The Story of My Life [Original Broadway Cast] by Various Artists on CD
Tony nominee Malcolm Gets (Amour, A New Brain, TV's Caroline in the City) and Will Chase (High Fidelity, Rent, Aida) star in this new musical that follows the contours of a lifelong friendship between two men, Alvin and Thomas, whose childhood bond threads throughout their adult years. THE STORY OF MY LIFE is a Broadway rarity: an intimate musical that candidly explores the simplicity of human need and the complexity of emotions under which it lies buried. Composer-lyricist Neil Bartram and librettist Brian Hill have created an authentic and affecting work, told through a series of songs - in turn playful, touching and dramatic, and expertly orchestrated by Jonathan Tunick. One New York critic predicted, 'When the original cast recording comes out, see if you don't find yourself moved to Google the name of some long-lost friend with whom you simply lost touch.' The Story Of My Life inspires us to reconnect with those who were part of the earliest chapters of our own life stories.
