Two cast recordings - Yank! and Fun Home - hit the stands this week and I believe I speak for everyone everywhere when I say, “thank Goddess Audra that we have these in our general existence to cherish forever and ever.”
It’s been several years since the Off-Broadway run of Yank! and thanks to a little crowd-funding (job well done, donors!), this WWII, same-sex romance saga between a journalist and a soldier finally - FINALLY - has its album. And featuring the original cast, no less - led by NRNW fave and current Mothers and Sons star, Bobby Steggert.
The turn-around time for the Fun Home cast album is, conveniently, less short (after numerous extensions, this well-received production departed the Public Theater last month). Jeanine Tesori composed the music and Lisa Kron wrote the lyrics for this adaptation inspired by Alison Bechdel’s autobiographical graphic novel of the same name, regarding a writer/illustrator inside her own head as she sorts through her personal and family history.
You can purchase these “must-haves” here and here, but in the spirit of awesome giveaways, PS Classics very generously sent me two copies of each album. So, I’m giving two lucky readers one of each! You game? If so, adhere to the following...
(1) You must be following me on Tumblr. In addition to Theatre, I love Disney, knitting and food - but I mostly just blog theatre. On those grounds alone, we should get along just peachy!
(2) Reblog this post. Each reblog counts as an additional entry (max of one per day). Likes do not count.
(3) An additional entry will be awarded if you ‘Like’ my Facebook page. Send me a Facebook or Tumblr message with your names on both platforms so I can properly accumulate them all.
You have until Thursday, February 27th, at 11:59 pm to enter. I will select 2 winners at random from the entire pool of entries and will contact them via Tumblr Ask/Submit regarding his/her mailing address. I will ship anywhere, so international participants are welcome to participate. I love internationals!
Best of luck! And remember, by supporting Off-Broadway, angels get their wings. If you’re not gonna do it for your personal enjoyment, do it for the angels!
