It was a fun-filled reunion of cast, production team, and audience for the Persuasion: A New Musical Original Cast Recording Release Party on December 4, 2017. Mistress of Ceremonies was Kate Jaeger (Mary Musgrove, Second Gossip) and she welcomed remarks from Taproot's Artistic Director Scott Nolte and the writers of the musical adaptation of Jane Austen's Persuasion, Chris Jeffries (music and lyrics) and Harold Taw (book). Best of all was the live performance by the cast members and musicians of four songs: "Only Anne," "Nut Song," "Pump Room," and "That's Home." "That's Home" is featured by Jack Straw Cultural Center in its December 7, 2017 "Artist of the Week" podcast.
Thank you to co-presenters of the event Taproot Theatre Company and Jack Straw Cultural Center, as well as to everyone who came out to celebrate and buy CDs! Remember, the Original Cast Recording is available to download/stream on iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, and everywhere you listen to music. Physical CDs are available at The Stage Door Cafe at Taproot Theatre Company, C & P Coffee Co., Easy Street Records, online at CD Baby, and through your local record store.
