Brent Carver/Carolee Carmello,
Parade - Original Broadway Cast Recording
I saw a production of Parade last night put on by the MFA students in the Brown University/Trinity Rep consortium. There was a lot to like about the production (and a lot that’s forgivable in that way one forgives students for taking risks with shows that one would never take in a production that needed to make money and/or run).
But one thing I definitely came away with was a renewed appreciation for the skill and artistry of Carolee Carmello. It seems like all of Lucille’s music is written exactly at the “break” between chest and head voice, but I never noticed that on the recording because Carolee is just that good.
