Philadelphia Chickens with CD (Audio)by Sandra Boynton
Synopses & Reviews
That curious Boynton pizzazz takes to the stage in PHILADELPHIA CHICKENS, a zippy musical production for kids and way beyond. And just wait till you hear who's in the cast...
With these performers, words and pictures by Sandra Boynton, and music by the incomparable Rhinoceros Tap team of Boynton & Ford, you have to hear it to believe it. And even then, it may take a while.
This title contains a full-colour songbook of 17 and a half songs with a full-length, fully orchestrated CD of original songs, performed by a cast which includes: The Bacon Brothers, Scott Bakula, Kevin Kline, Laura Linney, Patti LuPone, Natasha Richardson, Eric Stoltz, Meryle Street and more.
America's beloved illustrator and children's author combines her buoyant genius with some of the most talented people on the stage, presenting that rarest of kids' musical disks--one whose inimitable lyrics and music make it as sing-along, dance-along, cluck-along for parents as it is for their children. Full color.
Ladybug knows she was born to be a star. She can't wait to sing and dance in her newest musical, which will be her best show ever. Ladybug won't let anyone get in the way of her performance...especially her little brother, Fly. He's a pest! But Fly is determined to be part of the act, no matter what. Is the show big enough for this sibling rivalry?
This sing-along, read-aloud, funny tribute to the budding Broadway star in all of us is sure to be a smash hit, and shows that working together really does pay off.
Grammy nominee. #1 New York Times bestseller. And, with 960,000 copies in print, a Recording Industry Association of America Platinum album. What an event! What a show! It's Philadelphia Chickens--the catchy and quirky, tuneful and toe-tapping, exuberant, unexpected, and totally endearing family-musical-in-a-book.
Here is a full-color songbook of 17 1/2 illustrated story-poems, and a full-length, fully orchestrated CD of original songs performed by such luminaries as Patti LuPone, Kevin Kline, Meryl Streep, The Bacon Brothers, and Laura Linney, who pleads "Please, Can I Keep It?"--it followed me home. / What exactly it is/ I don't know. Also joining in are Eric Stoltz, Scott
