A guest post from Carson Kreitzer and Matt Gould, the writers of this year’s show Lempicka.
Before passing roles and songs along to singer/actors, we need to find the character’s true voice. Tamara de Lempicka, painter, Polish refugee, woman who will fall in love with her model, Rafaela… the first voice she sings in is always Matt’s. This is one of the first songs we wrote for the show, and the place where we truly found out who she is. Here, after they make love for the first time, Tamara observes and paints the sleeping Rafaela, wondering how, how in this world can she truly capture this. This woman.
Our task is the same, with Tamara. Here she is.
