Josh Groban Discusses Making His B’way Dreams Come True

first_imgJosh Groban has yet to make his Broadway debut (what’s up with that?), but that’s not stopping him from crooning a bunch of show tunes on his latest album, Stages! The set list includes numbers from musicals he saw as a kid with his family—including The Phantom of the Opera and Sunday in the Park with George, as well as songs he’s sung on stage previously, including “Anthem” from Chess. And while they don’t appear in the video, the album will feature duets with both familiar and unexpected faces, including six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald and three-time Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson (who recently hinted at her involvement). Stages will be released on April 28. In the meantime, take a look at the video featurette below, and join us in dream-casting the hell out of Josh Groban on the Great White Way!
