MUSICality of Bart

JAY Records are thrilled to announce the release of PENELOPE Original Off Broadway Cast (The York Theatre Company).

Staged in 2022 to critical acclaim, PENELOPE garnered a crop of enthusiastic reviews and we look forward to this show gaining a deservedly wider audience with the energy of this cast recording. The musical is an adaptation of The Odyssey in which Penelope was the true author of the Stories of Odysseus in the form of faked letters she wrote to herself. She passed them off as correspondence from her husband, Odysseus, who was away fi ghting in the Trojan War. A beautifully modern twist on a classic tale. Composed by Stephen Weiner with book and lyrics by Peter Kellogg, the cast features Britney Nicole Simpson (Beauty and the Beast) as Penelope, Philippe Arroyo (Aladdin) as Telemachua, Leah Hocking (Billy Elliot) as Eurycleia, Cooper Howell (Emojilasnd) as Antinous, Ben Jacoby (Beautiful) as Odysseus, David LaMarr (Jersey Boys) as Mileter, Jacob Alexander Simon (A Chorus Line) as Bassanio, George Slotin (High Button Shoes) as Haius, Sean Thompson (Sunset Boulevard) as Barius and Maria Wirries (Dear Evan Hansen) as Daphne.

The cast recording premieres on digital from December 2nd and physical release on CD from December 9th.

In a coming-of-age moment, this cast recording marks the 21st recording by JAY Records of shows from the creative powerhouse that is, THE YORK THEATRE COMPANY!

This delightful and very funny Musical has a surprising Score that embraces Traditional Broadway Ballads and Showstoppers, 50’s Rock and Roll, Acapella and Comedy songs. In a score packed with great and wonderful songs, one of them, ALL ALONG, is one of the most powerful and yet subtle “Female Empowerment” songs from a Musical. However, there is another great and reflective song, THIS MOMENT IS ALL. We take great pleasure in sharing this lovely song for your enjoyment.

MUSICality of Bart

To those who have been asking for a new MUSICality album, the time has come. JAY is very pleased to announce the release of THE MUSICality OF BART. Lionel Bart was one of the few British Musical Theatre authors to have conquered the World. The others include Ivor Novello, Noel Coward, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sandy Wilson and Julian Slade. Although Lionel Bart was mostly known for his Masterwork OLIVER!, his genius and gift at writing tuneful, innovative and evocative scores shine through on his other not so well known Musicals such as BLITZ!, MAGGIE MAY and TWANG! Here is a collection of Lionel Bart’s songs to showcase his composing versatility from beautiful ballads to pop and infectious singalong songs. Featuring some of the West End and Opera stars, this album is the perfect introduction to Lionel Bart’s genius at composing infectious scores and songs. Try getting MAGGIE, MAGGIE MAY out of your mind, once you have heard the song, especially as sung by Graham Bickley here.

PENELOPE ORIGINAL OFF BROADWAY CAST
DECEMBER 2nd - 9th RELEASE WINDOW


The Musical adapted The Odyssey in an imaginary situation in which Penelope was really the author of the Stories of Odysseus in the form of faked letters that she wrote to herself, passing off as correspondence from her husband, Odysseus, who was away fighting in the Trojan War. This delightful and very funny Musical has a surprising Score that embraces Traditional Broadway Ballads and Showstoppers, 50’s Rock and Roll, Acapella and Comedy songs. In a score packed with great and wonderful songs, one of them, ALL ALONG, is one of the most powerful and yet subtle “Female Empowerment” songs from a Musical. However, there is another great and reflective song, THIS MOMENT IS ALL. Check back for sample of these and other tracks pre release.
