BroadwayWorld CD Review of THE NEW PICASSO THE MUSICAL

'At the bottom line, THE NEW PICASSO is in the same vein of romantic fable that makes pieces like Moulin Rouge! so appealing to audiences. The penniless and creative everyman struggles to accept his identity and along the way finds storybook love and romance. The moving music on the albums swell with emotionality and is sung by a cast of cherished Broadway stars...The ambitious theatrical piece tells the story of a young artist whom a temptress and deceitful art dealer lure down a path of destruction; however, along the way he finds his self, true love, and redemption. Spanning two discs, the music to this fantasy piece is equal parts stirring and familiar...with his score for THE NEW PICASSO, Jonathan David Sloate doesn't disappoint...he plies the emotions of the listeners with smartly constructed chord progressions and beloved, cliche modalities to give us insight into the characters...Naturally, what really draws Broadway babies to the album is the cast he has assembled. The starry eyed hero, Jon Bernard, is expertly sung by Max von Essen. His spirited lyric baritone/tenor vocalizations charm on numbers like the hopeful "From My Mind's Eye," the undulating and angst-ridden "Lost At Sea," and the breathy ballad "All the Lonely People." Robert Cuccioli sings the villain of the show, powerful art dealer Jules de Medici, with poised power. With robust, tangible bravado it is easy to see how he entices Jon with "Art Gives You Immortality," but we see a darker and more sinister side of him when he sings with ferocious fervor on songs like "Kingmaker" and "I'll Destroy Him!." Brooke Sunny Moriber gives life to his childhood sweetheart Jennifer Robbins, singing sweetly on songs like "I Believe." With the same seductive vocal quality as Linda Eder, Ashley Amber brings the siren Alexandra Laurent to life with jazzy sensuality on numbers like "Wind Up Doll" and "Tell Me With You Heart."' -BroadwayWorld by David Clarke
