Doug Stewart lives in St. George, Utah.  One of the most influential writers in the history of Latter-day drama, Stewart was the playwright and lyricist of the groundbreaking Latter-day Saint-themed musical Saturday’s Warrior (1974), a project staged by California college students independent of institutional Church sponsorship.

Posted on Apr 9, 2014 in Cast Albums Demo CDs DVDs

by Chip Deffaa The Original Cast Album starring Kimberly Faye Greenburg Fanny Brice worked her way up from singing on street corners for pennies as a kid, to burlesque, to Broadway… to becoming America’s highest-paid singing comedienne. She fell for a dashing confidence man, Nicky Arnstein–and when she introduced her immortal “My Man,” the whole country knew she was singing about him. The show was originally produced Off-Broadway in New York at St. Luke’s Theater; it has subsequently been revived twice in New York by The 13th Street Repertory Company. It has been equally well-received in productions at the American Century Theater, Arlington, Virginia; the Rosen Theater, Wayne, New Jersey; and at the Phoenix Stage, Naugatuck, Connecticut. It will be produced next at the Open-Eye Theater, Margaretville, New York. Everyone loves a good rags-to-riches story. SONG LIST Act One:...
