I entitled this record Simple Song, with a wink and a grin. My aim was to create a theatre album where I could bring the appropriate theatricality to each of these pieces as though I were simply performinig them live and on stage, honoring their respective dramatic situations and contexts. As American classics, I feel these theatre songs demand a certain attention be paid to their design to tell a specific story. I've been lucky enough to enjoy performing a number of these songs on Broadway and have combined them with other pieces that have inspired me to become a better actor and singer. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I... and delight in their complexities.
