Randy Newman revue opens at the Taper
November 12, 2010
The music of Oscar-winning composer and songwriter Randy Newman anchors “Harps and Angels,” a new stage production at the Music Center’s Mark Taper Forum, also premiering this week. Titled after Newman’s recent album – his first new collection of songs after more than a decade of prolific soundtrack work – the show offers a seasoned ensemble of performers the opportunity to dip into Newman’s vast catalogue of songs from the last five decades. Included are popular hits like “I Love LA” and “Short People,” as well as many lesser-known gems that are by turns wry, bitter and poignant.
