Dan’s been working on an intense and beautiful project – producing the demo CD for a children’s musical called I NEVER SAW ANOTHER BUTTERFLY. It’s based on the true story of kids who were imprisoned at the Nazi concentration camp Terezin – and whose poems and drawings survived to tell their stories.
The music is by Betsy Alexander and lyrics are by Joe Robinette. The cast includes Jonathan Brody, Philip Deyesso, Kate Lippstreu, Howie Michael Smith, Jordi Wallen, and April Woodall – with musical direction by Jeff Caldwell.
Here’s a clip of the rough mix of Jordi and Howie (accompanied by Jeff) singing an excerpt of THE GIFT – one of the more lighthearted songs in the show!
