Ky’s Top 10 Kelsey Theatre Moments of 2014

December 2014

 

4 – Julianna Zannikos, Kim Cupo and Caroline Purdy Singing “I Know It’s Today” in Shrek the Musical

Shrek the Musical. You either hate it, or you love it. But no matter what your opinion of the show is, there is no denying that the song “I Know It’s Today” is one of the most beautiful songs written for musical theater over the past 10 years.

It’s a gorgeous song, and I was very fortunate to be able to hear three beautiful young women sing this song to perfection every single day. Julianna, Kim and Caroline rocked this song out every rehearsal and performance. Laurie Gougher staged the song perfectly, and Peter de Mets musically directed the song so well that people often bring up that moment to me when the show is discussed. Awesome job!
