On this week’s episode, the Friends talked to musician and actor Josh Groban (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), who is about to release a new album called Harmony in November. But before that happens, he’s doing a series of live virtual concerts, where he will be performing new songs and taking requests from his back catalogue. The first of those concerts on Oct. 3 will be Broadway themed so get your show-tune requests ready now! Groban called in to talk about creating music and finding faith during the pandemic.
Here are links to the things they talked about this week:
- The Bail Project
- Romantics Anonymous by Emma Rice, Christopher Dimond, and Michael Kooman—presented at the Old Vic.
- Josh Groban’s newest song: “Your Face.”
- A classic Groban song: “You Raise Me Up.”
- A very prescient Groban song, written by the late Adam Schlesinger: “End of the Movie.”
- Info about Groban’s next livestream concerts
- This week’s Patreon shoutout: Mike Sablone, whose company the Warehouse Theatre in Greenville, S.C., are doing a Zoom piece called Objectivity. It’s a Zoom seminar run by a “famous” decluttering expert that doesn’t go as planned. It’s part seminar, part interactive show, and part musical. It runs Sept. 30-Oct. 17. Break a leg, Mike!
