Who knew Kevin Spacey would do so much singing?   Kevin Spacey Kicks Off (With the Rockettes) Who knew Frank Underwood could sing? The host croons his way through homages to some of the season’s biggest hits, from “Evan Hansen” to “Sunset Boulevard.”   “Come From Away” The Canada-set 9/11 musical earned a Tony for director Christopher Ashley — and impressed with its opening number, “Welcome to the Rock.”   “Miss Saigon” Eva Noblezada was a teenager when she was cast to lead the revival of Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil’s 1989 re-telling of “Madame Butterfly.” And she wows in this medley.   “Falsettos” Christian Borle, »

Tony Nominee Eva Noblezada On ‘Miss Saigon,’ Vocal Care, and Self-Esteem

31 May 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Those musicals brought anthem-itis to these shores, and popularized the sung-through musical in all its serious dreariness while providing none of opera’s glorious grandeur. Stephen Sondheim once said that recitative is like pouring molasses over a score. Great opera composers have known how to distinguish their breakout arias from the sung speech. »
