MARRY ME A LITTLE was conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman René, and directed by Keen Company's Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein. The production was nominated for a 2013 Drama League Award for Outstanding Musical Revival. The album is produced by Joel Moss, with Kurt Deutsch and Keen Company serving as Executive Producer. The Musical Director is John Bell.
Weaving together several rarely-heard Sondheim songs, MARRY ME A LITTLE tells the charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival of modern singles. Two strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, shared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.
This recording contains material from Sondheim's catalogue that was added to MARRY ME A LITTLE for the first time as part of this production: "Ah, But Underneath" (written for the London premiere of Follies), replacing "Uptown, Downtown" and "If You Can Find Me, I'm Here" (Evening Primrose) replacing "Pour Le Sport," as well as "Bring on the Girls" (from Follies). The score also features "Saturday Night," "So Many People," "A Moment With You" (from Saturday Night), "Bang!," "Silly People" (cut from A Little Night Music), "Can That Boy Foxtrot!," "All Things Bright and Beautiful," "It Wasn't Meant to Happen," "Little White House," "Who Could Be Blue?" (cut from Follies), "The Girls of Summer" (from The Girls of Summer), "Your Eyes Are Blue" (cut from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), "Marry Me A Little," "Happily Ever After" (cut from Company), and "There Won't Be Trumpets" (cut from Anyone Can Whistle).
