Getting “Clubbed"

The three leads from Huntington’s production of Merrily We Roll Along were asked to perform this at Manhattan Theatre Club annual gala - a fancy-schmancy fundraiser with dinner, cocktails, and A-List entertainment. But if the A-List is unavailable…. you call the understudy. (Hey, maybe this means I AM the A-List!)

So tomorrow night Joey and I will be getting decked out in our finest attire and joining my fellow understudy Caleb Damschroder and the amazing Eden Espinosa at MTC’s tribute to Hal Prince. We’ll be singing “Our Time” from Merrily. Wondering if I’m the only one to notice that it might be a little odd to honor someone by performing a song from someone else's successful version of his most legendary flop. 

Might need more than one cocktail before we do this one...
