A really warm (in both senses of the word) and fun concert tonight in Portland, my first-ever visit to this beautiful city. A great production of Songs for a New World this afternoon, and then a swell sold-out house tonight for a concert and Q & A (with some really good questions!). Thanks to Chandra Hall and all the folks at Staged! PDX and the Milagro Theater, who did a great job putting all of this together on very short notice.

All Things In Time
I Could Be In Love With Someone Like You
The Old Red Hills Of Home
Long Long Road
King of the World
Being A Geek
Nothing In Common
No Way Now
Over
I’d Give It All For You (I dragged Rebecca Teran, the woman who sang the song so beautifully in the matinee, out of the audience to do the song with me – she KILLED it!)
Caravan Of Angels
Moving Too Fast
Someone To Fall Back On

Then, after the Q & A, I asked the whole Portland cast to come on stage and we all closed out the night with a very heartfelt and gorgeously sung “Hear My Song.”

Bravi to the cast: Rebecca Teran, Elizabeth Klinger, David Cole and Vin Shambry; and extra special yowza yowza to Eric Nordin, who played the shit out of it. Great work from everyone; I was a very proud papa.

[LATE UPDATE: Here are some pictures from the concert and the post-show reception; watch me partying down with the Portland glitterati!]

Next week, workshops in Missoula MT; then working with the cast of “13” in San Diego; teaching at Musical Theatre University in Laguna Beach; and a big concert at Broadway By The Bay in San Mateo CA on 7/24. See you there!
UPDATE: David Kinder posted a wonderful set of photos from the concert on his website. Enjoy!
