Laird Sings in New Musical “Dowager Heights”…

Posted:

 

Last week I went into the studio with some of my old friends & castmates from Mary Poppins to record a demo for the new musical “Dowager Heights”. Composed by my good friend David Delaney, and with lyrics by Nancy Stark, this show is an absolute delight, and a very clever spin on the world of Downton Abbey meets Upstairs Downstairs meets Gosford Park. It was really a lot of fun to work on this project, which I think has a ton of potential. Seems to me that the time is very nigh for an homage to this genre, and David & Nancy’s show hit’s the perfect balance between comedy and melodrama, laughter and poignancy. It was a pleasure to be involved and I am very excited to see how the project develops…
