James Corden Has An Epic Broadway Riff-Off With Neil Patrick Harris — Causing One Of Them To Split Their Pants!
On Monday, the Series of Unfortunate Events star stopped by the Late Late Show where he bullied the host into facing off against him in an epic show tunes riff-off!
After NPH mocked Corden for winning a Tony for a non-singing role, the British late night host had no choice but to battle the Broadway veteran in a high stakes (and high note) competition!
Backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Corden kicked off singing Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat from Guys and Dolls, to which Harris responded back with Everything's Coming Up Roses from Gypsy.
In between hurling intimidating trash talk at one another, Corden and Harris then belted out tunes from Company, Les Miserables, and a particularly sexy number from Chicago.
But when the time came for the pair to duet on My Shot from Hamilton, Harris' riff-off turned into a RIP off. When they returned from commercial break, the How I Met Your Mother alum confessed:
Take That, Donald Trump! Rosie O'Donnell & More Are Holding A Benefit Concert At The Same Time As The Inauguration!
This is as amazing as it is hilarious!
On Friday, it was revealed a bunch of celebrities and entertainers will be holding a benefit concert in New York two weeks from now… at the EXACT SAME TIME as Donald Trump's dreaded January 20 inauguration!!
According to the press release, Concert For America will be highlighting the "diversity and hope that is America at its best."
We can't think of a better message, especially considering we all know how much Drumpf loves diversity!
The Broadway-led benefit's full message of inspiration reads:
"By bringing together this spectacular group of artists to celebrate the diversity and hope that makes America its best, we hope this concert will lift spirits and remind people across the country that we are stronger united and our voices will be heard over the next four years."
Sounds amazing! We especially like how the bash will be streamed LIVE on Facebook for those who can't be there in person!
As for the event's attendees, celebs like Rosie O'Donnell,
Carrie Fisher Was Planning A Followup To Her One Woman Show Wishful Drinking — Get The Tragic Details
We still can't believe she's gone!
Following the star's passing, Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Fisher was planning
Charming goes a long way but without more it's not enough to ignite passion or excitement in theatergoers.
The show's music, written by Daniel Messé is serviceable but lacks grandness. A lot of that probably had to do with the rather pedestrian musical direction from Kimberly Grigbsy. Better orchestrations could have lifted the songs a lot!
More lift is definitely needed throughout the show - and not just sonically. The "big opening number" isn't very big. And if you're going for intimate, Broadway's not the best place for that!
Adam Chanler-Berat is a great actor and singer, but he did not fit the part of the male love interest. He's a Mark in a Rent - a role he's we've seen him do - and he was playing too much against type here, to the detriment of the show.
THANKFULLY, Amélie is worth seeing if for no other reason than Phillipa Soo. We first encountered her in 2013 when we saw her off-Broadway in The Great Comet. In this review, we called her "stunning". A little show called Hamilton happened since then and she is now a bonafide leading lady of the great white way.
Her skills are powerful and plentiful!
A big, brilliant voice and that indescribable "it factor". She radiates every moment she's on stage! And, our favorite parts of the show were when Soo was just by herself singing.
Amélie won't be the cultural sensation that Hamilton was, but fans of Phillipa will leave the theater very pleased with her performance.
P.S. The show feels too long to be performed without an intermission. Hopefully they fix that by the time they arrive in New York!
