I spoke to singer, songwriter and all-around nice guy, Harrison Craig, for the tiniest of minutes, on the red carpet at the Singin’ in the Rain opening night last Saturday.
Harrison, you’re no stranger to singing and dancing in the rain yourself, is it as joyous and momentous as the song, musical and movie makes it out to be?
It is! It’s very much fun when you get on a role, and get to dance and perform – and perform doing what you love. I guess, with this particular show, it’s such a great movie, and now a great musical, and it’s got very talented people in it. It’s gonna be great, so I’m looking forward to it very much!
Singin’ in the Rain is a musical about love, and expressing love through song. Do you think serenading someone is one of the most romantic gestures?
(laughs) I’ve never been serenaded so I wouldn’t know, but it is definitely fun to serenade some people … if they’re wanting to be serenaded. (laughs)
What is a good song to serenade someone with?
Maybe something like My Cherie Amour or The Look of Love or something really nice, like a beautiful standard. (laughs)
Thank you Harrison for the chat, PR for inviting me on the red carpet and tickets, and all my friends at Joy94.9 for the after party drinks. Write up very very soon!
