The last time “06880” caught up with Mia Gentile, the former Staples Players and “Kinky Boots” Broadway star had just released a stunning, Black Lives Matter-inspired version of “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?”
She and collaborator musician/video producer Roger Klug called themselves MISSYFIT.
“06880” loves Mia. Previous stories covered the 2007 Staples/2011 Cincinnati Conservatory of Music grad’s clever, multi-genre interpretations of the Stanley Steemer jingle, and her many stage roles back in the days when live theater was a thing.
Which brings us to her latest project.
Once again, Mia and Roger have worked together — though hundreds of miles apart — on a new take of an old classic.
Or in this case, 2 classics.
“It was cathartic for us to ring out 2020 with some punk rock angst,” she says.
They mashed up the Ramones’ “Glad to See You Go” and “I Wanna Be Sedated.” The latter song is particularly apt — you know, “20, 20, 20, 4 hours to go…”
It’s a quick leap to 2020 — the year we can’t wait to bid adieu.
So, with just about 9 hours to go … take it away, Mia and Roger!
