So I wanted to do a little update on the Tale experience over in the UK. It was truly amazing.
We rehearsed the "staged" version of the show or about a week. The filmed version of the show was created for Public television and will be aired as part of their pledge drive much like the Three Tenors or the Les Mis thing years ago.
So we had to re-stage the show with the television set and the new cast members. I have to take my hat off to those guys, they had a little a very short time to learn a great deal of material.
Here's a pic of the outside of the Theatre Royal Brighton where we filmed the show for DVD. A beautiful jewel box of a theatre with rich history.
And also during the rehearsal time for the staging we also began to record the CD. I would more call it the International Cast of A Tale Of Two Cities. Here's a photo of the recording studio SPHERE. I can't tell you how many superstars have graced the halls of this studio. There are Platinum records hanging all over the walls.
That's the great Mike Reed in the studio conducting.
So...the CD was recorded and will be released (from what I understand) when the DVD of the show is released in December. Great Christmas presents huh?!
