Episode #9: Celia Keenan-Bolger is Broadway’s newest “it” girl, and if you’ve seen her perform, you know why. Yes, she has a great voice, but she also brings enormous charm, intelligence, and creativity to everything she does (including party games!). A Tony-nominee for her beautiful performance as Olive in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Celia has worked with most, if not all, of the new composers writing today. If a musical has had a recent pre-Broadway workshop or recording or concert, Celia was one of the leads in it. Check out all the cute pictures of her at Broadway World!
Today, she sings “Toll,” a song written for a never-produced revuesical which explored themes of traveling. Music and lyrics are by me. Recorded 2/6/06. Meanwhile, if you haven’t seen Celia in the wonderful …Spelling Bee, quit stalling and go! Also, check out the original cast recording.
(I tried in vain to find the rules for Running Charades online. If you have them handy, send me an email, and I’ll post them or link to them! Otherwise, if you’re desperate to know the rules of the game, let me know, and if I get enough emails about it, I’ll write out the rules myself.)
