Rooms - a new Off Broadway musical#1
Posted: 4/25/09 at 12:17pm
I've just discovered what looks like a great new musical, currently playing at New World Stages in New York - "Rooms". It's set in Glasgow in the 70s and the composer is originally from Glasgow. The fabulous Leslie Kritzer is one of the two person cast. The clips of songs on the show's website sound fantastic. So I think I've now found my extra show to book for my New York trip! (Sorry - but any thoughts of 9 to 5 have now gone out the window. This score sounds much more up my musical and lyrical street!)

I thought this looked great :)
Anybody know if there's a cast recording?

There does not appear to be a cast recording - not sure if one is planned. I'd certainly love to get hold of one - the sound clips and videos of songs on the website sound great.

Stopping by to say that Rooms is a great addition to the off-Broadway scene, and should be definitely be seen. I love the score and the actors are wonderful. The book's a little predictable, but really, the show is totally worth the money for the performances alone. And the first two rows are $20, so there really isn't a reason to not see it.

Thanks for the recommendation, viola - especially the info about the front 2 rows being just $20! I would actually pay extra for the front row! So to have a front row seat for just 20 bucks is fantastic. I have now booked an aisle seat in the front row - and I'm really excited about seeing this!
