I am always pleased to stumble across new theatre websites, especially when they offer something that doesn’t really exist elsewhere. About a month ago, I wrote about a fantastic website – CastAlbums.org. It’s an amazing database resource for musical theatre recordings…

Via an advert on that website, I’ve discovered another site that complements CastAlbums perfectly – ArkivSong.com. It’s an American website where you can buy soundtracks, including ones that you’d struggle to find on Amazon!

Review: Lauren Kennedy (Menier Chocolate Factory)

Originally posted on March 16th Lauren Kennedy

She also performed in Trevor Nunn’s South Pacific at the National Theatre in London. She is also often associated with Jason Robert Brown, and played the original Cathy in his show, The Last Five Years
