I’ve been failing as a theatre addict lately, though Ive seen a couple shows nothing has inspired me… until JRB came along.
A couple weeks ago, thanks to my favourite blogs at the addict.com network, I found out about a Jason Robert Brown concert in Toronto. This was a once in a longtime deal. So I invited my musically enlightened friend Chris and we went to see the new Sondheim perform in person.
He was wonderful. Take my breath away, out of body experience- type WONDERFUL. Warm fuzzies and cold shivers were abundant throughout the show. Glenn Gould Studio was filled to the brim with musical theatre lovers, complete nerds and other phenomenal people of the sort who swoon at sung poetry.
The magic of the encore can’t be described. Someone to fall back on sums up my Donna mentality (TV reference to be explained in a latter post). Lets just say, I’m obsessed.
With all my love, I send you to jasonrobertbrown.com to listen to the recording.
