Musical fans, meet Seth Rudetsky. Watch him (YT links) deconstruct "Turkey Lurkey" and Barbra Streisand or accompany Raul Esparza on "Defying Gravity." Learn from his Broadway 101 parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6a and 6b.

Seth's a great (and VERY FUNNY) guy.

He's a funny, funny man, and mad-talented. I have bootleg VHS copies of several of his annual Actor's Fund benefit concerts. He also posts a lot on All That Chat, one of the best Broadway gossip boards.

And here's the full version of "Turkey Lurkey Time", the song he's screening in his video. It's from "Promises, Promises", which was the late 1960's Burt Bacharach musical version of the Billy Wilder movie "The Apartment". Sooooo gooood, but alas, bad video quality.
