Q:Do you have more videos from the night of the last cocktober video that you posted?
Thanks for the (not-unexpected) question.
Unfortunately, no other videos from that show are available to be posted.
By now you’ve seen and heard several variations of this story across the social media sphere, but you haven’t seen this one!
The sister video to the "Welcome to My Apartment" we posted yesterday: Julia Murney discussing how that song came to be and revisiting her most (im)famous voice over.
"Welcome to the month of….."
It’s October 1st on the East coast, which means the time has come to post this particular video.
The first video of this most seminal Julia Murney anecdote. (From Don’t Quit Your Night Job in June, 2008!)
I don’t think we have to tell you, but just in case — this contains adult language and content.
We know what tomorrow is. We know that you know what tomorrow is. Let’s kick off the “celebration” right now.
Above is a never-before-released performance of Julia Murney singing Jeff Blumenkrantz’s “Welcome to My Apartment.” This song is a humorous tribute to one of Julia’s most memorable voiceover jobs. (We’ll be posting a couple of videos of that story tomorrow.)
And just in case you don’t know, or if you’ve somehow forgotten, this song is definitely NSFW or sensitive ears.
Supplementing Stage Work With Star Wars: Why Broadway's Brightest Stars Are Taking Odd Jobs - Trends - Sep 16, 2014
Stephen Trask, Julia Murney, and Euan Morton talk about the surprising second careers they love.
As you might have heard, earlier this month, Julia and Katie Rose Clarke joined Steven Reineke and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra for a Wicked Divas show in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This set contains photos from the ladies’ social media accounts and The Star Online (click the link for their glowing review of the show and Julia in particular.)
In my last post, I argued that solo albums have value in contemporary musical theatre. But what value do they bring specifically? I’m glad you asked! To answer that question, it’s important to understand how a solo album goes from but a twinkling in an actor’s eye to a professional studio recording. So pull out your textbooks and turn to chapter six; it’s time to talk about the solo album birds and the bees. […]
Really nice appreciation of solo albums from NewMusicalTheatre.com with special appreciation for “I’m Not Waiting”
The second clip we have from La Vida Inesperada is a bit longer than the first, and offers a deeper glimpse into the film as a whole. One difference, though, is that a good portion of it is in Spanish. (If one of you fine followers might be able to offer some translation, we’d greatly appreciate it.)
You may recall we posted a promo clip earlier this year that featured a bit of this scene. We were very happy to see that Julia was not dubbed in the final film as she was in the promo.
As with the last clip, we hope you enjoy!

The Ensemblist #31: Ensemble Musicals
(Tumblr audio being wonky? Click one of the other links below to check out the episode:)
On this latest episode of The Ensemblist, Nikka and Mo interview three Broadway stars who have shined in ensemble musicals. As veterans of various types of Broadway shows, Telly Leung, Dana Moore, and Julia Murney explain how ensemble shows are unique experiences that require trust and flexibility throughout the entire journey.
As opposed to traditional book musicals with lead characters, supporting players, features, and ensemblists, ensemble shows tell their story differently- every member of the cast takes the spotlight at some point during the show. These three guests all have experience with this alternative way of storytelling through song- and their stories about what it takes to work as a group shine a whole new light on what it’s like to truly work together.
The Ensemblist is a really fascinating podcast. Y’all should totally check out the rest of their episodes after enjoying this latest one.
