A couple days ago, I mentioned coming across a musical from last year, First Date, and embedded one. As I said, thought the few songs I'd heard were sort of enjoyable, written by Alan Zachary and Michel Weiner -- not what I'd refer to as distinguished, and with somewhat of a sameness in style, but fairly clever and fun. This video is an appropriate way to not only offer a couple other songs from the show, but prepare you for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
When NBC broadcasts the parade, they stick to the outdoors. And when presenting a number from a Broadway musical, they either have the stars sing from their float, or let the cast perform from a "spotlight" area if it's a production number. CBS handles things differently -- they keep a theater at their disposal and often cut away for lengthy productions.
And that's what they did for First Date. So, we get to see a couple of songs on stage. The first features the small company and is, I believe, the opening number from the show. It's followed by the two leads, Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
