Trivia & History

Originally issued on two LPs (later on two CDs). Contains virtually the entire show, with just minor edits and occasional additional bits of narration (in addition to the extensive narration already part of the script) to compensate for not being able to see the action.


The song list above reflects the song list on the original LP issue, not the CD issue, except that we've changed the actors' names for each number to the characters' names.
