Sondheim's MARRY ME A LITTLE Will Get Ghostlight Cast Recording, Coming This Summer

 by Sh-K-Boom Records on 4/26/2013 to News
The company of the Keen Company production of Marry Me A Little, Lauren Molina and Jason Tam, will enter the studio today, April 26th, to preserve their New Off-Broadway Cast Recording with Ghostlight Records. A summer release is planned. Joel Moss will produce the album, with Kurt Deutsch serving as Executive Producer. Musical Director is John Bell.

Marry Me A Little, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman René, directed by Keen Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein, has just been nominated for a 2013 Drama League Award for Outstanding Musical Revival (along with Annie, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Passion, Pippin, and Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella).

Weaving together several unknown Sondheim songs, Marry Me a Little tells the charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival of the modern single. Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, shared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.

David Rooney in The New York Times said of this production: "No living Broadway composer's gifts have been more celebrated than Mr. Sondheim's. But it's a testament to his skills that the discards and remnants from which this show was stitched are more beguiling than so much of what passes for contemporary musical theater."

"All praise, then, to the Keen Company, a deservedly admired off-Broadway troupe, for reviving Marry Me a Little, which hasn't been seen in New York since 1987, and showing the big boys how to do it right. Short, smart and sweet!" declared Terry Teachout in The Wall Street Journal.

This recording will be the first for "Rainbows," written for the yet unproduced Into the Woods film.

In addition, this production contains material from Sondheim's catalogue that was added to Marry Me A Little for the first time as part of this production: "Ah But Underneath" (written for the London premiere of Follies), replacing "Uptown, Downtown" and "If You Can Find Me, I'm Here" ("Evening Primrose") replacing "Pour Le Sport," as well as "Bring on the Girls" (from Follies). The score also features 'Saturday Night,' 'So Many People,' 'A Moment With You' (from Saturday Night), 'Bang!,' 'Silly People' (cut from A Little Night Music), 'Can That Boy Foxtrot!,' 'All Things Bright and Beautiful,' 'It Wasn't Meant to Happen,' 'Little White House," 'Who Could Be Blue?' (cut from Follies), 'The Girls of Summer' (from The Girls of Summer), 'Your Eyes Are Blue' (cut from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), 'Marry Me A Little,' 'Happily Ever After' (cut from Company), and 'There Won't Be Trumpets' (cut from Anyone Can Whistle).
