#FeaturedAlbum: Elaine Paige Presents The Musicals
The first lady of musical theatre Elaine Paige releases a new 3 CD deluxe album, Elaine Paige presents The Musicals on 25th November 2016, featuring some of her favourite songs from stage and screen. An absolute must for any musical theatre fan!
As a performer Elaine has made a major contribution to the modern musical. She has starred in more smash hit West End & Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation and this new album celebrates hit songs from the world of musical theatre, handpicked favourite’s of Elaine’s, from long running classics such as Cats, Aspects of Love, Wicked and Les Misérables, right through to the latest West End productions such as The Bodyguard and Dirty Dancing.
“When I made my West End debut in 1968 I couldn’t have imagined how huge a role musicals would play in my life for the next five decades, and the joy and excitement they would bring me.
And from all the thousands of messages I receive from you at BBC Radio 2 each week, I know I’m not alone in my passion!
Over the past 12 years as host on my own show on Sunday afternoons, I’ve been celebrating the music of the West End and Broadway with over 2 million of you - it’s become obvious to me how much musical theatre is enjoying a fantastic resurgence of popularity.
So what better time to share some of my own favourite songs from the stage, including a special few from Yours Truly! I hope you enjoy my choices.”
As well as the release of the new album on 25th November, Elaine is currently on tour, with a 23 date series of concerts, from October until December 2016, which sees her perform her favourite tracks, from an array of contemporary songwriters. This follows Elaine’s last solo tour in 2014 which was a sellout celebratory concert encompassing her incredible 50 year career. Hear Elaine perform her favourite songs in some of the UK’s most beautiful venues.
