A Little Something for a Friday

We love many people here at the Studio, of many kinds. And a large chunk of our collective heart is devoted to our New York musical theater folk. There are so very many reasons for this (one of our favorites is best summed up by a line from ‘Spamalot’ – “Broadway is a very special place, filled with very special people – people who can sing and dance – often at the same time!!”), but amongst them is the fact that so many of them seem to spend the time that they’re not being fabulous on a stage making creative, hilarious, equally fabulous things.

So today, since it’s still winter (boo), and a Friday, we thought we’d give you two examples of this. The first is from the delightful and talented Howie Michael Smith (of Avenue Q fame), who, along with his partner in crime Sarah Stiles, has made a series of superfunny youtube videos. Here’s our favorite, in which the duo attempt to demonstrate how to make mulled wine. And then to survive the attempt to make mulled wine (alas, for some reason these videos aren’t embedding today (I blame the weather), so go HERE to view the brilliance)
The second is from the delightful and talented Wesley Taylor (who brilliantly rocked the high notes and the double-polo look in ‘Rock of Ages’, and soon will be treading the boards again in ‘The Addams Family), who has made this hilarious video of an insufferable auditioner (and apparently rounded up all his other cool actor friends to do it). It made us laugh out loud, and cringe at the thought that there probably are people just as crazy at auditions out there every day. So enjoy, and then wish that you were in that audition room! (And again, due to some technical difficulties, HERE is the amazingness)

Happy Friday!
