We appreciate your support!
Thursday is the day of the week when McElrath Cabaret features some of our favorite cabaret blogs, websites or performers. Today we’re featuring a series of entertainment videos that offer several performers that cross the lines between musical theatre, cabaret, and songwriting, and the series is called InnerVIEWS. I happily discovered this the other day when I was surfing around on You Tube looking for great videos for the blog. InnerVIEWS is produced by Houston PBS, and it includes interviews with not only singers and songwriters, but also actors and others active in the entertainment industry. As of today, there are 147 InnerVIEWS video interviews listed!
There are several videos that the cabaret and musical theatre lover would find of interest here.
Four-time Tony-award winner Audra McDonald:
Love that she says there is no difference in how she approaches a song as an actor or singer!
Another Tony winner who recently did a cabaret show at 54 Below in New York City, Patti LuPone:
Love that she says that she hates film and TV actors coming to Broadway–thank you, Patti! It’s a different type of training needed.
And one of my favorites, who has penned several songs that stand alone very well in cabaret shows, Jerry Herman:
I love that he still feels like a kid from New Jersey, and is overwhelmed at times by how far he has been able to go!
If you are dealing with a heatwave, pour yourself a glass of sweet tea, turn on the a/c and settle in for some great interviews. I highly recommend InnerVIEWS!
