Hey everyone! Here's video of me (again) singing Tickle the Ivories from Milo at the Movies, music and lyrics by Mark Gaylord, book by Tom Diggs, at last Saturday's FutureFest at Rockwell Tables & Stage in Los Angeles. I am so grateful to have been a part of this fabulous event put on by the Foundation for New American Musicals and the Open Hydrant Theater Company. Take a look!
Milo at the Movies is an original American musical, with music and lyrics by Mark Gaylord and book by Tom Diggs, based on the historical phenomenon of film lecturers in the 1920’s. The intention of the story is to flip assumptions: the character actor gets the girl, while the beautiful are relegated to supporting players. From this January’s reading at the Goodspeed Opera House, here is Monica Allan reprising her role as Gabby, singing “Tickle the Ivories.”
