THE PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE (CD)
Composed by: Mike Stoller, Iris Rainer Dart, Artie Butler

THE PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE Original Cast Recording
Book and Lyrics by Iris Rainer Dart | Music by Mike Stoller and Artie Butler

Once the darling of the Yiddish Theatre in pre-war Poland, now a grandmother in New York City, Bubbie has had quite a life. But what will it all mean if she can't pass on her stories to the next generation? Though her granddaughter is enchanted by her tales, her daughter Red will do anything to keep from looking back. A fiercely funny and deeply moving new musical that spans three generations, The People in the Picture celebrates the importance of learning from our past, and the power of laughter.

The "bubbie" of the 1970s and the diva of the 1930s are played by one woman — Donna Murphy, the star of Broadway's Passion, The King and I, Wonderful Town and LoveMusik, who received a 2011 Best Actress (Musical) Tony Award nomination for her performance. Also starring are Alexander Gemignani, Christopher Innvar , Hal Robinson, Lewis J. Stadlen, Joyce Van Patten, Chip Zien, Brad Bradley, Rachel Bress, Jeremy Davis, Emilee Dupre, Maya Goldman, Louis Hobson, Shannon Lewis, Jessica Lea Patty, Andie Mechanic, Megan Reinking, Jeffrey Schecter and Paul Anthony Stewart. Produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, in association with Tracy Aron, The People In The Picture was directed by Leonard Foglia (Master Class), with musical direction by Paul Gemignani, orchestrations by Michael Starobin and musical staging by Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights). The People In The Picture has a book and lyrics by Iris Rainer Dart, the acclaimed novelist, TV writer, and playwright. Dart’s most well known book, Beaches, was turned into a hit movie starring Bette Midler. The music is by Mike Stoller and Artie Butler. Stoller, who as half of Lieber and Stoller, has written many of rock-and-roll’s most iconic songs, including “Hound Dog,” “Kansas City,” “Yakety Yak,” “Stand By Me,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Love Potion #9” and hundreds of others, including Peggy Lee’s brilliant “Is That All There Is.” The smash hit jukebox musical, Smokey Joe’s Café, was based on the Lieber and Stoller catalog. Artie Butler is an immensely talented and successful composer, arranger, and producer. His song “Here’s To Life” has become a standard, thanks to recordings by Shirley Horn and Barbra Streisand. Butler has worked with an incredible number of legendary singers, including Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Peggy Lee, Barry Manilow, Liza Minnelli, Bette Midler, Sammy Davis, Jr., Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, Natalie Cole, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as well as composing scores for film and TV.

The original cast recording of The People In The Picture is produced by Steve Epstein. The packaging includes a full color twenty-four-page booklet.
