I was going to edit this episode into 2 separate shows, but, since we’re only releasing
one show a month now, I decided to just put it all out there…

MW111 – SERENITY FISHER & MICHAEL RONSTADT

MW111 Featuring SERENITY FISHER & MICHAEL RONSTADT and
their musical ? at The FRINGE FESTIVAL in Cincinnati, Ohio

serenity 1michael 1

On this episode we visit with
SERENITY FISHER and MICHAEL RONSTADT
about their recent run of their musical, “?”, at the
Cincinnati FRINGE FESTIVAL back in August.

These quotes, from their bio’s at SerenityFisher.com, describe them best…

Serenity Fisher and the Cardboard Hearts blend playful pop-rock with a

Tim Burton-esque quirkiness. A wordsmith, Serenity Fisher entices stories
into becoming songs using truth-telling, highly-visual lyrics, and dreamy melodies.
Fisher is a powerhouse singer whose nuanced vocals vary from bluesy belt to
sultry whisper, from technical prowess to stripped down raw emotion.
Her piano style is theatrical and passionate. Her music has been compared to
Regina Spektor, Tori Amos and Fiona Apple.”

“Cellist Michael G. Ronstadt, nephew of Queen of Rock Linda Ronstadt,
holds a masters degree in cello performance from the University of Cincinnati’s
College Conservatory of Music (CCM). Ronstadt brings a rich musical heritage
and absolute knack for improvising up a storm.”

We had a wonderful, candid conversation with them about their experience at
The Fringe Festival as well as being full time musicians.

Serenity joined us previously on MW101 with Robin “OK” O’neal Kissell when they
spoke to us about their Fringe Festival musical VORTEX OF THE GREAT UNKNOWN.

Enjoy Michael Ronstadt performing DARK RIDDLES live… This is stunning!

Music performed on this episode of MusicalWorld is:
CROOKED FIDDLE
FLUER D’VORTEX
CAROUSEL OF LOVE
FOOLISH FOX

MW106 – FLASHBACK! MW4 – CONVENIENCE – GREGG COFFIN
gregg1
It’s been suggested by some that we re-release some of the older MW episodes
that, for one reason or another, are very hard to find these days…
and I thought that was a great idea… especially since our schedules
aren’t permitting the time to get as many new episodes recorded!
So… we’re going to start off the MW flashback editions with one of the first
and still one of my favorite new musicals… CONVENIENCE.
This episode originally “aired” on April 2nd, 2006,
shortly after we broke ground on the MW tower. :-)
Gregg’s music & musicals remains among my favorites in the
new musical theatre genre… Smart, funny and well thought through.

On this episode we hear several songs from Convenience:

Waking Vince/I Love How We Start Off Our Day sung by Jim Poulos, Melissa Rain Anderson and Mary Jo McConnell
Convenient –  sung by Jim Poulos and Mary Jo McConnell
Unsung by Melissa Rain Anderson and Mary Jo McConnell & Jim Poulos
Crawling Forwardsung by Melissa Rain Anderson
Letting Gosung by Jim Poulos and Ron DeStefano
The Ogre and the Wifesung by Mary Jo McConnell and Ron DeStefano
Moving Day/Reprise: Little Spacemansung by Jim Poulos, Mary Jo McConnell,
Melissa Rain Anderson, Ron DeStefano & Michael Dantuono

We take the show out on a song by Dave Hudson and Paul Libman’s musical.
DUST AND DREAMS, called Band Shell.

Gregg has been featured previously on MusicalWorld on
episodes MW8 where we featured FIVE COURSE LOVE,
MW77 when we featured RIGHT NEXT TO ME and
MW81 when he was in Dayton, Ohio for a production of RIGHT NEXT TO ME
with his director, Melissa Rain Anderson!

I’m sure we’ll be hearing from Gregg again in the future!

MW 104 – DENNIS LIVINGSTON

Play

MW104 – DENNIS LIVINGSTON – THE STORIES IN MY MINDdennis livingstonWe’re kicking off a new season of MusicalWorld with a bit of a sidestep
from our usual fair…
On this episode I spoke with Dennis Livingston about his newly released CD
entitled “THE STORIES IN MY MIND“.
stories in my mind
A CD of original songs by Boston composer-lyricist Dennis Livingston,
recorded live in a revue at New York’s Metropolitan Room.
The show ran for four performances in 2011 with an outstanding cast of vocalists:
Julie Reyburn (4 time MAC, 2 time Bistro awards), Scott Coulter (Director) (4 time MAC, 4 time Bistro, 2 time Nightlife awards),
Kenneth Gartman (Music Director), Christina Connors and Alex Goley, along with Matt Scharfglass on bass and guitar.

Dennis’ music lends itself, very much so, to the genre of musical theatre.
One listen, and we’re sure you’ll agree!

Dennis’ father, Jerry Livingston, wrote, in addition to many pop standards,
the music for Disney’s Cinderella & one Broadway musical, “Molly” from 1973.

Music included on this episode include:
AN ORDINARY DAY sung by
Julie Reyburn, Scott Coulter (also the Director), Kenneth Gartman (also the Music Director),
Christina Connors & Alex Goley
IT’S TIME FOR ROSES – sung by Julie Reyburn
PUTTIN’ ON SOME FEATHERS sung by Julie Reyburn, Scott Coulter ,
Kenneth Gartman, Christina Connors
& Alex Goley
THE STORIES IN MY MINDsung by Kenneth Gartman & company

THE STORIES OF MY MIND is available for purchase at CD BABY.

MW103  – BURIED – DANIEL KAPLAN

buriedlogo2

On this episode of MusicalWorld, I talked to Daniel Kaplan about his newest work:
BURIED.
“BURIED”‘s story is about Ruth, a math teacher who is able to motivate her
students to their best but suffers from a deficiency of her own, a massive hoarding problem.
When she gets an ultimatum to clean her home or face it being condemned
she calls upon the help of her estranged son and his reluctant fiance.
The cleaning puts everything under pressure as they attempt to save not only their home
but their relationships as well.
The score is a mix of traditional theater and rock opera.

Check out Daniel’s blog: UBERIZED ENTERTAINMENT

Music on this episode (recorded live during a recent reading) includes:
ECHOES – Marcia D’Amelio and cast
QUIET – sung by Nick Perez & Christine Perez
RETURNED – Jason Blank, Marcia D’Amelio, Christine Perez & Nick Perez
SHATTERED GLASS – Jason Blank, Marcia D’Amelio, Christine Perez & Nick Perez
ONE LAST CHANCE – Nick Perez, Christine Perez

Daniel also was featured on MW92… back in April of 2012…
