Broadway Karaoke Series
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a compilation of popular Broadway tunes from beloved musicals such as Wicked and Les Miserables, and although there might be heavy content (death, war, etc.) within the full context and production of some of these musicals, the tunes highlighted here are fine for all ages. It's a fun way to teach your kids about Broadway songs that you've grown up with too.
What's the story?
From the best-selling Disney Karaoke Series comes the new BROADWAY KARAOKE SERIES, featuring beloved Broadway tunes from classic shows, The Sound of Music, Annie, Wicked, Oliver, Les Miserables, Bye Bye Birdie, Into the Woods, and West Side Story. The 16-track album (8 instrumental, 8 vocal) highlights songs written by famed Broadway composers Rodgers and Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim, among others. Visual elements for karaoke reguire a CD+G compatible player, but the audio will play on most CD players.
Is it any good?
If you didn't already know the song "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Mis (thanks to the notorious, furry-browed Britain's Got Talent superstar Susan Boyle), now you can know it, and sing it to your heart's content, along with seven other Broadway classics such as "Tomorrow" from Annie or "Popular" from the smash-hit Wicked. Broadway Karaoke Series will give karaoke-lovers a reason to shout and Broadway fans a fun, easy way to learn or just sing along to their favorite Great White Way tunes.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about how Broadway has changed over the years, and if they think it has been affected by the growth of media and the Internet, as many other artforms have been. Do you think there is still enough interest in going to sit in a theater and see a live musical or play? Will technology ever change that?
