Stage Door Records announce the first complete recording of the 1999 West End musical 'Tess Of The D'Urbervilles' is to be released on September 29th, 2014. The CD release continues Stage Door’s London cast album series and commitment to preserve ‘lost’
British theatre scores of the past 50 years.

Evoking the physical passion and romantic landscape of the original Thomas Hardy novel, Stephen Edwards’ musical adaptation toured the UK between September and October 1999, then ransferred to London’s Savoy Theatre on November 10th, 1999 and was soon after branded "the last great musical flop of the Millennium”. It closed on January 15th, 2000 after just 77 performances.

Nearly 15 years later, this is the first complete album representation of Stephen Edwards’
score. Featuring tracks from the 1999 West End production alongside the previously unreleased 1998 studio cast recording, the album includes performances by Philippa Healey, Alasdair Harvey, Jonathan Monks, Cathy Sara, Martin Crewes, Mark Umbers, Heather Craney, Eliza Lumley and a supporting company of forty singers.

At the turn of the 20th century, Stella Adler became a child star of the Yiddish stage in New York, where she was being groomed to refine acting craft and, eventually, help pioneer its modern gold standard: method acting.
