A CHORUS LINE STEPS OUT ON CD AND ARIELLE
DOMBASLE CROSSES THE POND
A CHORUS LINE
the Tony Award-winning 1970s musical has a 2006 new-cast recording featuring the under-appreciated Charlotte D'Amboise as Cassie. With vocal arrangements by Don Pippin, this is a
brilliant CD which conveys all of the angst and energy that lyricist Edward Kleban and composer Marvin Hamlisch intended when they broke the Broadway mold by devising a musical around the aspirations of a group of dancers auditioning - not for a starring role but merely a spot in the chorus.
A must have CD for any Broadway collector. Ironically, the original cast recording shot
back up on the Billboard charts when this revival hit The Great White Way. Just because you
own the original doesn't mean that this CD should be left on store racks to collect dust.
The new Broadway cast recording is the most complete recording ever of the record-breaking
musical, mixed and mastered to create the most expansive and lifelike audio A Chorus
Line experience. Running over an hour long, the 2006 Broadway cast recording contains
the full lyrics, along with more dialogue and orchestral music then previous recordings,
and restores the musical numbers to the order in which they are performed in the Broadway
production to give the listener a sense of their context in the show. The famed montage
sequence is also described as the most complete version ever recorded.
The 2006 recording also contains more complete versions of Hope I Get It, The Music and
The Mirror and One.
Produced by Grammy award winning producer David Caddick, A Chorus Line was recorded
Monday, August 14, 2006 at the state-of-the-art Skywalker Sound Studio in Marin, CA, with
A Chorus Line composer Marvin Hamlisch, director Bob Avian, choreographer Baayork Lee,
orchestrator Jonathan Tunick and producer John Breglio in attendance for the one day
A Chorus Line is playing at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, officially opening on Thursday,
October 5, 2006.

Cortez (Diana), Charlotte D'Amboise (Cassie), Mara Davi (Maggie), Jessica Lee Goldyn (Val),
Deidre Goodwin (Sheila), Tyler Hanes (Larry), James T. Lane (Richie), Paul McGill (Mark),
Heather Parcells (Judy), Michael Paternostro (Greg), Alisan Porter (Bebe), Jeffrey Schecter
(Mike), Yuka Takara (Connie), Jason Tam (Paul), Chryssie Whitehead (Kristine) and Tony
Yazbeck (Al) in a cast of 29 that includes Michelle Aravena, David Baum, Mike Cannon, E.
Clayton Cornelious, Joey Dudding, Lyndy Franklin, Nadine Isenegger, Pamela Jordan, Lorin
Latarro, and Grant Turner.

The 2006 Broadway cast recording of the Pulitzer Prize-and Tony Award-winning musical
A Chorus Line was released Tuesday, October 10, 2006 by Masterworks Broadway.
C'EST SI BON by
Arielle Dombasle who was actually born in Norwich, Connecticut. The blonde beauty was raised in Mexico by her grandparents after her mother died, where her grandfather served as the French Ambassador. She eventually went to live in France with her grandmother and embarked on a singing career and acting and in film.
Her breakthrough film role in France was Eric Rogmer's Pauline at the Beach and Alain Robbe-Grillet's The Blue Villa.
In addition to performing, she directed and wrote the script for two films and is married to the respected French philosopher, best selling author and timber-fortune heir, Bernard-Henri Levy.
Now comes the American release of the CD Arielle Dombasle C'est si bon, to be released Tuesday, October 17 by Sony BMG France.
The effort in intended to invoke the glamour, romance and sophistication of a bygone era with new renditions of timeless songs made famous by Dean Martin, Marlene Dietrich, Doris Day and Marilyn Monroe - yes, Marilyn Monroe. No, it's not a rendition of Happy Birthday, but rather This Is a Fine Romance.
The CD is remarkably good. One can visualize a nightclub with the well dressed sipping
champagne or a gently stirred martini listening to these gently stirred arrangements. The musicians are excellent, although learning who they are takes some effort. The accompanying booklet misses the mark. Created in pale pink with alternating lines written in black and white When the words are in black, they can be read. However, in most cases, every other line is in white making it almost impossible to discern information such as instruments, or composers.
Fortunately, the listening part isn't a 50-50 guess. Dombasle can sing. Her register is high
and the selections tend to span the same emotion. Because she has deliberately picked
selections strongly associated with other singers, she begs for comparison. Dombasle doesn't
have Marlene Dietrich's throaty alto in Boys in the Backroom. Nor does she possess
Maurice Chevalier's emotional wisdom in her delivery of C'est Magnifique. She is
vocally at her best with the upbeat such as Tico Tico, South American Way. and Relax-Ay-Voo. Her emotional register is most evident in Moi, je M'ennule.
Offering a variety of tempos, this is an excellent CD for a dance party. By itself it's a
happy listen - crisp, clear, well balanced, excellent arrangements and musicians.
The full orchestra is none other than the Budapest Symphony Orchestra conducted by Bela Drahos. Musicians and backing vocalists include; Alfio Origlio, Dominique Cravic, Mathias Allamane, Laurent Robin, Julio Cezar Goncalves, Marcela Coloma, Francisco Gonzalez, Marc Di Domenico, Bruno Brochet, Didier Queron, Olivier Laudrin, Jean-Luc Pagni, Jean-Marc Welch, Julien Silvand, Vincent Payen, Fay Lovsky, Joseph Racaille, Pierre Sangra, Didier Haver, Dominique Verhnes, Guy Bodet, Serge Luc.
CD mixed by Jacques Ehrhart assisted by Didier Pouydesseau.
SPREADING THE WORD
TALKING MARKET STREET IF MARKET STREET COULD TALK
Photo from the San Francisco Art Commission.
Two outdoor screenings of projected photographs and interviews taken by foster youth will
be presented on San Francisco's main thoroughfare October 20 & 27.
“This project is a photographic forum for creative people who often go unheard,” said
Tom Ferentz, Director of the Sixth Street Photography Workshop. “It is an
artistic document of the diverse life moving up and down San Francisco's main
The public screenings are the culmination of a collaborative project between
adults from the Sixth Street Photography Workshop (SSPW) and youth from
Fostering Art, a program of A Home Within. Staff from the Sixth Street Photography
Workshop trained participating youth in basic portrait photography and interviewing
skills. Then, both SSPW staff and Fostering Art youth worked together to create a series of
photographs of and recorded interviews with pedestrians at six locations on Market Street. A selection of these materials, edited by youth as well as adult staff, will be
presented at these free, public screenings.
The Sixth Street Photography Workshop shares the art and skills of photography with very low income and homeless adults in San Francisco. Fostering Art, a program of A Home Within, teaches photography skills to 50 foster youth annually. A Home Within is a national nonprofit social service agency that provides a range of program to youth in foster care.
“Talking Market Street brings the fresh perspective of San Francisco youth to the well-trodden pedestrian pathway at the center of the downtown business district,” says Judy Moran, Public Art Program Manager for the San Francisco Arts Commission.
Talking Market Street: If Market Street Could Talk is funded by the San Francisco Arts
Commission’s Art on Market Street Program. The Art on Market Street
Program brings contemporary art by Bay Area artists to San Francisco’s main thoroughfare.
San Francisco’s Public Art Program, one of the first in the country, was established by
City ordinance in 1969.
PRINCE ANDREW UNVEILS BRONZE STATUE OF BAMSE THE WWII LEGENDARY
on Tuesday, October 17 in Montrose, Scotland.
The statue was created by renowned Scottish Sculptor Allan Beatie Herriot, and cast at the
Powderhall Foundry at Leith. It will be draped in the Saltire and Norwegian flags.
Prince Andrew will be welcomed to the historic waterfront of Montrose by hundreds of local
school children, including Scotland’s youngest pipe band (Lathallan School). Also present
will be representatives of the Royal Norwegian and British navies, dignitaries, war veterans,
many visitors from Norway, other supporters and Brit the St Bernard dog. Among the Norwegian
visitors will be Vigdis Hafto, daughter of Bamse’s owner, Dr. Willie Nilsen, whose father’s
life was saved by the dog, and Reidar Pedersen, a veteran who witnessed a life saving. A
special message from King Harald V of Norway will be delivered by Mr. Bjorn Eilertsen, Royal
Norwegian Consul in Edinburgh.
Project Chairman Dr Andrew Orr said “We are delighted that His Royal Highness has come
to the Royal Burgh of Montrose to unveil this stunning new sculpture. This memorial will
ensure that the legend of Bamse lives on and will cement the special relationship between
Scotland and Norway”
Project Director Henny King said “I am amazed at Bamse’s international pulling power."
The legendary Norwegian St Bernard Dog Bamse (pronounced Bum-sa) came to Scotland
in 1940 with his owner Capt Erling Hafto, as a crew member of the Norwegian minesweeper
Thorodd, stationed at Montrose and Dundee. Fearless in action he became essential to
the ship’s morale, graduating from ship’s mascot to Norwegian Navy Mascot to
Mascot of all the Free Norwegian Forces, widely known to all Allied Forces.
( See Broadway To Vegas column of January 22,
During his long service he looked after the ship’s crew, guiding drunken souls back on board, breaking up fights, helping with sentry duty and saving at least two lives. An extraordinarily intelligent and resourceful dog, he was adored by the sailors and by the children of the ports he visited. He died on July 22, 1944 and was buried at Montrose, with a funeral attended by the crews of six ships and hundreds of schoolchildren. Bamse has never been forgotten, his grave lovingly tended by the people of Montrose ever since. The Royal Norwegian Navy has sent a ship to Montrose every ten years to honor his memory.
In July 2006 the PDSA awarded him posthumously their Gold Medal for Gallantry and Devotion to Duty - the animal equivalent of the George Cross,
PRINCESS GRACE FOUNDATION-USA ANNOUNCES
that this year, in addition to the traditional grants, the Foundation will award an additional
General Operating Support grant to companies hosting a 2006 Princess Grace Awards winner.
“These grants are a new component to the 2006 Princess Grace Awards package," says Executive
Director Toby E. Boshak. "Companies working with a 2006 Awards winner will be able to use
these grants to help support general operating expenses for the institution."
With the general downturn in funding for the arts, non-profit theater and dance companies
are very grateful for this support.
David Herskovits, Artistic Director of Target Margin Theater explains, “The Princess Grace
Foundation is giving Target Margin Theater support at a crucial time. As our company grows,
we are straining to meet new institutional demands, and we need to be developing our most
essential asset: people. Talented young artists like Alice Reagan are not only what will keep
TMT thriving; the future of the American theater and its place in our culture will spring
only from them.”
William Darger, Williamstown Theater General Manager, adds, “We at the Williamstown Theatre
Festival are delighted that Suzanne Agins has been honored by the Princess Grace Awards
for her work. An unexpected, and gratifying part of this recognition of Suzanne’s work
is that the Princess Grace Foundation-USA also generously awarded the Festival a grant
which will support the many facets of our work, including presenting classic and new
work and training the next generation of theatre artists. We are grateful for this
Karole Armitage, Artistic Director of Armitage Gone! Dance agrees with her theater colleagues, "As a nonprofit dance company entering its second season, Armitage Gone! Dance is grateful to the Princess Grace Foundation–USA for not only supporting our talented Company member Leonides D. Arpon with a Princess Grace Dance Fellowship but for also providing a grant to our organization. Receiving these funds at such a critical time in our development will enable us to build the necessary infrastructure for a bright future and to present a week-long season at the Joyce Theater in February 2007."
The Board of Trustees of the Princess Grace Foundation-USA and its Chairman, Hon.
John F. Lehman, will bestow the awards at a black-tie gala on November 2, 2006 at
Ciprianni 42nd Street. CNN’s Larry King will serve as Master of Ceremonies once
again and H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Foundation's Vice Chairman, together
with other notables from the artistic world will preside over the Awards Gala.
