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
British theatre scores of the past 50 years.
Evoking the physical passion and romantic landscape of the original Thomas Hardy

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

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
