MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW
My View: Lots of Be My Love To Sean Patrick Murtagh Last Night

Mario Lanza brought Opera to Hollywood and Sean Patrick Murtagh brought Mario Lanza to the Cabaret World in his solo debut at The Green Room 42 last night.  Sean’s lyric baritone effectively handled the repertoire usually sung by a tenor’s voice and brought a distinctive vivacity to the songs usually associated with Mario Lanza and other celebrated tenors.  Actually this show was about Mario and Richard (not Tucker).  It was a heartfelt tribute to Sean’s vocal teacher Richard who first exposed him to the Mario Lanza songbook.  With his superior musical theater acting skills and charming personality Sean Patrick Murtagh is an exciting addition to the Cabaret World.  Similar to the Metropolitan Opera, The Green Room 42 was full of Bravo’s last night and I was thinking 3 Tenors plus 1 great Lyric Baritone would also make a great performance.  

After the show lots of folks were congratulating and saying “Be My Love” to Sean Patrick Murtagh!
