PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Motown Actress and Soul Singer Morgan James Shares Her Musical Inspirations
04 Sep 2013
"Dream Variations" (The classicist: Audra McDonald). I would be remiss if I didn't mention one of my theatre inspirations and the reason I wanted to attend The Juilliard School — Audra McDonald. I was/am obsessed with her first two records and wore them OUT! I will always love her pure, clear, soulful art song singing — she reminds me to keep studying (and I do).
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
