What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Forbidden Broadway: Special Victims Unit / Gerard Alessandrini
Forbidden Broadway: Special Victims Unit There's a kitschy 50s-looking diner at the corner of 51st Street and Broadway, a short walk from several Broadway theaters. It's called Ellen's Stardust Diner, and it's a fun place for a comfort food sort of meal. Downstairs from the diner is a little theater where a sort of Off Broadway (but really on) troupe performs parodies of the current scene on the Great White Way. And depending on the season, what's going on at Forbidden Broadway can be a lot funnier than the real thing.

Special Victims Unit is the eighth CD of Forbidden parodies. Sadly, it's the only one available on the iTMS. And unless you're familiar with current plays like Wicked, I Am My Own Wife or Movin' Out, the jokes may not make a lot of sense. I hope the earlier volumes show up here before long. The takeoff on Les Miz in volume 2 is brilliant, as are the recreations of Rent and Ragtime in volumes 4 and 5, respectively. And they're fun even if the only Tonys you know are on The Sopranos.
