Stephen really does have a great voice. And "It's Your Wedding Day" made me want to get up and dance - haha! I'm really looking forward to the cast recording. re: WEDDING SINGER!!!

I can't wait to hear more songs from this. It'll be so long until a cast recording comes out though. And based on what I've heard I'll definitley want it. I really really want to hear the demo.

February 7! Can't wait!

(I hope, since they kept the "Want To Grow Old With You" from the movie, they'll also keep, "I Want To Die" too!)

I think "I want to grow old with you" on that site is from the demo with Amy Spanger.

I thought it was Julia, too. Which is embarassing, cause I'm a pretty big Amy Spangler fan... oops!

I'm really psyched about this show, too! Stephen Lynch is just about perfect for this role.

I'm not a fan of Steven Lynch as a comedian (I'm not a fan of any comedian who does jokey songs), but I think he's PERFECT as a musical theater actor. He has the voice, the looks, the charisma, and the talent to make it big. And "Wedding Singer" is THE perfect vehicle to launch his Broadway/Theater career.

I must be the only one who is :1) not interested in another cliche movie adaptation and 2) "I wanna grow old with you" song. I enjoyed the movie very much and the song in teh movie but it doesn't scream BROADWAY MUSICAL HIT to me. Anyways, to each his/her own.

I didn't want to see this, but after hearing those songs, my mind may be changing.

Yeah i'm not a huge fan of the Movie to stage comparison...but this seems different and not just b/c it has the awesome stephen lynch and also this one seems really faithful to making it a fun throwback to the eighties...ala Hairspray to the sixties...not saying its anything like hairspray...but it should be a whole lot of fun.

I want to see it so badly! I wish I was going to NYC in early April instead of early March :/.
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

I wish they'd expanded "I Want To Grow Old With You" so it was more...impressive. I mean, if Adam Sandler can sing it well then someone's vocal chops are not being tested.

Do all love ballads need to test a singer's range? I think the version of the song in the show will serve the same purpose as the movie: kind of a cute way for the Robbie character to express his love for Julia. If you've heard Stephen sing on his CDs or in person, you know he obviously has the voice to belt anything they may throw at him.

Like someone else said, I hope that they also kept the "I Want to Die" song as well. Would love to hear Stephen sing that!
