That's a once-in-a-lifetime lineup. Now here's hoping they live up to their billing and provide more than obscure theatre trivia (Breakfast at Tiffany's, the musical, anyone?) decades hence.

It's so weird that you said that, because I actually have the cast album of "Breakfast at Tiffany's, the musical"! :-) (I just bought it because I like the performers, though!)

Well, to my knowledge the only cast recording issued on CD for that show was a 1995 studio cast w/ John Schneider, Faith Prince, et al. (http://www.castalbumdb.com/rec.cfm?RNumber=3395). But the show had a legendarily brief (a literal handful of preview performances) run on Broadway in the mid-60s: http://www.ibdb.com/production.php?id=12867. Somehow, Richard Chamberlain, Mary Tyler Moore, Larry Kert, and a book by Edward Albee couldn't even get the show to opening night!

What made me enjoy A CHRISTMAS CAROL was the fact that, despite having been filmed literally hundreds of times, the story still managed to suck me in.
