Matthew Morrison Sizzles at Feinstein’s/54 Below
POSTED ON Jan 09, 2018 BY Valentina INNews,Video

Matthew Morrison, is known for starring in Glee, but long before that he treaded the boards of Broadway in Hairspray, The Light in the Piazza, South Pacific and most recently Finding Neverland. Now he is performing at Feinstein’s/54 Below until January 13th and this is a show not to miss. Morrison exudes a natural sex appeal. He claims in his show, that Feinstein’s/54 Below is the sexiest room, but this is the sexiest show, as Morrison seduces his audience with charisma galore. Starting off with a crooning “Nice N Easy,” Morrison entered from the front of the room, making audience members swoon with joy as he passed their table. Sounding and oozing the same charge, that Frank Sinatra did. His smooth stylings gave way to a man with a heart, when a young girl almost fainted with glee, was allowed a selfie with him. I have never seen anyone as delighted as this girl was. All night the cell camera’s were zoomed in so as not to miss a moment.

Next up was a sinful “On The Street Where You Live.” All I can say is if the revival of My Fair Lady has this version, it is sure to smolder.

Father to 12-week-old son Revel James Makail, John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change” brought lyrics that really affected the singer, but it was “As Long As He Needs Me” from Oliver that his emotional ties to his son came through. The arrangement had Jimmy Emerson on flute and it added to the plaintiveness of the song. Also on “Waiting on the World to Change” there were some mean solos by Emerson on Sax and Daniel Kalischer on guitar.

Bill Withers “Ain’t No Sunshine” showed off the singers dancing skills, as well as some soul. Morrison feeds off the energy of his fans as he gyrated with a sinewy grace. During the song his hand slide down the mike as if making love to it and I can guarantee most of the audience wished it was them instead of that mike.

In “Hey There” from Pajama Game, Morrison oozed boyish charm as he played the ukulele. This was in tribute to his first gig as a back-up singer for Don Ho.

Brad Ellis, the arranger from Glee, is Morrison’s musical director and played the keys, but it was his arrangement of Cole Potter’s “It’s Alright With Me” that rocked the house. Morrison pulled some Bob Fosse moves that shook the house. Bass player Gary Wicks and drummer Pete Antunes also showed mad skills.

“We Kiss In The Shadow” was Morrison’s tribute to gay marriage and what life was like before acceptance.

His South Pacific medley made me want to see his performance and made me realize what a talented musician this man truly is.

Nominated for a Tony Award for his performance as Fabrizio in The Light In The Piazza “Il Mondo Era Vuoto,” was my favorite of the night. Stating “that show was the hardest I’ve ever done. It’s also the highlight of my career,” he vocally soared. It is in a more classical sound, that Morrison impresses and impress he does.

Keeping us up to date with the shows he has performed in, a Finding Neverland medley followed. A nine-minute Hairspray medley had Morrison rocking and rolling. It is clear he has a complete love for this show.

“Come Rain or Come Shine/ Basin Street Blues” allowed the whole band to show off. Morrison surrounds himself with some of best musicians and the caliber of this show is exceptional. For opening night Morrison’s guest was his wife Renee and the curtain call number was a medley of two Beatle songs for the girl who has knitted his young sons caps.

Morrison is personable and makes sure that everyone has a great seat and a fabulous time. His humor is a little sarcastic, but with a devilish charm.  Morrison has that “it” factor and has talent galore. How Broadway hasn’t snatched him up to star in a role written for him is beyond puzzling. Do not miss this show as it is one of the best I have seen in a long time.

It’s official: Everyone is a fan of The Bachelor and Bachelorette. Matthew Morrison spoofs the hit ABC franchise in his latest film After the Reality, and Us Weekly has a sneak peek. Watch the video above!

In the film, Morrison plays a contestant named Scottie who is vying for the heart of the Bachelorette, played by Laura Bell Bundy. After Scottie’s dad dies, he quits the competition and is reunited with his sister, played by Sarah Chalke.

“When I was in Hairspray on Broadway, Trista and Ryan Sutter visited the production. It was right after their final episode aired, and they just seemed so down to earth, an incredible couple,” he recalled. “That was when, I assume, the show was fresh and truly about finding a connection with someone. But I think most people who go on these shows have to be a little lost and in search of some fulfillment. That’s the attitude and naïveté I brought into the character of Scottie.”

“Tulip Fever” new trailer
POSTED ON Apr 25, 2017 BY Valentina INNews,Video

New trailer for “Tulip Fever”, in theatres in August 2017.

A Glee-ful time was had on the set of the new drama, After the Reality, when Matthew Morrison reunited with his old McKinley High nemesis, Jane Lynch. Fortunately, this time around, the erstwhile Will Schuester and Sue Sylvester are friends, rather than foes. Lynch appears in a small cameo as a doctor who tends to an injury that Morrison’s character Scottie received during his time on a Bachelorette-esque reality series. He’s also recovering from wounds of an emotional sort: His father passed away while he was pursuing true televised love, necessitating his early exit from the show. (Watch an exclusive clip of this Glee reunion above.)

“It was a little odd doing a scene with Jane, and not trying to rip each other’s hair out,” Morrison tells Yahoo Movies via e-mail about his and Lynch’s onscreen dynamic in After the Reality, which will be released on iTunes and other VOD platforms on April 25. “But the chemistry with her always holds up.” According to Reality writer-director David Anderson, Lynch wasn’t his first choice to play the doctor. “It was originally written for a tottering woodsman of a Norman Rockwell painting,” Anderson writes via e-mail. Instead, his leading man, who doubles as the film’s executive producer, personally orchestrated the Glee reunion.

“Jane and Matthew have a chemistry that’s sweetly sibling,” the filmmaker adds. “I told them to not worry about the lines, they know what we need to communicate and we just let the camera roll.” And Lynch — no stranger to riffing thanks to her regular collaborations with Christopher Guest — took the director’s instructions to heart, improvising with Morrison like they used to do back in their Glee days. “What was left on the editing floor was such a shame,” Anderson writes.

Broadway star and Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) alum Matthew Morrison dropped by his alma mater to rehearse with students for OCSA’s 30th Anniversary Season Premiere this Saturday at Balboa Bay Resort. I had the opportunity to sit down with him and talk in-depth about the balancing act it takes to be a Broadway leading man, his time on “Hairspray,” “Glee,” and “Finding Neverland,” as well as what it means to him to give back to the OCSA.
