With his latest album, 'Stages,' consisting exclusively of songs from Broadway musicals, it seems apparent that the singer/songwriter's Broadway debut was never far from his mind, but the doesn't necessarily mean Josh Groban is excited to take on the challenge. In a recent interview the 34-year-old California native joked that despite his openly discussing the subject, the reality of taking on something like 'Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812' seemed overwhelming to him. Groban explained, however, that he is combatting his pre-show jitters by practicing for the part relentlessly.
It's been announced that Josh Groban will make his Broadway debut in none other than Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, which plans to return to New York in September 2016. Directed by Rachel Chavkin, the production is an interpretation of a section of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace.
Josh Groban and Kelly Clarkson are made for each other in their cover of "All I Ask of You" from 'The Phantom of the Opera'. Say what you will about Andrew Lloyd Webber, this PBS performance is worth a few listens. The performance initially saw light on Groban's latest album 'Stages'. He and Clarkson performed the 'Phantom' hit with ease, with Clarkson venturing into a new area with her voice.
International superstar, Josh Groban, was heading for an astounding eighth top 10 album of the Billboard 200 chart. His latest album, Stages, was poised to take a seat in in the top five but failed to claim its seed.
