Queen of the Mist

Original Cast Recording

Only the brilliant and eclectic Michael John LaChiusa could compose a musical about Anna Edson Taylor, the first person to survive going over Niagara Falls in a barrel (in 1901 at the age of 63!). Boasting a superb cast led by the galvanizing performances of Mary Testa as Taylor and Andrew Samonsky as her unscrupulous promoter, LaChiusa’s score is as tuneful as it is terrific.

Janene Lovullo

This Moment

Former Broadway baby Janene Lovullo is a singer you should know, and her new, self-produced debut CD makes an auspicious calling card. Prophetically titled This Moment, Lovullo’s gorgeous soprano comes across as capable of singing almost any genre with power and beauty. With musical direction by the talented Christopher Marlowe, Lovullo covers everything from Sondheim to Bucchino to Menotti with exquisite style. (JaneneLovullo.com)

Sweet Little Devil

World Premiere Recording

PS Classics has done it again with their fabulous world premiere recording of George Gershwin and B.G. DeSylva’s 1924 confection, Sweet Little Devil. A breezy romp of a plot makes a perfect excuse for delightful tunes by Gershwin (from his earliest intact score), snappy lyrics by DeSylva and sensational singing by Sara Jean Ford, Rebecca Luker, Sally Wilfert, Philip Chaffin, Danny Burstein and Jason Graae.
