I came across this wonderful site, www.newmusicaltheatre.com, and fell in love with their lists of contemporary musical theatre songs for singers of all stripes. So this week, instead of focusing on a specific show for #AuditionInspiration, I'm listing some fabulous new songs for female classical singers.
1. No One Else by Dave Malloy from Natasha and the Great Comet of 1812
2. I Won't Mind by Jeff Blumenkrantz, Annie Kessler, and Libby Saines (Warning: set the Kleenex nearby.)
3. Poor Monty by Steven Lutvak and Robert L. Freedman, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder (This kween is my new hero...ine.)
4. Will You by Michael Korie and Scott Frankel from Grey Gardens
5. Winter Wait for Me by Will Reynolds
For more terrific songs and the accompanying sheet music, check out The Top Ten Songs for the Classical Singer on NMT's website!
I feel like no one ever does this WONDERFUL, UNDER-RATED show. If you're discovering it for the first time, you're in for a treat!
I used to think that every person pursuing a musical theatre career should be required to swing. Like a theatrical version of compulsory military duty.
