"Allegro", "Watchmen", and more Patrick Wilson News

"Allegro": This new revival studio cast recording of Rodgers and Hammerstein's short-lived 1947 Broadway musical was released today, Tuesday Feb 3rd. It "tells the story of an earnest country doctor, Joseph Taylor, following his life from cradle to adulthood, and his journey — both literal and moral — from small town to big city, and back again.

According to Playbill.com: "The new recording of Allegro features Patrick Wilson (The Full Monty, Oklahoma!) as Joe Taylor, Jr.; Nathan Gunn (Camelot) and Audra McDonald (Ragtime, Carousel, Master Class) as Joe's parents; Marni Nixon (My Fair Lady, Nine) as Joe's Grandma; Judy Kuhn (Les Misérables, She Loves Me, Chess) as Beulah; Liz Callaway (Baby, Cats, Miss Saigon) as Emily; Laura Benanti (Gypsy, Into the Woods, Nine) as Jennie; and Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Wicked, Is He Dead?) as Joe's best friend, Charlie."

You can hear samples of the tracks at Amazon.com and can purchase MP3 files as well HERE (scroll down.) It is wonderful to hear Patrick sing again.
