Atlantic Records' weekly soundtrack releases of music from each episode of Fosse/Verdon continue with "Heart" from Damn Yankees. Recreating performances from the Jerry Ross-Richard Adler musical's 1955 original Broadway cast are PJ Benjamin (Wicked), Nick Blaemire (Godspell), Brian Calí (Pretty Woman The Musical), and Aaron Kaburick (Hello, Dolly!).
The song, featured in Fosse/Verson's second episode "Who's Got the Pain?," is currently available for streaming and purchase on digital platforms, including iTunes and Spotify. "Who's Got the Pain?" premieres tonight at 10 PMET on FX.
The release follows last week's soundtrack from the series' first episode, which featured performances of "Cabaret" by Kelli Barrett, "Big Spender" by Bianca Marroquín and Rema Webb, and Alex Lacamoire's original "Fosse/Verdon Theme."
Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams star as Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon respectively in this new series from executive producers (and Hamilton collaborators) Lin-Manuel Miranda and Thomas Kail, George Stelzner, Joel Fields, Nicole Fosse, and Dear Evan Hansen bookwriter Steven Levenson (who penned the series' first episode and serves as showrunner).
Recreating such iconic Fosse and Verdon staples as "Who's Got the Pain?" and "Big Spender" are choreographers Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, Cats) and Broadway alum Susan Misner, also appearing as Joan McCracken.
Along with Marroquín, Webb, Barrett, Benjamin, Blaemire, Calí, and Kaburick, the cast includes such Broadway vets as Norbert Leo Butz (as playwright Paddy Chayefsky) and Tyler Hanes (as Chicago star Jerry Orbach).
