One Night With Fanny Brice — Original Cast CD

Posted on Nov 11, 2014 in Audio/Visual

by Chip Deffaa Fanny Brice worked her way up from singing on street corners for pennies as a kid, to burlesque, to Broadway… to becoming America’s highest-paid singing comedienne. She fell for a dashing confidence man, Nicky Arnstein–and when she introduced her immortal “My Man,” the whole country knew she was singing about him. The show was originally produced Off-Broadway in New York at St. Luke’s Theater; it has subsequently been revived twice in New York by The 13th Street Repertory Company. It has been equally well-received in productions at the American Century Theater, Arlington, Virginia; the Rosen Theater, Wayne, New Jersey; and at the Phoenix Stage, Naugatuck, Connecticut. It will be produced next at the Open-Eye Theater, Margaretville, New York. Everyone loves a good rags-to-riches story. PURCHASE OPTIONS: You can purchase this CD directly from us for $13.99...

First Freedom — Original Concept CD

Posted on Nov 11, 2014 in Audio/Visual

Book & Lyrics by Rob. Lauer Music by Sam Cardon & Rick Rea “First Freedom” is set in Virginia, during the period of the American Revolution, and presents the little known but fascinating story of the passionate battle that our Founding Fathers fought among themselves in order to establish religious freedom as a right for all Americans. Through drama, comedy and an incredible score by Emmy-Award winning composer Sam Cardon, and Rick Rea, this ground breaking musical brings to vibrant life great historical figures such as James Madison, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson and George Mason—and it confronts head-on the constant struggle of individuals trying to live peacefully together as equals despite profound, deeply held religious and philosophic differences. The era of “First Freedom” is in many ways a time very similar to our own. The country was engaged in...

The Seven Little Foys — Original Cast CD

Posted on Mar 27, 2014 in Audio/Visual

by Chip Deffaa Featuring the 2012 New York Fringe Festival Cast! The story of “THE SEVEN LITTLE FOYS” inspired a classic film musical (starring Bob Hope and James Cagney), and then later also a TV special (starring Eddie Foy Jr. and the Osmonds).  Now ASCAP award-winner Chip Deffaa has adapted this heart-warming saga for the stage, portraying a master entertainer, struggling to keep his family together after the death of his wife. Eddie Foy was a beloved song-and-dance comedian, and he was also a bit of a rogue. For the most part, he left the responsibilities of parenting to his wife. But when his wife died, he took their seven high-spirited children on the road with him. They created a family act–“Eddie Foy and the Seven Little Foys”–that became the top family act of the era, an American institution....

A Southern Christmas Carol Original Cast CD

Posted on Feb 8, 2014 in Audio/Visual

Book, Music and Lyrics by Rob. Lauer Musical Arrangements by Jeff Joyner “Think Charles Dickens meets Horton Foote.” When “A Southern Christmas Carol” premiered in 2003, critics called it “good fun…a hoot that warms the heart”… “Lovely, there’s no other single word to describe it…Charles Dickens himself couldn’t have written a better account of the spirit of Christmas. At least not Christmas in 1933 Depression-ridden Southwest Georgia.” In “A Southern Christmas Carol,” award-winning playwright Rob. Lauer moves the classic tale of Scrooge  from  1840’s London to Depression-era rural Georgia during the height of Jim Crow laws. “Though most of the world knows how Dickens’ story ends, Lauer did such an excellent job of tailoring the original story to fit the South that one is eager to see how this story will end,” The Albany Herald enthused; “Meant to explore...
