Randy Newman, Performing in Santa Barbara, and Rituals

Randy Newman songs can tend toward the sardonic, but then there’s his music for animated movies, which can play your heartstrings like a violin. Newman brought his signature sound to the movie Cars 3 — we talk to him about it on Arts Alive. Plus, the Ensemble Theatre Company of Santa Barbara’s first professional summer training program for teens wants to teach aspiring actors as much about preparing as performing. Hear all about that, plus musicians’ pre-show rituals and more on the Arts Alive podcast.
