Note on Digital Perusal: Samuel French's new digital perusal process grants easy, digital access to music perusals while protecting the intellectual property of our composers, book writers, and lyricists. Samuel French perusals are intended to be used for finding the perfect show to fit your theater, casting pool, and resources. Perusals should be used to get acquainted with the music and script. They cannot be used to hold auditions, produce the show without a license, or find sheet music for a separate performance.
A women's therapy group, headed by group leader, Grace, is transformed forever when Dena joins the group and winds up being a catalyst for change in the lives of Sage, a flower child of the 1980s; Liz, a powerful businesswoman who has problems balancing work and home; Chlo, a gay, bank employee and single mom of a teenage son; and Molly, a mother of two young children who is dealing with weight issues. Featuring tuneful, memorable music by Adryan Russ and insightful lyrics by Russ and Doug Haverty, Inside Out, is every bit as timely today as it was when it premiered off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theater, where it received excellent reviews and praise for its top-notch six-member ensemble: Tony Award nominee Jan Maxwell, Tony nominee, Ann Crumb (Aspects of Love, Anna Karenina), Harrriett D. Foy (Once On This Island, Mamma Mia), Kathleen Mahony-Bennett (Anything Goes), Cass Morgan (Pump Boys & Dinettes, Memphis), and Julie Prosser (Baby).
Since its initial off-Broadway run, Inside Out has had productions all over the United States and overseas as a delicious throwback to the 1980s and the rise of therapy as a way to deal with daily life. Its original cast recording, with orchestrations by Ned Ginsburg, was first released on DRG Records. When Kritzerland Record's Bruce Kimmel discovered that DRG’s issue was out of print, he decided to completely remix, remaster and repackage it: www.kritzerland.com/insideOut.htm
