Format: Audio CD
Broadway Records has once again ventured from the tried and true, and has announced the release of a new production from the creative team of Andrew Gerle and Eddie Sugarman. With only a handful of productions under its belt, “Meet John Doe” should be able to branch into the regional theater world with this passionate studio cast recording featuring the talents of Heidi Blickenstaff (“[title of show]”), James Moye ("Million Dollar Quartet"), and Robert Cuccioli ("Jekyll & Hyde").

Blickenstaff reprises her role from the 2007 Ford's Theatre production as Ann Mitchell, a reporter who gets her pink slip. It’s 1932, and with the desperate times of the Depression fueling her creativity, her publication of a suicide letter from a fictional "John Doe," catches the attention of the American people and triggers their empathy toward the struggles of the working man. With the ruse in place, she finds an unemployed baseball player to become the face of “John Doe,” as the mythical character continues to gain popularity. Conflicts arise as the rich owner of Mitchell’s current / former / current again employer wants to use “John” for personal gain, and the baseball player begins to fall for Ann.

The performers on the recording were taken from past productions at both the aforementioned Ford’s Theatre, and the Porchlight Music Theater in Chicago. Broadway veterans John Jellison (“Memphis”) and Andrew Keenan-Bolger (“Newsies”) were also brought in to add clout to the Jonathan Larson Award-winning musical. Gerle’s melodies are Broadway ready, especially when powerhouse Blickenstaff is allowed to belt the daylights out of his songs.

As a lifelong musical theater fan, I'm always eager for new musicals. These days, however, I'm disappointed more often than not by pop scores or unmelodious through-sung shows. This one is perfect! A good musical theater score, true to its source material, with catchy songs in the period of the show and very clever lyrics. (It's newspaper-oriented, and I'm a newspaper copy editor--my favorite song is "Page 8, at the Top/Fast Talking.") It's a wonderful cast, too. Heidi Blickenstaff is terrific, and I particularly like John Jellison as her editor. If you like musicals in the best traditions, you'll love this!

I haven't been so enamored with a musical score since Jason Robert Brown's "Parade". I'm obsessed and can't stop listening to it. The quality of the writing and the melodies are absolutely stunning. I just hope and pray that this recording finds its way into the hands and heart of a deep-pocket Broadway producer who brings the show to New York. We'll gladly call him John Dough ...

This score manages to evoke the movie's era in both music and lyrics while still embodying a modern sensibility. The cast is supreme, and the adaptation would make Capra proud.
