In Studio with the Cast Recording of The Last Five Years: Part One
The 2002 original cast recording of The Last Five Years was Ghostlight Records’ first cast album and remains one of the label's best-selling titles. Still, the show’s creator Jason Robert Brown felt it was important to honor the revival of the Off-Broadway classic with a recording of its own that would allow the talents of Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor to create a different musical experience than fans of the show are used to. Here, as Wolfe performs “Still Hurting,” Brown chats with Playbill about why he chose to record everyone together in the same room despite the difficulties of doing so.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
