MURDER FOR TWO was honored yesterday with a nomination for an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New Musical Off-Broadway. This is in addition to my co-star Jeff Blumenkrantz’s recent Lucille Lortel nomination for Best Actor in a Musical.
I’m very proud of our little show, and if you haven’t yet seen it – then what are you waiting for?
Yesterday was also an exciting day because we participated in the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids Easter Bonnet Competition. I was selected as the member of our cast to wear our bonnet. Go figure.
Note: this is NOT the bonnet I wore, and also this is not how I felt wearing it.
Jeff and I had a fun time hanging around the Minskoff theatre with the, um, cast members of The Lion King.
But the really cool part of the evening was when I unexpectedly ended up on stage with Bryan Cranston, Idina Menzel, Fran Drescher, and Denzel Washington.
And I just have to thank the cast of After Midnight, who was so nice to allow me to get into a pic with Bryan Cranston after they won some award for something or other.
If you’re looking for an excuse to see MURDER FOR TWO – there ain’t a better one than this.
Next Monday, April 7th, following our performance you’ll get to see work from 2 emerging musical theatre composers. Alexander Sage Oyen and ME! I will be presenting a condensed concert of my musical comedy THE TAVERN KEEPER’S DAUGHTER.
For the price of one ticket – you get 3 shows. Frankly, it’s criminal.
And a portion of all ticket sales goes to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Use code MRMUSMON20 to get $37 tickets (normally $87) and join Alexander and myself and a cast of massive Broadway talent (i.e. Lesli Margherita, Taylor Trensch, Todd Buonopane, Julia Mattison, Preston Sadleir, Leo Ash Evans, and so on) for a GREAT Monday night out.
Broadway World posted this FAB video from Murder for Two, which continues to delight audiences 8 times a week over at New World Stages. Enjoy!
My day off from MURDER FOR TWO at New World Stages is Tuesday – which is an odd day off for a stage actor, Monday being the typical day, or sometimes Sunday.
Typically, I’ll spend the day at home – writing, catching up on TV, drinking beer, and cooking for the week.
If you’re the cast of the INTO THE WOODS movie, however – you apparently spend your day off filming a music video with Paul McCartney at Abbey Road. Which, y’know, six of one…
