Title: His Monkey Wife / Selections / O.L.C.
Label: Stage Door

UK release containing Sandy Wilson's His Monkey Wife(1971) and Aladdin (1979). The CD release continues Stage Door's London cast album series and commitment to preserve 'lost' British theatre scores of the past 50 years. In late 1970, noted British theater composer Sandy Wilson (The Boy Friend, Valmouth) was commissioned to write a new musical for the Hampstead Theatre Club's 1971/1972 Christmas Season. The subject Wilson chose was John Collier's novel His Monkey Wife (or, Married to a Chimp) and the new musical His Monkey Wife opened on December 20th 1971, running for 28 performances. His Monkey Wife is accompanied with selections from Sandy Wilson's Aladdin, a production which was commissioned by the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith in 1979, and conceived by Wilson as a musical adaptation of the classic Arabian Nights Tale. The musical featured an all-star cast including Elisabeth Welch, Christine McKenna, Belinda Lang, Joe Melia and Aubrey Woods.
