NEW VIDEO: Susan Egan, Laura Osnes & Courtney Reed say “Keep Your Distance!”

When people ask me what a Producer does, my favorite answer is “A Producer gets people in a room.”

That’s a bit hard these days.

So when I had an idea last week, I turned to three Princesses to figure it out.

And boy oh boy did they.

I hope you’ll enjoy our effort to encourage social distancing, our version of “Go The Distance” from Hercules, aptly titled, “Keep Your Distance!”  (Originally we were going to call it “Keep your @#$%ing distance!” but these are Princesses after all).

This video features the incredible stars of The Broadway Princess Party, Susan Egan, Laura Osnes and Courtney Reed, with new lyrics by Kleban Award-winner Amanda Yesnowitz, Music Direction by Benjamin Rauhala, Orchestrations by Doug Katsaros, and a couple of surprise guests.

Enjoy it.  And then share it.  In addition to putting a smile on your face, it’s a message the world needs right now.

A big thanks to these incredibly talented and “up-for-anything” ladies, their partners, their pets, and my friends who pitched in to make this happen.  You helped give this Producer something to produce over the past week.  And feeling productive is one of the best ways I know how to get through this.

Here’s “Keep Your Distance!”
