Musicals are the new TV pilots, or so it seemed over the past couple years, as kids music stars no less bright than Laurie Berkner, Justin Roberts, Recess Monkey, and Lunch Money all had (and, I believe, are continuing to have) major roles in new musicals for young audience.
I don't think the trend is stopping, either, as Ben Rudnick is going where the lights are bright... ON BROADWAY!
OK, not really, but his newest album, A Frog Named Sam: A Musical for Children, is released next month, and as you might be able to gather from the album title, it's from a brand-new musical. For children.
Does this musical involve an adventure, a journey? Judging by the album cover (an alien in a spaceship) and this first song, "The Adventure Song," I think that's a safe bet...
