I love love love this song. I can't wait to see Waitress when it arrives on Broadway!

Happy Birthday to me.

Here's a video from my second Counting Crows show of the season, at the PNC Bank Arts Center. My friend Sandi and I had lawn tickets but paid $10 to upgrade, so we ended up paying a total of $30 each for what turned out to be pretty great seats (though not front row like we're used to). Anyway, obviously the video quality is crap, and you can hear me singing along, but I filmed this for myself. I love this song. Scroll down for much better video from show #1 (front row). More to come after Atlantic City next weekend!

This has been an awesome summer for concerts. I saw U2 three times, saw Dave Matthews Band once, and am seeing Counting Crows three times. The first of those three shows was absolutely fantastic. I filmed my favorite songs; watch them above. I can't stop watching.

I'm back, and so soon! Don't worry, this isn't about Fun Home; this time I'm here to further your musical theatre education with this lovely new article about Hamilton, which is an absolutely brilliant show (I've written about it before). This article from Vogue is definitely worth reading, and the photos (by Annie Leibovitz) are gorgeous.

Here's the White House video that the article references (I've posted it before, but it's handy to share it again here because it's mentioned in the article, and it does give me chills):
Here I am with the show's brilliant creator/Hamilton:

And with Jonathan Groff (King George III):

I can't wait to see this show again, this time on Broadway (though I worry that it will lose a bit of its charm in a huge Broadway house that holds 1,319 people). I'm so glad I saw the show at the Newman Theater, with a seating capacity of 232 people; it was so intimate, and I loved being able to see the tears on the actors' faces. I'm still excited to see it on Broadway, though; I have tickets for November, but I'd like to see it before then as well.
