It started off kinda normal and then just went WAY out there!
I was singing with a group from Metro Voices in a rehearsal for the soundtrack recording on the new “Sweeney Todd” movie. It was great to work with Paul Gemignani (who is Stephen Sondheim’s “right-hand-man”) as the MD and also Sean Alderking (who I haven’t seen in ages) along with a number of my session singing chums – but then, during the rehearsal I was asked to be the stand-in for Johnny Depp.
Not just there for the rehearsal today, but for all the rehearsals whilst the man himself is away filming!! COOL!!
I’m really excited to get the chance not only to sing the role, but also to work with Tim Burton directing, and others such as Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter (and of course the lovely Laura Michelle Kelly again) What an opportunity… I will keep you posted,
I’ve gotta get learning the score!!!
