'Bullets Over Broadway': Zach Braff hits the recording studio

Posted on

Bullets Over Broadway
Paul Kolnik

Who’s sitting on top of the world? Zach Braff, who’s loving life while making his Broadway debut in the quick-tapping musical comedy Bullets Over Broadway.

Braff stars in the adaptation of the 1994 Woody Allen film as David Shayne, a playwright whose first big Broadway endeavor is underscored by gangsters, divas, talentless chorus girls, and a rising number of dead bodies. The score is based entirely on period standards from the early 20th century.

The cast of Bullets (which includes Tony nominee Nick Cordero, Betsy Wolfe, Marin Mazzie, and Masters of Sex’s Helene Yorke) hit the recording studio on April 14 at Manhattan’s MSR Studios to lay down the new album, available on June 10 from Masterworks Broadway.

Below, check out EW’s exclusive look behind the scenes at the recording session and find out from Braff himself why he’s rolling along, just rolling along.
