Songs:

ACT ONE

Time to Make Time (CAST)

THEATER KID (LINCOLN)

The first solo in the show, sung by Lincoln. Here is our theater kid, Leland Parker McGuire debuting it.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS (CHARLEY)

After Theater Kid, Lincoln wants to know Charley’s back story. Charley responds to “Why are you here?” with this song while playing the piano. I envision Lincoln, who has not danced yet in the show, demonstrating that talent here, in a sand dance break in the middle. Here is Philip Trossarello honoring us with his version.

WASHINGTON POST MARCH/GOD BLESS SOUSA; HE’S SO USA (THE DRAGOONS)

MAGIC IN MY LIFE (ROBERTA, LINCOLN)

 THE HOPE CAROL (MARGERY)

This is the song Margery sings for her debut night, and I’m pleased to present it now with Ashley Knaack as the first other than its author, the late Jan Goldsberry, ever to record it.

THE OBLIGATORY BIG TIME DANCE (CAST)

IN THE DARK (ALEX)

Closing act one with a mystery, Alex stands on stage alone, pledging to find Lincoln, who has run off into the night.

ACT TWO


BROKEN (LINCOLN, ALEX)

Act two starts with Lincoln, sitting in the moonlit field, singing of the broken trust between him and his father. He is joined by Alex who finds him and lends his support. This recording is a reworking from the original, so I begin singing Lincoln’s part until we catch up to what was salvaged from the original song with included a now-deleted character.

IN THE DARK REPRISE (MARGERY)

SILLY ME (ROBERTA)

Every good musical needs a showstopper, and Michele Quintero pulls out all the stops as Madam Ravin in her second act stage illusion spectacular.

WE “RE ALL OK. OK? (HELOISE AND THE CHORUS)

Traveling tent shows often featured sing-alongs, and since so many people have compared this show to Pippin…well, why not. Heloise performs it, played here by Julie Lyn Barber, and the chorus, Men, and Women, dressed in powdered wigs and lots of lace.

THE INSIDE ME (ALEX)

A JOYFUL HEART (MARGERY, LINCOLN, ALEX)

I wanted to include this song written by my late wife Jan, as the song Lincoln secretly writes for his mother to sing near the end of act two It is voiced here by Ashley Knaack. Leland Parker McGuire, and Ethan Mathias.

BROKEN REPRISE (HELOISE)

THESE ARE THE DAYS (CAST)
