Spotify. Apple Music. Amazon Prime Music. Pandora. YouTube. The world of music has changed considerably over the course of the last century, let alone in just this century so far. With the millennium kicking off with the height of Napster and internet music leading headstrong into the MP3 era eventually dominated by Apple with the iPod and eventually the iPhone, iPad, iWatch and far beyond. Yet, what has altered even more than the most popular methods utilized by record companies of all different shapes and sizes in releasing music to the world is how we actually receive that music. And, more importantly how - and if - we pay for it. Indeed, the prime target of attention and equal parts appreciation and condemnation in the music industry now is the advent and increasing awareness afforded to streaming music services. Whereas iTunes or Amazon allows users to purchase music by the track or by the album, often with a 30-second preview or even a free track or bonus track incentive provided to the purchaser, streaming services are much less structured and offer a preponderance of product - often over millions of tracks available to listen to for free. Of course, free listeners are inundated with advertisements littered across the pages of the sites and occasional commercial interruptions may crop up in their listening, but for a small fee - many as less as $9.99 - users may even avoid the advertisements and commercials in order to enjoy an even more serene listening experience, all for a fraction of the cost of purchasing an entire music library. Frankly, a monthly subscription to most music services costs even less than purchasing a single digital album by many of the most popular artists - or, for that matter the most popular Broadway recordings. So, how does the streaming music service revolution effect the boutique musical theatre recording industry? Over the last several months, I have sought to find out the answer to that precise question by speaking to many of the most important and influential individuals in the field about precisely that.

Pull up your boots and hold onto your hats when this all-dancing, all-singing, all-new production of the rip-roarin' musical comedy classic bursts onto the Ogunquit Playhouse stage September 7 to October 1.  SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS is a big, brawling, rollicking show filled with rambunctious energy and set in 1850s Oregon Territory with a book by Lawrence Kasha and David Landay, lyrics by Johnny Mercer, music by Gene de Paul, and new songs by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn. This beloved musical based on the glorious MGM hit film and Stephen Vincent Benet's short story 'The Sobbin' Women' tells the story of Adam Pontipee and his backwoods brothers' unusual pursuit of brides. When Adam goes to town to get a wife, he miraculously convinces the beautiful and feisty Milly to marry him that same day, and then she immediately starts reforming her six rowdy brothers-in-law. When her plan to marry off the boys backfires, this exuberant rousing musical kicks into high gear with a combination of daredevil dancing and wonderful songs like 'Goin' Courtin,' “Sobbin' Women,” and 'Wonderful, Wonderful Day.'
