Little by Little, the Brad Ross-Ellen Greenfield-Hal Hackady musical about love and friendship, which ran at NYC's York Theatre Jan. 21-Feb. 28, will get an original cast CD. Varese Sarabande is recording the show Mar. 5 at Clinton Studios in Manhattan. No release date has yet been announced. Bruce Kimmel is producing the disk, which features the three Off Broadway stars: Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde), Liz Larsen (Starmites, The Most Happy Fella, A New Brain) and Darrin Baker (The Scarlet Pimpernel, Sunset Boulevard). Larsen, Noll and Baker complete the romantic triangle at the center of Little by Little.
A sung-through piece, the musical follows a man and two women from childhood friendship to the love triangle which evolves as they grow into adults. Brad Ross wrote the music, while Ellen Greenfield and Hal Hackady penned the lyrics. Hackady, known for his playful wordplay, wrote Goodtime Charlie , among other works. Greenfield and Annette Jolles -- who also directed -- authored the original story.
