Life Begins at 8:40

Life Begins at 8:40

PS Classics has reconstructed the score for Life Begins at 8:40, a 30’s-era musical revue.  The score has music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by both Yip Harburg and Ira Gershwin.

The CD is a treasure trove of material for the cabaret singer and of stellar performances by luminaries such as Kate Baldwin, Rebecca Luker and Montego Glover.  Particular favorites, so far, include You’re a Builder Upper and Fun to Be Fooled.  Brad Oscar and Faith Prince score in a number of comic pieces, particularly the sketch C’est La Vie which reminds us that menage a trois is also French.
