Stage Door present the second volume in their 'Lost Broadway' album series; 'Lost Broadway 1956-57' features 56 tracks including over 25 recordings that appear on CD for the very first time. The album includes a complete disc of Original Broadway Cast Recordings and a companion disc of 'Covers and Rarities', showcasing pop covers and other rare recordings from the Broadway musicals of 1956 and 1957.

Included on 'Lost Broadway 1956-57' are the musicals 'Shangri-La', 'Copper and Brass', 'Shinbone Alley' and 'Rumple', shows that weren't afforded a Broadway Cast Album due to their limited runs. Other featured musicals include 'Happy Hunting', 'Mr. Wonderful', 'New Faces Of 1956', 'Candide', 'Jamaica', 'New Girl In Town' and the play with music 'Time Remembered'. The selections featured include a broad range of musical styles and genres from prolific musical theatre writers including Leonard Bernstein, Jerry Bock, Harold Arlen, Bob Merrill and Vernon Duke.

The album boasts a host of star performers including Ethel Merman, Sammy Davis, Jr., Chita Rivera, Maggie Smith, Eartha Kitt, Lena Horne, Gwen Verdon, Maurice Chevalier, Buddy Grecco, Margaret Whiting, Tony Martin, Eddie Fisher and more.

Although the shows didn't last, their music lives on and this collection affirms that the 'lost' Broadway musicals featured are well worth rediscovering.
