Lost West End

Stage Door Records have announced the release of Lost West End, a unique collection of recordings from lost West End musicals, due for CD release on July 24th, 2015.

Lost West End celebrates London’s forgotten musicals and brings together over 20 unique ‘lost’ West End productions on one album. The collection reflects 30 years of musicals that have come and gone from the West End, showcasing these unique theatrical works. Ranging from 1976 to 2009, all the musicals featured had relatively short London residencies and although they weren’t always met with critical praise, they nevertheless contain interesting, memorable scores and performances that deserve to be heard.

The diverse selection of shows featured range from epic through-sung adaptations of the classic novels ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘The Far Pavilions’ and ‘Tess Of The D’Urbervilles’ to musical autobiographies of iconic historical figures Leonardo Da Vinci, Toulouse Lautrec and Bernadette Soubirous.

The ‘Lost West End’ musicals included are: ‘Liza Of Lambeth’ (1976), ‘Troubadour’ (1978), ‘I’ (1983), ‘Y’ (1983), ‘Mutiny!’ (1985), ‘Bernadette – The People’s Musical’ (1990), ‘Valentine’s Day’ (1992), ‘Which Witch’ (1992), ‘Robin Prince Of Sherwood’ (1993), ‘Leonardo – A Portrait Of Love’ (1993), ‘Out Of The Blue’ (1994), ‘Prisoner Cell Block H’ (1995), ‘Maddie’ (1997), ‘Tess Of The D’Urbervilles’ (1999), ‘Lautrec’ (2000) ‘La Cava’ (2000), ‘Beautiful And Damned’ (2004), ‘The Far Pavilions’ (2005), ‘Behind The Iron Mask’ (2005), ‘Gone With The Wind’ (2008), ‘Too Close To The Sun’ (2009).
