Broadway Bullet Interview: NYMF Broadway Idol - Jaclyn Huberman
BroadwayBullet: Alright. Way back in October 2006, we announced Jaclyn Huberman the New York City Music Festival's Broadway Idol. And as promised we have her sing in the studio, do a little interview, to promote her concert at Ars Nova. How are you doing?
Jaclyn Huberman: I'm great how are you?
BB: Good. I understand, before we talk about your concert, that just last night you sang at the Where's Darfur benefit.
JH: I did. It was so cool. We were at The Knitting Factory. And there were, I don't know how many people in the cast. Maybe 30 people. And this rocking band. And we had this crazy silent auction. I think we ended up raising 8 thousand dollars for Darfur, which is really fantastic. And it was an amazing experience. The only bad part was The Knitting Factory's air conditioner died. And it was, as you may recall, the first warm day of the year so we were all just disgusting. We were sweating all over each other. We just kept saying, "It's for Darfur"
BB: It must've felt like you were in Darfur.
JB: I know. We were rocking out, singing our butts off, so forgive me if I sound a bit sleepy. We were out till 3am. It was awesome.
BB: So now they finally got your concert organized at Ars Nova. So what's going on? What are you going to be performing here?
JH: Actually we're doing a lot of different things, crossing some genres. Doing mostly Musical Theatre stuff but from many different era's. So we're doing a lot of 50's stuff and contemporary stuff and we have some special guests. I don't want to give away the set list but it's going to be great.
BB: Before we talk a little bit more here, you're going to perform a song in the studio for us. Who's your accompanist?
JH: My accompanist is the incredibly talented Andy Boroson. We went to college together and he's fantastic. And we're going to be performing "I Can Do Better Than That" From the Last 5 Years by Jason Robert Brown.
