STORM REPORT: Storm Large might have, not one, but two Broadway shows in her near future.
Yes, it's looking very likely that Storm Large will soon begin rehearsal in Los Angeles on a musical review of composer Randy Newman's music entitled Harps and Angels.
According to a quick Google search, it's the "Story of America, in Music" through Newman's tunes. The composer behind several of today's most popular soundtracks (Toy Story, Parenthood, The Natural), Harps and Angels culls from Newman back catalogue of hits to tell an original story about the American experience. The show is scheduled to premiere on November 11 at the Mark Taper Forum.
Now, if the show eventually goes East to New York, Large will be faced with the fact that both her own show, Crazy Enough, and Harps and Angels could both be Broadway bound—at the same time. But that's something to think about tomorrow. For now, Large is just getting to know the dude who penned the classic, Short People. Newman even suggested to Storm that he'd like to rework her "vagina" song, 8 Miles Wide, into his own version. "I feel a change coming on," laughed Newman.
Nothing is official yet, and the final cast has to be announced, but it sure looks like our girl Storm will have a very busy fall.
