First Lady Suite

First Lady Suite: This musical by the brilliant Michael John LaChiusa first opened Off-Broadway in 1993. It deals with four of the USA’s Ladies: Eleanor Roosevelt, Mamie Eisenhower, Bess Truman and Jacqueline Kennedy and features a great score that offers singing actresses four super roles. A revised version of the show appeared in Los Angeles in 2002, and the show eventually made it to the UK in 2009. Thank goodness that a cast recording (of the 2002 version with the LA cast) was released. It’s a great to be able to listen to another exciting score from one of musical theatre’s most prolific and compelling serious contemporary composer-lyricists.
