Happy New Year 2021!!!
Last year, musical Love Quirks almost opened off-Broadway after 10 years of development. Previews started Friday, February 28th, 2020 and the official opening was supposed to be Monday, March 16th, and will be rescheduled for later in 2021. Find out more information about the show on Playbill Online or Broadway World, and here are interviews I did with the SaysMeSaysMom & Un-Block the Music blogs about the show. Additionally, Maggie and I got to perform the song, “The Circle” at Birdland’s Cast Party right before things shut down, and you can see that here!
Furthermore, I’m happy to announce we are recorded the Love Quirks Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording last fall! To that end, we did a benefit concert of my Self-Isolation Song Cycle on Thursday, September 10th, 2020 at 7PM on FB/YT Live. You can watch it HERE!! The album will be out soon!
With Don’t Tell Mama poised to reopen in May, I have retired from virtual showcases. I produced 44, featuring 232 singers streaming live from 35 states and 7 countries, and I am now selling the 442 accompaniment tracks I created for only $5: here. You can also watch the virtual showcases forever at: tinyurl.com/sethbhdotcom. I am back weekly at Don’t Tell Mama Tuesdays at 7PM starting May 4th, 2021!!! Visit the Showcase page to see who is performing and for the list of the 3,000 performers who have previously joined me since 2007 and here’s an interview I did after one in 2019 and a review of the 550th Showcase, which was a Jerry Herman Cabaret.
During the self-isolation, I virtually performed many times a week and put out 125 performances in 2020! First, I had 30 episodes of my Facebook Live show “The Making of a Musical: Exploring Love Quirks“. Now I’m doing a new one about my other projects Mondays at 3pm called “Seth Sings Bisen-Hersh”. While we were under the stay-at-home order, I also put out twelve new songs about quarantine in my Self-Isolation Song Cycle. You can watch the whole set: here! Additionally, for 15 Thursdays, my friend Kelly and I put up a talk show called “What Day Is It!?! with Seth & Kelly”. Sunday nights, my fiancée and I put out Zumba videos for small apartments, and we are continuing to do this monthly in 2021. Even if you can’t do Zumba well, you can at least take solace in the fact that neither can I. Those are available at (and I highly recommend watching her birthday surprise!): tinyurl.com/SethEmiStreetZumba.
We re-released our Get Out the Vote Video from 2018 last November 2020. You can hear me overdub TV star Mario Lopez at the end to change the date!
If that wasn’t enough for you: the third season of my podcast will premiere June 2021! You can listen to the 26 episodes from the first 2 seasons here: Millennials are Ruining the World? an Xennial perspective: Real conversations bridging the gap between Generations X & Y, “I’m not woke, but I’m awake” is available on SoundCloud, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, TuneIn and Pocket Casts.
The audiobook version (featuring myself as narrator!) of my third book: Millennials are Ruining the World! is now available on Audible, HERE!!!!
Also, I am thrilled to announce that I am now a published crossword puzzle writer! My debut puzzle in the LA Times, 9/23/19 is available as a PDF on my Puzzle page. Enjoy!
Additionally, I started doing some standup in 2019. Here are videos from me at Gotham Comedy Club: here and Broadway Comedy Club, here and here! While I’m presenting videos, August 2019 I got a little bored so I did this cute Muppet Green Acres video: Enjoy! In other comedy news, I’m now a graduate of UCB having had completed their core Long-Form Improv program.
In 2019, I launched my Performer Page where you can find videos of standup, monologues, scenes and a still from the first feature film I shot!
So happy to announce that “Enough Already” from The Diamond as Big as the Ritz was selected out of almost 200 songs as a finalist for London’s prestigious Stiles & Drewe Prize!! If you didn’t see the Get Out the Vote music video of it starring Mario Lopez last October, you can view it, here. Speaking of it, after successful industry readings in November 2017 and June 2018, we recorded the studio casting recording of my musical, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz. You can purchase it on iTunes or Amazon, and it’s also streaming on most platforms. There are also videos of some of the songs on the Song Videos page.
