Soundtrack (Musical, Soundtrack)

'Prettybelle' is a musical with a book and lyrics by Bob Merrill and music by Jule Styne. It was adapted from Jean Arnold's darkly comic novel 'Prettybelle: A lively tale of the rape and resurrection'. The show never got to Broadway, closing in 1971 during its out of town tryout in Boston. It wasn't until 1982 that record producer Bruce Yeko (who headed the Original Cast record label) reunited the principal members of the original cast (Angela Lansbury, Mark Dawson, Peter Lombard and Bert Michaels) to record a new studio cast album of the show. The Original Cast record label LP was then re-issued on CD by Varèse Sarabande in 1993 as part of their Spotlight Series.
