MISIA: A New Musical

MISIA is a new musical with a previously undiscovered score by the legendary composer Vernon Duke and a new book and lyrics by Barry Singer. It has just been released in its world premiere recording by PS Classics, starring Marin Mazzie as Misia Sert, the infamous muse and patroness of fin de siecle Paris, whose intimates and discoveries included Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Auguste Renoir, Marcel Proust, “Coco” Chanel and Serge Diaghilev, all of whom appear as characters in MISIA. The CD features new orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick and an all-star Broadway cast: Bobby Steggert, Jonathan Freeman, Marc Kudisch, Jason Danieley, Lauren Worsham, Telly Leung, Philip Chaffin, Stephen DeRosa, Eddie Korbich and Darcy Dunn.
