“Birthday Song” by Carole King

Happy Birthday
Celebrate your day in style
Happy Birthday
Tonight I want to see you smile
Your whole life is in front of you, you’ve only just begun
So Happy Birthday
The best is yet to come

Happy Birthday to you
The good things I could say about you are infinite
But I will only take a minute
To say the world is a better place with you in it
With you in it

Happy Birthday
You know just how to be
Happy Birthday
I’m glad you’re you with me
To know you is to love you, to love you is to be blessed
So Happy Birthday
You deserve the best

Every time I ever reach out for you
You never let me down
Any time you’re ever in need of a friend
I will always be around

Happy Birthday
You are everything that’s good
You are everything that matters
I would give you the world if I could
You will always be a part of me and all that I go through
So Happy Birthday, dear friend
May all your dreams come true
Happy birthday to you

Twitter Crashed, Travolta tanked, Idina soars, and Ellen Rules! An Oscar Recap on “Stage Notes”

selfie-413x233Broadway was represented in full-force at this year’s Academy Awards! Although John Travolta decimated the pronunciation of her name, Tony Award winner (Elphaba in Wicked) Idina Menzel, did the Great White Way proud with her performance of “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen.  Broadway songwriter (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) Robert Lopez not only won his first Academy Award but also became one of only 12 EGOTs — people who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.  A full Stage Notes recap with host Robert Hammond  is just a click away.

After eighty-five Academy Award ceremonies and hundreds of films nominated for Best Motion Picture, only ten of those winning films have been musicals. The American Film Institute defines a “musical” as “a feature-length film in which music and lyrics significantly advance the plot, develop character, or are otherwise integral to the film narrative.”

Join host Robert Hammond as he showcases musicals that have won the coveted Best Motion Picture Oscar.

Television icon Ellen DeGeneres returns to host the Oscars for a second time. The Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2013 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
