Originally titled The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown, the musical's score became a cult favorite of theatre fans after several performances of such songs as "Run Away With Me," "Say the Word," and "Freedom" went viral on YouTube. More than 15,000 pieces of digital music from the score have already been sold since 2009.
