Do You Hear the People Sing? Les Miserables (OC 1987) Michael Maguire, Company A world-wide hit, Les Miserables closes its 16-year run on Broadway in May of 2003. The popular and cricially-acclaimed adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel remains immensely popular locally, despite the fact that the current run marks its eights appearance in St. Louis.
Interview with Dallyn Vail Bayles who plays Enjolras in the curent tour of Les Miserables.
Do You Hear the People Sing? / Our Time Out on Broadway (OC 1996) Chris Brenner, Tracy Collins, Qwenten Schumacher, Company Conceived by New Line Theatre's founder and artistic director Scott Miller (co-host of Break a Leg at KDHX), Out on Broadway is a revue of classic and modern show tunes done from a gay male perspective. This medley combines an anthem from Les Miserables with a song from Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along.
On My Own Back to Before (1999) Kim Criswell, National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Martin Yates From Les Miserables, the song in which Eponine realizes that Marius is doomed. It's a role Kim Criswell says she's unlikely to ever get the chance to play on stage, hence its inclusion on this album.
No. 6 Wins the Election The Prisoner, File 2 (2003) Un-credited studio musicians I concluded the show with four short cuts from three new discs of music from the soundtrack of the ground-breaking fantasy TV series The Prisoner, conceived by and starring Patrick McGoohan as a secret agent who resigns and is kidnapped and taken to the mysterious "Village" where everyone has a number instead of a name. No. 2 keeps trying to get No. 6 (McGoohan) to say why he resigned and keeps getting replaced when he fails. And who is the mysterious No. 1? This cut is from the episode "Free For All", in which No. 6 stands for election to the post of No. 2 and wins - only to discover that the whole business is rigged from the beginning.
Nightclub The Prisoner, File 2 (2003) Un-credited studio musicians Also from "Free for All"
European Drive The Prisoner, File 3 (2003) Un-credited studio musicians From "Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darling", in which No. 6's mind is implanted in the body of another man, who will use No. 6's knowledge to find the scientist who created the mind-transfer process and obtain the secret for use by the Village. In typical fashion, No. 6 turns the tables.
End Titles The Prisoner, File 1 (2003) Un-credited studio musicians The standard end-title sequence for the series.
