Stage Door are pleased to present the second volume in our 'Lost Broadway' album series; 'Lost Broadway 1956-57'; celebrating the forgotten and obscure Broadway musicals of 1956 and 1957.

Presented as a Deluxe 2CD Set, 'Lost Broadway 1956-57' features over 55 tracks including over 25 tracks appearing on CD for the first time. The album includes a complete disc of Original Broadway Cast Recordings and a companion disc of 'Covers And Rarities', showcasing pop covers and other rare recordings from the Broadway musicals of 1956 and 1957. (including the musicals 'Shangri-La', 'Copper And Brass', 'Shinbone Alley' and 'Rumple', shows that weren't afforded a Broadway Cast Album due to their limited runs). The selections featured on 'Lost Broadway 1956-57' include a broad range of musical styles and genres from prolific musical theatre writers including Leonard Bernstein, Jerry Bock, Harold Arlen, Bob Merrill and Vernon Duke. 

The 'Lost Broadway 1956-57' featured musicals are 'Happy Hunting', 'Mr. Wonderful', 'Shangri-La', 'New Faces Of 1956', 'Candide', 'Shinbone Alley', 'Copper And Brass', 'Rumple', 'Simply Heavenly', 'Jamaica', 'New Girl In Town and the play with music 'Time Remembered'. The album boasts a host of star performers including Ethel Merman, Sammy Davis, Jr., Chita Rivera, Barbara Cook, Maggie Smith, Eartha Kitt, Lena Horne, Gwen Verdon, Maurice Chevalier, Buddy Greco, Margaret Whiting, Tony Martin, Eddie Fisher and more.

Although the shows didn't last, their music lives on and this collection affirms that the 'lost' Broadway musicals featured are well worth rediscovering.
