The Glorious Ones

gloriousThis CD captures the songs from the Ahrens & Flaherty piece of a couple of seasons ago.

The show, adapted from the novel by Francine Prose, tells the story of commedia dell’arte performers in an extremely touching way and Ahrens and Flaherty deliver a score that ranges from comic to bravura, and in the end is deeply touching.  Two songs are already familiar from cabaret recordings — Opposite You (on the Marin Mazzie / Jason Danieley CD) and I Was Here (on John Abernathy’s CD and in concert by Patti LuPone and Brian Stokes Mitchell).

Best of all, the songbook is already published.
