nprfreshair:

Stephen Colbert starred in Stephen Sondheim's “Company" (with Martha Plimpton and Neil Patrick-Harris). On Fresh Air today Colbert explains how Sondheim sent him a letter asking him if he would be in the production: 

[He said that] against his instincts, he had a good time on my show [The Colbert Report] and would I consider playing Harry in Company? And he ended the letter with the sentence ‘You have a perfect voice for musical theater.’ And I read it to my wife and she said, ‘Boy, you have to do this. No one, let alone Stephen Sondheim is going to ask you to do Sondheim.’ And I said, ‘You’re right, I have to do it.’


Letterman’s successor Stephen Colbert sang, danced, and attempted some ka-ra-té with the NY Philharmonic in 2011 as Harry in Company. After listening to the NPR story check out our Company rehearsal video from 2011.

What Music Looks Like

You’re looking at Chladni Figures and this experiment dates back to the 17th century. Ernst Chladni was a physicist and a musician who discovered this phenomenon of acoustics. He was also ridiculed by his peers for theorizing that meteorites came from outer space, not from volcanoes. Boy, were those guys wrong! We digress…

It’s hard to believe that single tones can make such beautiful, intricate designs. It makes us wonder what a symphony must look like!
