Like You Like It / O.s.c.r. [Explicit Content]
All the world's a mall in Like You Like It, a totally awesome blend of As You Like It and the John Hughes movies of the 1980s. The winner of Best Musical at the 2009 NY Innovative Theatre Awards for the lauded Gallery Players production and a festival favorite in the inaugural NYMF, Like You Like It has been performed extensively in regional theaters, international festivals, colleges and high schools. With music by Daniel S. Acquisto and words by Sammy Buck, the studio cast recording features Alison Luff (Les Miserables, Matilda, Wicked National Tour), Derek Klena (Anastasia, Diner, Dogfight), Patti Murin (Lysistra Jones, Xanadu), Robin de Jesus (In the Heights, Wicked), Nick Cearley (The Skivvies, Pageant), Bonnie Milligan (Kinky Boots National Tour), Kate Rockwell (Rock of Ages, Bring It On), Sam Underwood (Fox's The Following, Dexter) and Lesli Margherita (Dames at Sea, Matilda), with a special bonus track of a song cut from the show, performed by Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie & Clyde) and Nathan Johnson (Like You Like It at The Gallery Players). The ensemble features Elisabeth Ness (Redheads Anonymous), Chandler Reeves (Unlock'd), Aaron Riesebeck, Emily Rogers (If/Then National Tour) and Patrick Shelton. Students from groups such as Broadway Workshop, the NewArts/Newtown Musicals and Kidz Theater perform as a special teen ensemble in a song written specifically for the Like You Like It High School Edition: Hillary Fisher, Michael Nigro (Sound of Music Live!), Joshua Spencer and Lexi Tobin (A Rockin Midsummer Night's Dream).
