Feeling Kinda Naughty: The Music of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When Rachel Bloom won a Golden Globe for Best Actress for the irreverent CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend this January, it was the culmination of years of hard work and development. Since the very beginning, Rachel and her collaborators have kept music at the center of the show - and the same goes for her own comedy career, all the way back to her 2010 viral video “F**k Me, Ray Bradbury.” But how do you craft elaborate musical numbers that work as songs, as part of the narrative, and as comedy - all the while keeping in mind your budgets, you audience and the TV format? Bloom and her fellow ASCAP collaborators, Jack Dolgen (an alum of the ASCAP Lester Sill Workshop) and Adam Schlesinger (Grammy/Emmy-winning member of Fountains of Wayne and Ivy), will pull back the curtain on the music of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, in what promises to be a hilarious and perhaps slightly inappropriate panel.
