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
During one scene where Olivia visits Nina, there is a Windows logo on the back of a flat screen monitor. The time period this episode often portrays would have been before Windows existed. However, this is all part of Walters "noir" story, where characters also use mobile communication devices. See more
[as Miles Davis' Freddie the Freeloader plays...
Do you like jazz?
Miles, Duke, Louie, John Coltrane. You can tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to. And whether or not they dance.
Jazz- not so much, but dancing? Sure.
Well, I guess we're opposites. I hate to dance.
