I’m bringing my own private video and audio collection to a theater near you! I will show you how to differentiate between what’s vocally amazing (Patti LuPone in EVITA) and what’s a vocal travesty (Madonna singing the same material).
Gavin Creel, Betty Buckley, Carly Simon, The Pajama Game, Melba Moore…ALL will be deconstructed.
Video highlights (lowlights?) include the mercifully short-lived BRADY BUNCH VARIETY HOUR and Cher singing all the roles in WEST SIDE STORY. Believe or not, you’ll see it!
For this show, I’ll be focusing on the fantastic variety shows from the 70′s. Liza not blinking throughout a fully-belted medley, Donny and Marie being forced to dance while introducing all of their guest stars and most importantly, the short-lived but mind-boggling series: The Brady Bunch Variety Hour. The show debuted in 1977 and was (not suprisingly) cancelled the same year, but there are nine delicious episodes that merit severe analysis.You will explore: The bedazzled outfits, the horribly executed dance steps, the swimming pool (ripped off from Donny and Marie’s Ice Skating Rink), the disco song medleys including “Shake Your Booty” and the hot budding romance between Alice the maid and and real estate agent played by… Rip Taylor. Plus, a special section focusing on the moving sub-plot of Greg moving out of the house (in his mid-twenties) and Carol Brady’s ensuing depression…all enacted in song. Finally, most shockingly, you will see the singing and dancing fake Jan!

WHAT: This is a class I’ve been teaching around the country.
Here are some of the things I address:
- Get the right cut of the song you’re auditioning with…stop singing the wrong 16 bars!
- Stop hating the song you’re auditioning with. So many people have a signature song that they no longer enjoy singing. I help people learn to love their song.
- These questions are also answered:
- How do I end this song?
- What do I think about when I’m singing?
- Where the h*ll do I look when I audition?
- What should I do with my body/hands?
- Can I sing this particular song at an audition for (fill in the blank)?
Every person gets individual attention!!!!
Come learn to love auditioning!!!!
