I knew that this was going on some time ago; rather than a performance it was some kind of 'read-through' of the Sense & Sensibility musical. But I was very excited at the prospect of getting to listen to it! I knew this website put recordings you can listen to for free, so would they offer these as well?
I kept checking back for several months, and then gradually forgot all about it. Then the other day at work I was listening to another recording of the S&S musical on my MP3 player (yep, we're allowed to listen to music while we shelve at my library... gals, my library, and my supervisor, is the BEST) and thought to myself, Oh yeah, I haven't checked that in a while!
So I checked it.
AND THERE IT WAS. You can listen to the entire thing here.
If you are a Sierra Boggess fan as I am, these are the songs that include her:
~We Must Have Sense
~If I Could
~That's Not Love
~A Quiet Life
~That's Not Love Reprise
~I Once Knew a Girl
~I Must Have Sense
"If I Could" was changed from the original version I heard, and I really am not sure I like this one better... especially the beginning.
"That's Not Love" was also sadly changed. "I Must Have Sense" is pretty great though (and remains my favorite).
As for some other songs, these are my favorites WITHOUT Sierra, in case you are interested...
~Don't Try to Change Her (Col. Brandon)
~I'll Believe Anything (Edward)
~A Second Chance (Marianne & Brandon)
I love the fact that "A Second Chance" now includes Col. Brandon and it's kind of a duet, because it wasn't like that before, and it makes TOTAL sense! (Eh heh, no pun intended...)
