Marry Me A Little Cast Album “Stirring and Beautiful”
The new Off-Broadway Revival Cast Album of Marry Me A Little has dropped! Featuring Lauren Molina as Her (and on cello) and Jason Tam as Him, John Bell on piano, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman René, directed by Keen Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein, and produced by Ghostlight Records. Weaving together several unknown Sondheim songs, Marry Me a Little tells the charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival of the modern single. Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, shared fantasies, never knowing that they’re just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.
“Lauren Molina’s lush soprano voice sings the score with affecting expressive depth and lyrical clarity. She handles toe-tapping numbers like “Can That Boy Foxtrot!” with endearing charismatic zeal. Furthermore, her sultry rendition of “The Girls of Summer” is a true highlight of the album. With a gorgeous sense of despair and longing on “Rainbows,” she delivers each word to the heart of listeners as if they were handwritten love notes. Across the album, Lauren Molina’s performances are emotionally assertive and nicely beguiling.” -Broadway World
Accolades For Rocky Horror
“Director Hunter Foster has given the show a subtle updating, with references to more recent horror flicks, including Leatherface from “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” Chucky from “Child’s Play” and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from “Ghostbusters.” He also gives us a Frank who is more androgynous than usually seen – think a smart-aleck “Ziggy Stardust;” a Brad who is more nerd and possibly a closeted gay than simply uptight and clueless, and a Janet who is more sexually frustrated than innocent ingénue.
Broadway’s Lauren Molina runs with the role of Janet and makes her almost poignant, not to mention she has amazing pipes on songs like “Over At the Frankenstein Place” and “Touch-a, Touch Me.”
