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.

Broadway leading man and Glee star Matthew Morrison  talked with Stage Notes host Robert Hammond about his new CD, Where it All Began.  According to Morrison, this CD (the first released from Adam Levine’s new production company 222 Records) is a “dream come true.”  Stand outs on the recording are “On the Street Where You Live,”  “West Side Story Medley,”  a jazzed up version of “Younger than Springtime,” and a duet with Smokey Robinson, “Ease on Down the Road.”  Morrison’s interpretation of “Send in the Clowns” is another highlight (have tissues ready!).  It’s a must buy CD!
