Tonight I attended “Not The Same: The Music & Lyrics of Bobby Cronin” at one of New York City’s most famous cabaret spaces, The Metropolitan Room (34 West 22nd Street). Debuting mostly new music, Bobby Cronin continues to shine as a songwriter/composer. Many of the songs tonight were from upcoming projects while a few classic Cronin songs were mixed in such as “8:01” and “Dear Daddy.” His music speaks to many different levels and touches upon a multitude emotions. From realizing you are in love to recounting all the losers you’ve dated to pushing through your own self discovery, Bobby’s got a song to match. Assembling some of the hottest young talent around: fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participants Erik Sisco, Kate Pazakis, Morgan Karr, the upcoming LaQuet Sharnell and Autumn Hurlbert as well as Andrew Samonsky, Celisse Henderson, Anne Fraser Thomas, Lisa Brescia, Marla Mindelle, Rachel Potter, Brian Gallagher, & George Psomas, these performers hit all the high notes with such skill & perfection. Definitely keep your eyes peeled and your ears perked because Bobby’s music is going to continue on and tonight’s performers are our future stars…so thank you Bobby for sharing your talent with the world and for having tomorrow’s future perform it today!

Tonight I had the unique experience of attending “Caty Bridgewater,” a work-in-progress presented by the STEP Theater Company (founded by LaQuet Sharnell from Broadway’s “The Lion King” & “Memphis”), with a book and lyrics by Trey Tatum and music and lyrics by Bobby Cronin (fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participant). It’s a work in progress because the full show that this is to become is not fully written yet. Tonight only the first act and the showstopping second act number have been written. By the time this show comes to full fruition, so much could change, but what I saw so far is pretty great. As of now the show is about Caty, a girl who loves deeply from music to people. She has aspirations of joining the high school choir, but is forced/persuaded to join the high school band at which time the action starts to unfold from her sister stealing boyfriend to Caty falling for her band teacher. As the show unfolds, so does Caty, as she grows and learns more about love, especially how to love herself. The full second act still needs to be written, but tonight’s showcase helped the creative staff see if they were headed in the right direction. Every show goes through a process like this during it’s creation. I feel so fortunate to have been able to be part of tonight’s showcase and this part of the show’s journey. The portion of the show that was presented tonight has given me enough excitement to hold me over until the show is fully complete (though I do admit I hope it’s soon because I’m eager to find out how it all ends).  So stay tuned because as soon as I get the word that a full staging is coming, I’ll be sure to let everyone know!
