Description

Stage Door debuts the 'Two Cities' Original London Cast album on CD, coupled with the previously unreleased original studio demos of the score featuring several songs that would be later cut from the production. Charles Dickens' classic novel 'A Tale Of Two Cities' was developed as a musical in the mid sixties by theatre producer Jerry Wayne who commissioned his son Jeff to compose the score for the project. With a book by Constance Cox, music by Jeff Wayne and lyrics by Jerry Wayne; 'Two Cities' opened at London's Palace Theatre on February 27th 1969. The musical starred Edward Woodward (as Sydney Carton), Kevin Colson (as Charles Darnay), Elizabeth Power (as Lucie), Leone Greene (as Monsieur Defarge), Nicolette Roeg (as Madame Defarge). +Although reviews were mixed, 'Two Cities' earned a nomination for 'Best Musical' at the 1969 Variety Club and Evening Standard Theatre Awards and the show's star Edward Woodward won the 1969 Variety Club and Evening Standard Award for 'Best Male Performance in a Musical'.
