With her her milestone episode behind her, on Wednesday afternoon Mel Larch returns on The AIR to brings you a brand-new episode of Curtain Call! You can tune in at the website, or or you could just stay on this page, and listen to the convenient embedded radio player lurking over in the right-hand column of this blog.
At 3 PM on Curtain Call, Mel Larch peers into the future of Broadway with a show filled with tracks from recently-released concept albums, streaming projects, West End productions and more new and exciting material from the world of musical theatre.
The show opens with the title song from Edge of the World, a new musical written by Tony nominee Ethan Slater and Drama Desk nominee Nick Blaemire. Slater was nominated for a Tony for his role as SpongeBob Squarepants, and Blaemire collaborated on “Tick, Tick, Boom.” The just-released recording stars Slater, Blaemire, Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz and Tony nominee Lilli Cooper and tells a story about the isolation that comes with moving to the middle of nowhere.
The rest of the show is filled with tunes from musicals about the 13th century philosopher, Rumi, as well as other new and exciting musical projects, including Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new take on Cinderella. Just check out the playlist:
