Lots of things get better with age. Don’t you believe for ONE MINUTE that they don’t.
Speaking of better with age: One of the true pleasures of working with adult singers is that they are at the stage in life where they have the experience to sing the big, juicy songs with integrity. And? Those big juicy songs were written with those big, juicy adult chops in mind, so they can handle the rep technically as well as emotionally.
And just in case you’re wondering exactly what that rep looks like (for women) in the music theatre world? WELL … my friend, Cate Frazier-Neely put together this handy little list. WITH YOUTUBE LINKS #THANKYOUVERYMUCH.
Also? If you love a little noise with your belt-fest rep? Why not try on Me and the Sky for size? It’s a beaut. (and there’s no twenty-five year-old in the WORLD who can sing that sucker with integrity. #fightme)
Enjoy working with those fine wines, my friends.
