ABOUT THE CAST ALBUM

When I was approached by the extremely talented Beth Falcone about producing a high quality recording of the score of Wanda’s World I had absolutely no hesitation. I had been Associate Producer of Wanda’s World when it was originally produced back in 2008. We played to sell-out crowds at the 45th Street Theatre every night and, had we not had to leave for the next show coming in, who knows how long we would have run. Wanda’s World strikes a chord with everyone who sees it, no matter what the age. As we say, it’s “for the ‘tween in all of us”. The issues that the show deals with are as relevant now as they were when the show was first produced. And the score rocks! We were utterly delighted to be able to put together such an all-star cast of performers for this CD. We hope that you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it. – Terry Schnuck
