Once upon a time I used to be a pop culture princess. I could answer any question about TV, movies, musicals, most music genres…you get the idea. These days, not so much which is very much evidenced by the fact that I didn’t know who Ben Platt was.
I watched the first episode of The Politician the other night and was blown away by his singing of the Joni Mitchell song “River.” You hear actors sing all the time but this one–wow! And then I find out he’s a singer. Ha. Joke on me.
If you haven’t heard him sing this song before, you’re in for a treat.
