17 years ago (wow, really?), I associate produced and performed in the 1937 Marc Blitzstein rock opera, The Cradle Will Rock for The Blank Theatre Company. We also made a cast recording, which we sold in the lobby, but mainly just because we wanted to make it. It is now available for purchase on iTunes. Crazy, huh?
I play Sister Mister, spoiled brat daughter of the rich fat-cat, owner of steel mill, Mister Mister and can be heard on tracks 4, 7 and 8.
They're reviving this musical as part of The Blank's 20th anniversary season. Some of the cast featured on the recording are in this production, but some of us (ahem!) are too old and have retired from the biz. I can't wait to see it from a seat in the audience! And it feels pretty good to have been a part of something that has endured. And is now on freakin' iTunes!
