320 Kbps Released February 9, 2018
Yellow Sound Label

Our current download comes from the utterly beguiling studio cast recording of Kris Kringle the Musical.

Based on an original story by Maria Ciampi, who wrote the book, and featuring music and lyrics by Tim Janis and Angelo Natalie (along with additional lyrics by Ciampi), the tuner tells the untold story of Kringle while he was still a young man. It played off-Broadway last December and this recording was made only a couple of months ago.

A terrific array of performers gathered together for this delightful Yellow Sound Label release, including Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies, Tuck Everlasting) who sings the title role. At his side are, among others, Kim Crosby (Cinderella in the original production of Into the Woods), Nikki Renée Daniels (The Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess, The Book of Mormon), and Mary Stout (Jane Eyre), and they’re all sounding wonderful.

Ciampi chose the track we’re sharing with you; it’s the show’s opening number. She picked it because she felt it fully captures the heartwarming tone of the show. Further, Ciampi told us, “We all root for dreamers, and most of us are dreamers ourselves.  Through storytelling and song, we love to experience the chaotic nebula of the protagonist burst into a dancing star.  The track, ‘Prologue & Kris Kringle,’ introduces young Kris Kringle, a chaotic, jobless toymaker who has discovered in the stars a toy that he promises to make in memory of his grandma.  As foreshadowed in that song, the story of Kris’s journey to make that toy is told with laughter, love, and even tears as he becomes a dancing star and, in the process, finds and heals his broken family.”

After you’ve listened to this track, we’re pretty sure you’re going to want to hear where Kris Kringle the Musical heads. You can sample from other tracks and purchase the album by clicking here.
