“This holiday concert is a homecoming for our entire New York Pops family—our musicians, PopsEd students, subscribers and donors—and I’m so glad we get to celebrate our return with the incomparable Laura Benanti,” said New York Pops Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke. “I can’t wait to see you there!”

Tony® Award-winner and five-time Tony® Award nominee Laura Benanti is a highly celebrated stage and screen actress.

Benanti can currently be seen in HBO Max’s much awaited Gossip Girl reboot. Eight years after the original series, the new show addresses just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed. Benanti also reprised her role on the final season of the hit TV series Younger, starring opposite Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff. The final season premiered on April 15th, 2021 and was just renewed for a second season.

Most recently, Benanti starred in Sara Colangelo’s Worth starring opposite Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci and Amy Ryan. The drama, acquired by Michelle and Barack Obama’s production company Higher Ground, premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Set in the aftermath of 9/11, Worth follows lawyers Kenneth Feinberg and Camille S. Biros facilitating the implementation of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. Benanti stars as a mother figuring out the best way to honor her late firefighting husband. The film is currently streaming on Netflix.

Additionally, Benanti will next be seen in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tick, Tick… Boom! for Netflix. The film is an adaptation of the autobiographical Off-Broadway show written by Johnathon Larson, who is best known for writing the award-winning musical Rent.

Benanti recently starred in the film Here Today opposite Billy Crystal and Tiffany Haddish. The comedy follows veteran comedy writer Charlie Berns (Crystal) slowly losing his grip on reality before meeting talented street singer Emma Payge (Haddish). Recently acquired by Sony Pictures’ Stage 6 Films, the comedy is set for release in US theaters on May 7th of this year.

Also, Benanti appeared as a guest star on the Showtime series Cinema Toast created by Jeff Baena and produced by the Duplass Brothers. Cinema Toast is a post-modernist reinvention of older movies that turns pre-existing imagery from the public domain on its head to tell brand new unique stories. In addition to Benanti, the episodes are voiced by actors including Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Fred Armisen, Christina Ricci, Megan Mullally, Chris Meloni among others. Additionally, on Showtime, Benanti will be seen as a guest star in the highly anticipated variety show Ziwe featuring comedian Ziwe Fumudoh. The series will premiere on May 9th.

In 2020, Benanti created and executive produced the HBO Max special, Homeschool Musical: Class of 2020, an unscripted musical special featuring students from across the U.S. The self-shot documentary-style film shines a light on personal experiences and incredible musical talent through performances of well-known songs that organically express their emotions.

Additionally, Benanti released a self-titled studio album for Sony Music Masterworks. The album is comprised of contemporary covers (“Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi and “Lose You to Love Me” by Selena Gomez), jazz influenced torch songs and comedic takes on beloved favorites. In 2018, Benanti produced the children’s album, “Singing You Home – Children’s Songs for Family Reunification” in which all proceeds are donated to reuniting families separated at the border. The seven song album features stand-out artists including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ingrid Michaelson, Kristin Chenoweth, Cynthia Erivo, Idina Menzel among others.

In the publishing space, Benanti recently co-authored the comedic children’s board book M is for MAMA (and also Merlot): A Modern Mom’s ABCs, co-written with Metropolitan Opera Star Kate Mangiameli. The irreverent board book provides laughter, reassurance, confidence, honesty — and perhaps even a moment of relaxation — for expectant new, and not-so-new, moms. M is for Mama has received high praise from celebrity parents including Amy Schumer, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Connie Britton, calling it the new “go-to gift for new mothers” as well as being “funny, touching and original.”

Over the course of the last year, Benanti frequently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in her celebrated comedic portrayal of First Lady Melania Trump. Additional television credits include series regular roles on the Samantha Bee and Jason Jones produced TBS show The DetourGo On opposite Matthew Perry, Starved for FX, as well as recurring roles on Supergirl, ABC’s Nashville and Eli Stone, CBS’ The Good Wife and Elementary, Showtime’s Nurse Jackie and The Big C, NBC’s The Sound of Music LiveLaw and Order: SVU and USA’s Royal Pain.

In 2019, Benanti made a triumphant return to Broadway as Eliza Doolittle in Lincoln Center’s acclaimed production of My Fair Lady. Since making her Broadway debut at the young age of 18 as Maria in The Sound of Music opposite Richard Chamberlain, Benanti has wowed audiences in numerous musicals and plays, such as Steve Martin’s hit Broadway play, Meteor Shower, where she costarred alongside Amy Schumer and Keegan Michael Key. Other Broadway roles include Amalia Balash in She Loves Me, for which she was nominated for Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards. Benanti was also nominated for a Tony Award, and won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, for her starring role in the Broadway production of Women On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown for Lincoln Center Theatre.

Benanti earned the 2008 Tony® Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical, a Drama Desk Award, and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her revelatory portrayal of Louise in Gypsy opposite Patti LuPone. She also starred in the Broadway production of Sarah Ruhl’s In the Next Room or The Vibrator PlayThe Wedding SingerNine (starring Antonio Banderas), her Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award-nominated performance of Cinderella in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, and her Tony® nominated turn in Swing!

Other distinguished theater performances include the Public Theater’s production of Christopher Durang’s Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them, Perdita in The Winter’s Tale at the Williamstown Theatre Festival opposite Kate Burton, Anne in A Little Night Music at LA Opera opposite Victor Garber, Eileen in Wonderful Town opposite Donna Murphy, and Rosabella in The Most Happy Fella, both for City Center Encores!

The Glorious Corner

G.H. Harding

YOUNG’S 12 — (via Ultimate Classic Rock) Since he began making records in the 60’s, Neil Young has seldom let a year or two pass between albums. Even as the last LP by Buffalo Springfield was being prepped for release, the Canadian singer-songwriter was making his self-titled solo debut, which came out just a few months later.

Young has never been reluctant to follow his creative muse, even if he’s in the middle of another project. More than one time during his career he’s shelved a project just to move on to something else. Sometimes – as in the case of Homegrown and Chrome Dreams – those records would be released at a later (sometimes much later) date; in other instances, we’re still waiting.

All this productivity and activity can lead to periods of inconsistency, as you’ll see in the below list of the 12 Worst Neil Young Albums. One era in particular stands out: the ’80s (spoiler: Six successive albums during the decade make the list). But LPs from the ’60s, ’70s, ’90s and the ’00s are here, too.When you’re as prolific as Young, they can’t all be After the Gold Rush and Harvest. Even when the records didn’t reach his usual standards, most of them still found new ways to continue on the restless path he started in the mid-’60s. From synth-pop and traditional country to ’50 rock ‘n’ roll and horn-spotted soul, Young’s instincts rarely took him to expected destinations.

Are You Passionate?’ (2002)

Young’s 24th album was supposed to be another Crazy Horse collaboration, Toast, which didn’t get released until 2022. Instead, he pivoted to a record with Booker T. & the MG’s that was billed as a soul album and included Young’s response to 9/11, “Let’s Roll.” One of the shelved Crazy Horse tracks is included, and it concludes with a nine-minute jam. Scant direction and thin songs sink Are You Passionate?

‘Peace Trail’ (2016)

Young’s 36th studio LP was sandwiched between a live album with Promise of the Real and a solo archival release recorded in 1976. Both are preferable to this quickly assembled record made with drummer Jim Keltner and bassist Paul Bushnell. Its political points are similar to the ones he’d been supporting since the ’60s, but now with a technological lean (there’s even some Auto-Tune on a track). Instantly disposable.

‘Storytone’ (2014)

The second of two albums released by Young in 2014 (the first was the solo acoustic A Letter Home), Storytone featured big band and orchestral backings to songs inspired by a new romance with actress Daryl Hannah. Forgettable and uncertain – swing and classical don’t mix all that well – the album arrived during a period of prolific activity. An equally unmemorable stripped-down version of the album was released at the same time.

‘Old Ways’ (1985)

Young’s country album Old Ways was first proposed after 1983’s Trans, the synth-based LP he delivered to Geffen. The label balked and insisted on a rock album instead; they got the 1950s throwback Everybody’s Rockin’. Young returned to his country album in 1985, enlisting Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and fiddle and pedal steel musicians. Another unremarkable genre detour during Young’s most dour decade.

‘Everybody’s Rockin” (1983)

Young’s second Geffen LP was as baffling as the first. But where Trans moved forward, Everybody’s Rockin’ was a throwback to 1950s rockabilly, complete with a retro look (pompadour, face-dominating sideburns) and name (Neil and the Shocking Pinks). Four songs were covers; an original (“Wonderin'”) dated to 1970. It runs less than 25 minutes. Geffen soon sued Young for making deliberately uncommercial records.

‘Landing on Water’ (1986)

Three genre-specific albums left Young at odds with Geffen Records in the mid-’80s to the point where the label sued him for making records that didn’t sound like Neil Young records. Landing on Water was his return (albeit once again stitched together from years-old sessions) to fuss-free rock music. Good luck finding a memorable song, though. Even Young has referred to Landing on Water as a “piece of crap.”

‘Broken Arrow’ (1996)

After 1989’s career-reviving Freedom, Neil Young had an admirable run in the first half of the ’90s. Then Broken Arrow arrived. Shaken by the death of longtime producer David Briggs, Young and Crazy Horse falteringly recorded the LP over a month, often with no guidance or direction (the first three songs each run more than seven minutes and are little more than aimless jams). An unsteady new era was around the corner.

‘This Note’s for You’ (1988)

After a contentious five-album run with Geffen, Young returned to Reprise for his 16th LP. But he still wasn’t ready to discard the ’80s explorations that marked the decade. The flimsy This Note’s for You, co-credited to the Bluenotes (a horn-based group with other ties to Young’s past), dipped into jump blues music while adhering to a slim conceptual thread about commercialism. At least it contained a minor hit in the title track.

‘Life’ (1987)

Neil Young made five albums with Geffen in the ’80s, none of them particularly good. But at least most of them have some sort of identifiable tag: synth-pop, rockabilly, country. Life has nothing to single it out. Mostly recorded live with overdubs added later, the Crazy Horse collaboration ended Young’s controversial relationship with Geffen on a sour, but expected, note. Maybe the most easily dismissed LP in his entire catalog.

‘Trans’ (1982)

After more than two dozen years with Reprise Records, Neil Young jumped to the flourishing Geffen label for his 12th album. Nobody expected his first record under the new contract to be a futuristic new-wave LP made with synths and a vocoder altering Young’s voice – especially the label. Young has said he made Trans to communicate with his son, who had cerebral palsy. A year later Geffen filed a lawsuit.

‘American Stars ‘n Bars’ (1977)

Neil Young’s catalog is scattered with albums stitched together from various session sources. For his eighth LP, he collected nine songs recorded over a two-and-a-half-year period, starting in 1974. The results were mixed. The stripped-back country rock made with Crazy Horse on Side One has little connection to the plugged-in fury of “Like a Hurricane,” a mid-decade highlight, and the solo acoustic “Will to Love.” Aimless.

‘Neil Young’ (1968)

Young’s solo debut isn’t terrible, it’s just a letdown after the buzz he generated with Buffalo Springfield. Only a handful of songs (including “The Loner,” fleshed out onstage over the years) make an impression; the rest finds the still-growing singer-songwriter tentatively stepping away from his former band while occasionally tethered to their era-identified folk rock. Better things were to come.

SHORT TAKES — On Wednesday’s Today Show, Carson Daly revealed his first concert ever was Ziggy Marley. And as he and a friend took their seats, it seemed to Daly as if smoke rose from the stage. Daly’s friend said it was happy smoke

Leah McSweeney

I never heard of Leah McSweeney (another Bravo Housewife), but Tuesday she filed a lawsuit against Andy Cohen. More lurid details for sure. Is Andy this year’s Harvey? I’ll tell you, between Cohen, Puffy and the gals … it’s a huge, huge mess and heads will definitely roll at NBC/Comcast. Stay tuned … Yankee-Bernie Williams is at the Carlyle?

I haven’t heard his music, but this reminds me of Knick-Earl Monroe years back introducing his Pretty Pearl Records. I honestly don’t even remember the artists, but the project came and went pretty quick … Debbie Gibson on the 80’s Cruise with Wang Chung; Escape Club; English Beat; Soft Cell; Air Supply; Ray Parker; Animotion; and Tommy Tutone.
