High Society (1998 Original Broadway Cast Recording)

Arthur Kopit's 1998 Broadway stage adaptation of the film High Society was not a success (although it did introduce audiences to Anna Kendrick, who received a Tony nomination for her performance as Dinah).  Still, the cast album is a worthwhile addition to the discography of Randy Graff, who deliciously duets on the Porter classics "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" (with Stephen Bogardus) and "I'm Getting Myself Ready For You" (with John McMartin). More important, and worth the price of the whole album all by itself, is Graff's heart-on-sleeve, open-lunged performance of "He's a Right Guy."
