News   Follies Tony Nominee Jayne Houdyshell Records Solo Version of "Broadway Baby," Now Available
Jayne Houdyshell, who received a 2012 Tony nomination for her performance as Hattie in the recent Broadway revival of Follies, has recorded a solo version of her show-stopping "Broadway Baby."

According to a posting on the website of PS Classics, the label that released the cast recording of the award-winning revival, "The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently asked if they could include 'Broadway Baby' on a compilation CD they were doing, of songs from musicals set in New York City. We of course said yes, but we also felt the track might be more appropriate on a compilation disc as a Hattie solo, without Solange and the Whitmans mysteriously returning at the end. So the wonderful Jayne Houdyshell went back into the studio last month and recorded a new ending, and as a gift to our customers, we thought we'd make the solo track available here."
