BroadwayWorld review:

[…]

Interwoven throughout the narration was music from their best loved musicals, beginning with the choir’s rendition of “It’s a Grand Night of Singing from STATE FAIR and featuring numbers from OKLAHOMA!, CAROUSEL, SOUTH PACIFIC, THE KING AND I, and THE SOUND OF MUSIC. What better songs to showcase the mellifluous pipes of the incomparable Matthew Morrison and Laura Michelle Kelly, reunited after starring together in the original cast of FINDING NEVERLAND? They were featured heavily throughout the evening, including in duets such as “People Will Say We’re in Love” from OKLAHOMA! and such memorable solos as Kelly’s “(When I Marry) Mister Snow” from CAROUSEL and Morrison’s “Younger than Springtime” from SOUTH PACIFIC (which he performed in the Lincoln Center revival).

Both showed a playful side, with Morrison leading the choir and dancing through the title song from OKLAHOMA! and Kelly taking off her shoes and gifting a flower to a choir member in “I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy” from SOUTH PACIFIC.

The highlight of the show was the unexpected inclusion of the “Wedding Processional” in a medley from THE SOUND OF MUSIC that included classic Mormon Tabernacle Choir arrangements of the title song and “Climb Every Mountain.” The scale of the performance of the processional from Richard Elliott at the massive pipe organ with the orchestra and choir was nothing short of thrilling.

The concert ended on a high note with an inspiring finale in which Morrison and Kelly joined the choir and orchestra to perform the anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from CAROUSEL under the breathtaking star-lit sky suspended above them.

 

Matthew Morrison is overwhelmed by the love as he approaches his first Father’s Day.

The Glee star spoke to ET’s Lauren Zima at the 2018 Tony Awards about being a new father and his love of musical theater. Morrison and his wife, Renee, welcomed their son, Revel James Makai Morrison, on Oct. 12, and Morrison is excited at what may be in store for him next Sunday.

“I have no idea what to expect,” he told ET. “I’m sure my wife is drumming up some kind of fun surprises and stuff, but it’s gonna be special.”

Morrison joked that his son has an unusually special talent: insanely fast-growing (and dangerous) fingernails.

“Those fingernails grow so fast and sometimes my wife and I both have scratches on our face or on our arms and stuff and then he scratches his own face,” he said. “I feel like we’re clipping his nails every three days — it’s crazy. ”

But he said that being a father has changed him significantly — and in profound ways.

“The amount of love that I feel — like, I heard this quote the other day about how it feels like your heart is outside of your body and it really is true,” he explained. “I’ve never known this kind of love. It’s a beautiful, euphoric kind of just amazing feeling that I’m just happy. I’m happy my son chose me. ”

Morrison was also thrilled to be back at the Tony Awards. Morrison himself is a past nominee, for his role in the musical The Light in the Piazza in 2005 and said that musical theater is his home.

“I was thinking about it on the car ride over here like my first tony awards that I got to be at and performed at was when I was doing Hairspray,” he said. It was 15 years ago and thankfully, they keep asking me to come back and this is home for me. I love this community and um the people and I love, I love live performances and live theater so it’s amazing to be here.”

SALT LAKE CITY — For this year’s Pioneer Day celebrations, former Broadway co-stars Matthew Morrison and Laura Michelle Kelly will perform with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square during the annual Broadway-themed “Music for a Summer Evening” concert.

The event will take place Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21, at 8 p.m. in the Conference Center. Mack Wilberg, music director of the choir, and Ryan Murphy, associate music director, will be conducting.

Morrison and Kelly starred in the original 2015 Broadway cast of “Finding Neverland,” based on the true story of Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie, who created the beloved literary character Peter Pan. Morrison played the role of Barrie and Kelly starred opposite him as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, a widow whose four boys helped inspire the playful Pan.

“Matthew Morrison and Laura Michelle Kelly are extraordinary performers who have a dynamic chemistry onstage that will delight our audiences,” Mormon Tabernacle Choir president Ron Jarrett said in a press release. “We know they will bring down the house when they perform with the choir and Orchestra at Temple Square!”

Former “Glee” star Matthew Morrison is best-known for his role as Mr. Schuester in the popular musical comedy-drama TV series, which ran from 2009-2015, but is also a well-known actor, dancer, singer and songwriter. Over the years, he has performed on both Broadway and television, earning along the way multiple nominations for Grammy, Emmy, Tony and Golden Globe awards.

Laura Michelle Kelly is perhaps best-known for her Laurence Olivier Award-winning performance as Mary Poppins in the West End musical based on the 1964 Disney film. She has appeared in many West End and Broadway productions, in the 2007 film adaptation of “Sweeney Todd” and has performed in many of the U.K.’s notable concert halls.

The choir will also welcome back Oscar “Andy” Hammerstein III, grandson of the famed lyricist and musical theater producer Oscar Hammerstein II, to narrate the concert and speak on his family’s connection to Broadway.

Previous featured guest artists at the annual concert include Alex Boye in 2017, The King’s Singers in 2016, Laura Osnes in 2015, Santino Fontana in 2014, Nathan Pacheco and Lindsey Stirling in 2013, Katherine Jenkins in 2012, and Linda Eder and Brian Stokes Mitchell in 2011.

Morrison and Kelly will also sing with the choir during their weekly Music and the Spoken Word broadcast on Sunday, July 22, in the Conference Center — no ticket required.

How do you get tickets?

“Tickets for the concert are free and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Tuesday, June 5, 2018, at 10 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time, through lds.org/events or by phone at 801-570-0080. Each patron may request four tickets, and admission is open to those ages 8 and older. Patrons without tickets are encouraged to join the standby line by the flagpole on Temple Square for last-minute seating, which is often available,” according to the press release.

The performance will also be live-streamed on mormontabernaclechoir.org at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 21, as well as via the church satellite system and on BYUtv.
