Album Notes
George M. Cohan rose from poverty to become the outstanding entertainer of his day. He sang, he danced; he wrote the tremendously popular songs and shows that he put across. ASCAP award-winning writer Chip Deffaa's musical play "George M. Cohan: In his Own Words" (published and licensed by Samuel French Inc.) captures vividly the life and times of this famed showman.

This album of highlights from the show, featuring Johnny Petersen and company, includes 11 beloved Cohan songs: "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Give My Regards to Broadway," "H-A-R-R-I-G-A-N," "The Man who Owns Broadway," "Over There," and more--24 minutes of classic Americana. (And no one sings these numbers better than Petersen.) The album gives a feel for the show--a proven crowd-pleaser which received rave reviews in its New York debut and is now available from Samuel French Inc. for licensing anywhere. (The show--suitable for regional theaters, community theaters, high schools and colleges--is written for a cast of 14; additional chorus members may be added, if desired.)

Donald Lyons, in The New York Post, raved: "This musical is a dandy.... It is a terrific, surprisingly moving show with an amazing roster of Cohan songs..... A dynamically convincing picture of a man deeply attached to his family, to his country and the footlights--and nothing else.... I recommend this wonderful, seemingly--but only seemingly--simple show."

Marjorie Gunner, in The New Voice of New York, hailed the show as "solid musical entertainment... written and staged... in George M. Cohan's style. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's enthusiastic applause coincided with my hope 'George M. Cohan' finds the future it deserves. Bravo!"

And David Hurst, in Next Magazine, wrote: "Will leave you with a huge, patriotic lump in your throat... There's Cohan's timeless music... [sung] with heartbreaking honesty."
