This LP is an original cast recording of Promenade, book by Maria Irene Fornes and music by the Rev. Al Carmines, both winners of the Oscar of off-broadway theater, the Obie award. The show debuted in 1969 in the Promenade Theater, which was named for it. The premise is rather like Candide: Two prisoners escape and , in an attempt to worm their way into high society encounter all sorts of situations and characters , who appear in a variety of vignettes. True to its period, the show presents quite a bit of social commentary through its exuberant, funny, and often heartwrenching songs. Al's music draws on his early influences of gospel, vaudeville and opera, mainly, which he interprets in his own melodic, irrepressible style. The songs are all standouts, and the structure of the play enables each one to be enjoyed as an independent entity, making them work well as a recording. "Capricious and Fickle", sung by the incomparable Alice Playten, is considered by many to be one of the best theater songs ever written . Other standouts include the sardonic "Cigarette Song" with its distinctive take on life , the rollicking "Unrequited Love", and the searing self-knowledge of "I Saw a Man". Though tremendously appealing, "Promenade" confronts its audience as well as entertaining it. Along with the originality of words and music, it is this confrontational quality which insures its central place in the avant-garde theater that flourished in New York's Greenwich Village in the 1960's and 1970s.
