All American Live Backers Audition
Don't miss this special offer to purchase ALL AMERICAN for Independence Day at the patriotic price of $7.04!
To quote a beloved song title from this CD, “Once Upon a Time”…. These four words instantly conjure a mythical, fabled land – usually a long time ago and far, far away. Well, once upon a time, there was a mythical, magical place – a place called Broadway; an enchanted kingdom set aglow by a million neon lights.
Once upon a time, in 1962, there was a Broadway musical called ALL AMERICAN. This CD offers a piece of Broadway history – a rare glimpse into the creation of a new musical comedy. It’s an example of a time-honored Broadway tradition that goes back, probably, to the very beginnings of musical theater. It’s a live recording of a backers audition, performed by the very men who wrote the music and lyrics, Charles Strouse and Lee Adams.
