Ashley Taylor

I Also Do This

The Duplex, NYC, May 16, 2018

Ashley Taylor

Ashley Taylor brushed off her Broadway books to show some talent that she doesn’t use for her award-winning work as an Emmy-nominated journalist. This didn’t mean stepping out of her comfort zone, though; this meant stepping very much into one she’s only temporarily left behind. Joined by old friend and Fresno pianist Terry Lewis, who made the trip out to (once again) accompany a dear friend, Taylor’s show cruised through Sondheim standards as well as a couple other Broadway songs.

And, when I say cruised, I mean cruised. She even remarked that she had her own speed as she moved through songs. While not too fast, it was noteworthy that was as precise as if she cut out her songs with an X-Acto-knife.

Taylor sounded as though she has trained and was in good vocal shape. While not a Broadway diva per se, she clearly knew what she was doing at the mic stand. She displayed a good range and had some moments that could make time stop, like her exquisite choice of “Time Stops” (Andrew Lippa from Big Fish). Beyond telling the story of life in the city and taking the chance to move here, Taylor consistently played up the people in her life as being strong supporters of her success. Two more of these, Taylor Abels Rodriguez and Sarah Waxman, joined her to sing Sondheim’s “On the Steps of the Palace” about Cinderella’s night at the ball.

Having all played the part at one point, they turned the story into a conversation.

Taylor lit up the room with her positive attitude and hit her stride especially well on the “Moments in the Woods” (Sondheim) and the closing number, “It All Fades Away” (Jason Robert Brown). As she sang “I was sliding down a mountain/I was burning in the sun,” Lewis also displayed his best form on the piano that evening.
