"The Road To Qatar!" Original Cast CD Released!
I am delighted to report that the Original Cast CD of the York Theatre Company's production of "The Road To Qatar!" has officially hit the stores. The album was produced by John Yap and Jay Records and is currently available for purchase and download. I am so thrilled to have made my first album--a real milestone for a music theatre actor-- and couldn't be prouder of the entire "Qatar" family, and especially our writers David Krane and Stephen Cole, who oversaw the recording and production of their 'baby' with a meticulous and loving eye. The recording truly captures the zany spirit of the show and I think you will agree that it brings back the spirit of classic musical comedy!
I encourage you to visit Amazon. com to read the rave customer reviews for the CD, which have been amazingly gratifying to enjoy.
While the album is available for download on itunes, I recommend buying the CD, which contains Stephen Cole's wonderful liner notes, original production photos, and the libretto for the show. It is my hope that this recording will be an important step toward the continuing life of "The Road To Qatar!"
Having completed the very pleasurable run of "Victor/Victoria" at Stages St. Louis, I am back 'at liberty' in New York, making the rounds and pursuing auditions. I am delighted to announce that I will be returning to Goodspeed Musicals next month to teach the second Goodspeed Musical Theatre Audition Intensive, along with my teaching partner Molly Tynes, and special guests, choreographer Kelli Barclay, head of the University of Michigan theatre program Brent Wagner, and Goodspeed musical director Michael O'Flaherty. Last year's Intensive was enormously successful and our students have gone on to gain admission to some of the finest conservatory training programs here and abroad.
