Trivia

Interestingly, during this musical episode, the two regular cast members of Fringe (2008) who have the most Broadway musical experience do not ever sing. Blair Brown (Nina) has had singing roles in Broadway productions of "The Threepenny Opera" and "Cabaret." And Michael Cerveris (The Observer/September) is better-known as a Broadway leading man than as a television or film actor; he has had lead roles in Broadway musicals such as "The Who's Tommy," "Titanic," "Assassins," "Sweeney Todd," "Lovemusik," and "Evita"; was nominated for Tonys for all but one of these; and won a Tony for "Assassins." In 2015, Cerveris won another Tony Award, this time for the musical "Fun Home." See more »

Loved Brown Betty
21 November 2013 | by (Northern Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

Unlike the previous poster, I enjoyed Brown Betty immensely, as a diversion and bit of levity in an increasingly grim Fringe universe. It was fascinating to see the other talents of the cast, and its message was sweet and poignant. I view it like those "holodeck" adventures that occurred throughout the Star Trek series, just a bit of fun. I am working my way through the series, and have only viewed through Northwest Passage, so please don't respond with spoilers,but in a series that has killed off two main characters so far, I worry for those left, whom I have grown to enjoy. Also, this episode allowed the music team that works on this show to really show off their chops, and brings to the forefront the background music that often goes under-appreciated. (Although, after one episode, I had a several-days-long ear-worm of "Dear Mr. Fantasy".....)
