Cool! Here's a nice video of me singing an original piece by Bill Nelson at his Broadway's Future Songbook concert at the Lincoln Center. Enjoy!
Well, that was cool! Bill Nelson, an amazing up-and-coming lyricist, invited me to sing one of his original songs for a concert showcasing his work at the world famous Lincoln Center! It was my first time singing at Lincoln Center, so yay!
New video! Here I am a soap opera star giving a dramatic reading -- ah, reenactment -- of "The Giving Tree." It's stupid. But funny! I think, at least. Enjoy!
I've been keeping on point by taking classes at UCB for a few years now and I must admit that Character 101 has officially been my favorite. I've developed/written/re-written/performed six original characters over the past eight weeks and I feel like a boss. And today, my class had our showcase at UCB East! I was super pumped to close the show with my Feminist Girlfriend character. Rumor has it there's footage somewhere, so I will upload it when I find it.
Do you dislike the fashion industry's moral shortcomings as much as me? PERFECT.
So, we all know the Pope was just in town. This song has absolutely nothing to do with him. The title is misleading, I know. Take it up with Maury Yeston.
Point is, I love singing this song and I sang it at Broadway Sessions a while back and just got the footage.
Normally, this song is sung by a mistress to seduce Guido. However, I put my own spin on it. I thought -- what if this woman is still sexy but a little crazy? Like just a touch of the I-might-kill-you-in-your-sleep-but-it-might-be-worth-it cray? So, with that in mind, enjoy my rendition of "Call from the Vatican."
Well, I'm back. I can't believe I've spent the past six weeks overseas. I'm not even going to attempt to sum it all up because how do you describe heaven? HOW DO YOU DO IT?! You can't. And that's where I thought I was. I thought I had died and gone to musical theatre heaven. But I'm back. Which means that I'm not dead and I need to get back to work on my own projects. So keep an eye out for upcoming content!
Oh my god oh my god oh my god. It's finally here.
I'm off to Edinburgh to perform in one of my bucket list shows, "Rent."
See you in 6 weeks! If I return, that is.
Gretchen will be performing at the
Lincoln Center on January 25th as a soloist in the Broadway's Future Songbook series for a new musical created by Bill Nelson. Tickets are free. She's pretty pumped about it. More info HERE.
