When it comes to singing in Musical Theatre, Stephen Sondheim deserves a category all to himself. His unique, brilliant and complex writing style is nothing short of genius. Upicking his songs, both in terms of text and musicality takes time, knowledge and practise, in order to lift them off the page, and sing what he intended for the performer.
We will be working on 'Being Alive' the climax song sung by the lead role of Bobby in the musical 'Company'. Originally written for a male actor, the recent revival saw a very successful gender swap, with a female in the role, and the song has frequently been sung in cabaret style by both male and female singers in the past.
I am thrilled to be joined this week by, ELLIOT BROADFOOT, who recently played the roll of Bobby at Leeds Conservatoire. Elliot will be sharing his own insights into the process he went through during rehearsals when working on this song, and I'm sure he will have plenty of tips about approaching Sondheim's work in general. We will finish the class with a LIVE PERFORMANCE of the song by Elliot.
Monday 27th March. 7.15 - 8.30pm. Online via Zoom.
