World Premiere Studio Recording Of Disney Freaky Friday A New Musical

World Premiere Studio Recording Of Disney Freaky Friday A New Musical

World Premiere Studio Recording Of Disney Freaky Friday A New Musical

The world premiere studio recording of Disney’s Freaky Friday, the new musical based on the beloved novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films, is released digitally by Walt Disney Records today, February 10, 2017. The album is available now wherever digital music is sold (http://disneymusic.co/FreakyFriday) and streamed (http://disneymusic.co/FreakyFridayW).

Physical CDs will be available beginning March 17 and can be pre-ordered here: http://disneymusic.co/FreakyFridayAMP.

Featuring a book by Bridget Carpenter (TV’s “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood”) and a score by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning team of Tom Kitt (music) and Brian Yorkey (lyrics), creators of the celebrated Broadway musicals Next to Normal and If/Then, Freaky Friday had its world premiere at the Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA in fall 2016. The production was directed by two-time Tony nominee (Rocky Horror Show and Memphis) and artistic director of the world-renowned La Jolla Playhouse Christopher Ashley and choreographed by Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys; On Your Feet!).

Buzzfeed named the show one of the best musicals of 2016, raving, “Freaky Friday captures the best of great Disney musicals. The catchy, surprisingly deep score by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey is their best work since Next to Normal.” The Washington Post calls the show “a polished, peppy, modern fairy tale” with “up-to-the-minute pop cultural relevance,” and Variety hails its “timeless appeal” and “rousing, up-tempo score with stirring melodies.”

The two stars of the Signature Theatre production, Broadway performers Heidi Blickenstaff (Something Rotten!; [title of show]) and Emma Hunton (Next to Normal), reprise their “marvelously sung, resonantly comical” (The Washington Post) performances as mother and daughter Katherine and Ellie Blake on the studio recording. The studio cast also features Jason Gotay (Bring It On The Musical) as Adam, Alan H. Green (Sister Act, School of Rock) as Mike, Ann Harada (Avenue Q, 9 to 5, Cinderella) as Torrey, and Jake Heston Miller as Fletcher, with Shayna Blass, Tyler Bowman, Sherri Edelen, Katie Ladner, Jess LeProtto, Storm Lever, Thaddeus McCants, Tanisha Moore, Julian Ramos, Preston Sadleir, Bobby Smith, Jason Sweettooth Williams and Natasha Yvette Williams.

Music supervision for Disney’s Freaky Friday Studio Cast Recording is by Bryan Perri, orchestrations are by Tom Kitt and Michael Starobin, vocal arrangements are by Tom Kitt and Carmel Dean, and dance and incidental arrangements are by Tom Kitt.

The Freaky Friday Studio Cast Recording was recorded in Manhattan at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music in December 2016.

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the beloved novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films, is a hilarious, contemporary update of an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day.

Set in the present day, Freaky Friday features a tuneful pop-rock score, fittingly for a work that has effortlessly updated throughout its several iterations.  The novel (1972), the first film starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster (1976), the second film starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan (2003) and this new stage musical are all set in their respective present day.

Freaky Friday was developed by Disney Theatrical Productions expressly for licensing via partner Musical Theatre International first to professional and then amateur theatres, with productions taking place at La Jolla Playhouse, Cleveland Play House and the Alley Theatre this year. It follows the trajectory of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is now available to professional theatres worldwide following acclaimed engagements at La Jolla Playhouse and Paper Mill Playhouse.

Walt Disney Records Releases Zootopia Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Walt Disney Records Releases Zootopia Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Walt Disney Records Releases Zootopia Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Walt Disney Records releases the Zootopia soundtrack which features score by Oscar®-winning composer, Michael Giacchino and the end-credit song “Try Everything” performed by Grammy®-winning artist Shakira.   The original motion picture soundtrack will be available wherever music is sold today, March 4, 2016.   Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino marks his first-ever feature collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios for “Zootopia.” Featuring an 80-piece orchestra and conductor Tim Simonec, Giacchino’s score reflects the diversity of the world.

“In a world as vast as Zootopia, we needed someone who could deliver a score that can feel exotic and powerful, but also provide that same emotional intimacy,” says director Byron Howard. “We tell stories with images, Michael tells stories with music. ‘Zootopia’ is a massive film with deep emotional themes running throughout the story, and Michael was the perfect choice to bring the music of this extraordinary animal world to life.”

Adds director Rich Moore, “Zootopia is a thriving metropolis inhabited by animals from around globe, and Michael’s music has captured a wonderful international spirit that marries perfectly with the visuals. I’m very excited for audiences to experience this incredible new world we’ve created together.”

According to the composer, the score is very diverse instrumentally. “There are flavors of world music sprinkled in everywhere. But at its core, the score always follows the emotional story of Hopps and Nick.”

Giacchino’s credits feature some of the most popular and acclaimed film projects in recent history, including Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out,” “The Incredibles” and “Ratatouille,” as well as “Jurassic World,” “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” and “The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”  His score for Disney•Pixar’s 2009 feature “Up” earned him an Oscar®, a Golden Globe®, the BAFTA®, the Broadcast Film Critics’ Choice Award and two Grammy® Awards.

“I am really proud to be a part of this film,” continues Giacchino. “It’s one of those films with a huge heart and wonderfully realized characters set within a story that’s not only incredibly fun and entertaining but takes an honest look at our own world and the important issues we deal with living in such a diverse society.  That’s what really attracted me to the film—the chance to write music that reflects these kind of challenges.” 

Performed by Shakira, “Try Everything” exemplifies Judy’s journey from small-town bunny to big-city cop. The original song was written by Grammy® winning singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate. “I think that they really captured the spirit of the movie,” says Shakira, “not only in terms of the music, but the lyrics, too. It’s a song about being unafraid of your dreams and being willing to fight for them.”

The Zootopia soundtrack is now available at iTunes http://smarturl.it/zsa1, Amazon http://smarturl.it/zsama1, and wherever music is sold.
