York Pride/Snobbery.

Another Hundred People just got off of the train and came up through the ground-

Or, you know, it starts underground and moves upward.
