As BroadwayWorld previously reported, musical theater stars Rachel York and Brent Barrett, reunite for an exclusive two-act concert ISN'T IT ROMANTIC? on Sunday, February 19 at The Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston. They recently sat down with WBGH in Boston to discuss the show, which BroadwayWorld presents below.
York, a Drama Desk and two-time IRNE Award winner, and Barrett, an LA Drama Critics Award winner and Olivier Award nominee, will sing some of their favorite love songs from the stage, screen, and American Songbook.
In this musical Valentine to love and laughter, York (CITY OF ANGELS, LES MISERABLES, VICTOR/VICTORIA, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS) and Barrett (GRAND HOTEL, CHICAGO, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, PHANTOM - LAS VEGAS SPECTACULAR) rekindle the sizzle and spark that stole London's and America's hearts as the battling but still so-in-love exes in KISS ME, KATE.
York is well known to Boston audiences for her touring and pre-Broadway performances in KISS ME KATE, SLY FOX, and THE 101 DALMATIONS MUSICAL. She also earned back-to-back IRNE Awards for her starring roles in Reagle's HELLO, DOLLY! and INTO THE WOODS. Barrett has charmed local theater-goers in recent productions of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at the Cape Playhouse and North Shore Music Theatre. He is currently playing a return engagement on Broadway as the fast-talking legal eagle Billy Flynn in the long-running hit CHICAGO.
