A few photos have been added to HPN's Gallery pages this week.

We're always looking for more content for the site. So this seems like a good time to put out the call again.

So, if you have anything, please let us know!

You can e-mail me anytime at

Quick CD update

As of today, a release date for Hugh's CD hasn't been set yet.

However, when it is released it will be available through iTunes. I know some people were asking about that.

When more details are available, they'll be posted!

Recording news

No, this is not an update on Hugh's solo CD...yet.

Before leaving for Europe to tour with Barbra Streisand, Hugh was in the studio with Kristin Chenoweth to record a new version of "Tonight" for a new West Side Story album.

The album, A Place For Us - A Tribute To 50 Years of West Side Story, is now available for pre-order and is set for release in early September.

Hugh and Kristin are in good company as the album features tracks by such music icons as Julie Andrews, Neil Diamond, Andre Previn, and Barbra Streisand.

Also, Simply Barbra Duets, an album by Streisand tribute artist Steven Brinberg was released earlier this year. For a preview of Hugh's smooth, sultry duet with "Simply Barbra," please check out Hugh's official MySpace page.

If you couldn't make it to Europe to hear Hugh with the real Babs, this isn't a bad substitute.

Now, here's hoping it won't be too long before I have something to blog about Hugh's own album.


Post-tour update

The European concert tour with Barbra Streisand ended with a final performance in London on July 25.

The HPN page for the tour has been updated with on-stage photos shared by fans and wonderful candids of Hugh and Barbra's "Broadway boys" out and about in Europe.

Click here for all the tour-related photos and links.

Also, some video footage from various tour stops has been shared by Barbra's fans and is available at the HPN message board. Thanks to everyone who provided the videos and to my co-admin, Bonnie, for organizing and posting them.

I've received a lot of inquiries about Hugh's plans now that the tour has ended. As soon as Hugh or his agents let me know what his next project(s) will be, that news will be posted immediately. I'm hoping to hear an update on his solo album and will pass that along as well.

Stay tuned...
