"Chanteuse" in Spring 2012
New Cast Recordings
"Chanteuse" finished its Austin run January 28, 2012 but we have videos of songs from the Austin and Salado productions on YouTube. Go to "snardfluk" or "snardfluk's page" on YouTube to see them. You can see our wonderful cast from the Austin (Kelly Connaughton as "Johanna", Danica McKinney as "Darcy" and Timothy McKinney as "Sid") and Salado (Rose Mitchell as "Johanna", Chloe Vance as "Darcy" and Robert L. Schneider as "Sid") productions making us proud of their performances.
In "Chanteuse" two young women from Texas, Johanna Clarke and Darcy Bailey, go to New York's Greenwich Village to be folk singers in 1959. They are first hired by Sidney Feldman, a former blacklisted comic, who owns The Colloquy Coffeehouse. "Chanteuse" follows the careers and friendships of these three through the turbulent years of the 1960s and 70s up to Darcy's return to perform at her college in 1981.
The "Songs from Chanteuse" CD was released in February 2011. Ask for it at Waterloo Records or Book Woman in Austin, Texas or order from Richard Paul Thomas at email@example.com. The roles of Johanna, Darcy and Sid are sung by Mary Bentley, Ashley Edwards and Richard Paul Thomas, respectively. Lyrics and music are by Louise Richardson. Guitar arrangements are by Richard Paul Thomas. Piano arrangements are by Nelda Milligan and Tyler Mabry.
