A new score for off-Broadway and regional theatre! The recording features a cast of the brightest young stars of Broadway: Matt Bogart, Danny Gurwin, Lauren Kennedy, Chad Kimball and Leslie Kritzer. This is a continuation of Jay's series of original cast albums from The York Theatre in New York.
Such a great title!

"There aren't any reviews for this CD, so I thought I'd leave one so people have a little more of an idea about I Sing.
I must say that there is no denying the plot revolves around a group of angsty 20-somethings, so if you'd find that unattractive this may be a con to buying I Sing. However, it's hard to find part of the plot that you can't relate to.. I personally love the plot.
The music itself was well written and performed even better. Some of my personal favorites are I Sing, My Favorite Guy, What Alan Likes, and Smile Through the Pain just to name a few.
As far as the musical style, I'd say this is a good combination of Fame on 42nd Street and Rent, plus a little something extra.
This is really a great CD if you're looking for something with fun (and mildly-adult oriented) songs with lots of melody and heart."

"With 2 cds of endless repeated chords, they don't have much to say."
I Sing! But I missed the audition.

"I recently got talking to a directing friend of mine and he said he was going to produce an Australian cast for I SING! Well, being an exceptional entrepreneur, I purchased the CD.
To my displeasure, the show was cancelled, and I was stuck with this CD. But don't worry, there's a happy ending.
I LOVED it! I still can't get the songs outa my head. And hey, now I'm prepared for the next guy to produce it.
But be warned, you can't listen to each track in isolation, these tracks tell a story. Unlike several other shows I know where it's like "OMG! We haven't had a song in 3 pages, let's insert one about this unimportant piece of furniture and call it absurdist theatre!"...
These tracks have a good, solid story behind them. Discover it for yourself."
