Session Girls (Original Concert Cast Recording) - Live at Feinstein's / 54 Below [CD]
Session Girls, the new musical by three-time Emmy nominee Mia Moravis, gives us the inside scoop on music producer Joli Nye (Lauren Worsham, A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder), bawdy backup vocalist Cocoa (Jill Abramovitz, Fiddler on the Roof), classical cellist Mariana (Oyoyo Joi, The Book Of Mormon), and their trials and tribulations as they navigate the music world, their love lives, and unanticipated change.
The subplot covers a harrowing major label/recording studio merger, helmed by Terrence Rand (Brian Charles Rooney, The Threepenny Opera), who is smitten in a most gentlemanly way with his new producer, Joli and, by happenstance, in the uncomfortable position of calming his anxious theater producer pal, Mitchie Karabakis (Robbie Rozelle, in a cameo performance). Max Beft (Ryan Andes, Big Fish; Sweeney Todd) is a studio engineer, enthralled with Cocoa, much to the chagrin of his fiancée Maya (Megan McGinnis, Daddy Long Legs; Les Misérables ) and her cousin, Celia Webb (Lisa O’Hare, A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder), an executive at the studio. Amidst all this, cellist Rouald Finckel (Bart Shatto, War Paint; Les Misérables), fiancé to Mariana, is hoping for marriage, but Mariana isn’t ready, and has business plans with Delivery Guy (Jeff Hiller, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson; Nightcap). Cocoa’s Nashville musician cousin, Lucinda (Emily Padgett, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory), arrives with unbridled—and sometimes unwelcome—enthusiasm.
Recorded live at Feinstein’s/54 Below, Session Girls is produced by Michael J. Moritz Jr.
