Flashback: Judd Apatow & Saycon!

Flashback: This is waaaay after the fact but I was quite excited to meet Judd Apatow when he came to see Hair. It was awesome because his movie, Funny People with Adam Sandler is one of my favorites! He was quite awesome and his daughter seemed to have loved the show too!



Hi family,

Its been a while and so much has gone on! I've been in previews for Fela!, which has taken alot of time and focus, self preservation and lots of motivation! I'm sooo excited about this new show! I've been hitting the gym, and also doing lots of interviews on my lunch breaks. I've sort of paused from Facebook and other social sites though I do use Twitter every once in a while. Thanks to all the fans who have been coming to see Fela!, especially those who miss my stint in Hair! You're really showing some love! I've attached a link to an interview from Honeymag.com Its fun please check it out! And this blog usually appears as a note on Facebook but visit Saycontalks.blogspot.com to read previous stories and please share my blog with a friend!

Dreams do come true!!!I represented the cast of Fela! during fashion week at the Manhattan Pavillion. This week was action packed with a great time of beginning rehearsals and my official modeling, cat walking, heel clicking premiere! I walked in the show presented by Elle magazine, Oral B (hence the toothbrushes in the background pics). It was curated by Caravan! I met some cool models, actresses,jewelry designers, and the Real House Wives of New Jersey! One of their children walked in the show as well. I wore a hip hugging dress by Tart. Friends Tallia Brinson, Sahr Ngaujah, and Benjamin Brown were there to support and Ben and Joshua took pics. . . Enjoy some pics from the day. .

Hello family,

Its been quite a year! I remember when I started this blog and I had performed in Central Park at the Delacort in Hair over the summer and at the same time as Fela! was off Broadway at 37 Arts. I saw the show and enjoyed my friend Sahr Ngaujah starring in this touching and jam packed musical portrayal of Fela Anikulapo Kuti's rich life! I laughed, I cried, took pics and wrote a blog about it! Now here I am proud to announce I'll be appearing in Fela too! After many auditions and a summer of double duty with Fela! rehearsals in the daytime and Hair at night. We are getting it ready for the Eugene O'neil stage. This production stars Sahr Ngaujah, Kevin Mambo, myself, Saycon, and the fabulous Lilias White. Along with a talented ensemble of dancers and Antibalas, the Afrobeat orchestra of NYC! We are directed by the incredible Bill T. Jones. I'm so excited about this time and I'm thrilled to announce on Saycontalks that Fela! is finally coming to Broadway and I'm gonna be a part of it!!!

Hope to see you there!!!

Miss. Sengbloh meets Aretha Franklin!

We've had a lot of visitors to see Hair, people have come and gone, some of them famous, some not so famous, all of them entertained but I was a bit speechless when the Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin showed up! She even invited the cast to hang with her after the show! It was cool and exciting! Well until I ate something a little too spicy and had the watery eye cough for 10 minutes. Ha ha! It was a good time!

Peace Ya'll,

Saycon meets the BlackSnob!!!

I met THE Blacksnob Miss Danielle Belton! She's an up and coming writer and very popular blogger! I found her site blacksnob. com looking for First Lady Michelle Obama's fashion pics! I've been hooked ever since. Danielle's writing is quirky and political and relates to lots of interesting topics! She blogged about an upcoming visit to New York City and I wrote to her about meeting and she wrote back. Once in New York City they met up with me and after a visit to the Hair set she decided to mention it in her blog about her trips to New York and D.C.

Look out for The Blacksnob and Miss. Belton's other work in the future, and illustrations too might I add!

Cast of Hair on Letterman

Attention people. . .here yee here yee. .. for approximately 4 minutes I danced and sang my heart out on the Late Show with David Letterman! Along with the cast of Hair we performed a combo number of "Aquarius and Let the Sun Shine In/Flesh Failures"! We rehearsed all day and hung out in the trailer and met Paul Schaffer too. It was great and my Mom and Aunty and cousins were texting me all night!

Check out the link to the Hair on Letterman youtube video below:

Saycon records the revival soundtrack of HAIR

After opening week we kept full speed ahead to record the soundtrack for the show!This Hair revival has kept me plenty busy! We did the whole thing on a Monday! It was crazy and took lots of concentration but since we sing this stuff every night we were able to make it happen!I think I was "peace signing" and cheesin' a lil' too hard in this pic!

But seeing Outcast's platinum plaque in the hallway made me feel I was most definitely in the right place!Legacy Recording Studios in New York City!


Saycon Sengbloh in Broadway's Revival of Hair Opening Night Party!

WOW! Its been quite a month! Opening night was beautiful and exciting I've included some pictures from the night! I chose a simple cream colored dress and put a few curls in my Hair and hopped on the shuttle for the after party! I'm shown with Sasha Allen and Cassie Levy who play Dionne and Sheila in the show. I also posed with one of Hair's producers Andy Sandburg. And there's a shot with cast mate Nicole Lewis.

Hey guys,

Its been a long few weeks as Hair is preparing for the Broadway! Lots of work and less sleep! The cast was invited to perform at an event last week that took place at the Gershwin theatre: My old 'Wicked' stomping grounds!It was bitter sweet but we had a great time and I spoke with Stephen Schwartz whom I hadn't seen since the Broadway Meets Country event a few years back. The cast sang "Flesh Failures/Let the Sun Shine In" It was a cool night.
