Because you so kindly subscribe to this Newsletter, you are the very first to know about this new release! I am so incredibly delighted to start off this new year with new music, and to share with you this never-before-heard song from the Asylum Musical, "We Have Instructions."
The song is now available worldwide for streaming/downloading, with several free options.
A handy guide to just a few of the biggies:
☞ Apple Music
☞ Amazon Music
This is a wild one, from near the beginning of Act 1, where Emilie is admitted to the modern-day hospital and stripped of all of her belongings (except for her striped you-know-whats).
The vocals are sung by all of 8 characters (4 Guards, 2 Nurses, the Head Nurse, and Emilie). Readers of the Asylum Book will be very familiar with this scene, and many who have been admitted to a psych ward themselves have likely experienced something quite similar. What many know and many do not is that nearly all of the roles in the musical are dual roles. Madam Mournington is obviously the Head Nurse, the Hospital Guards are also the Asylum Doctors and Chasers, and the Hospital Patients are also the Inmates. You surely know whom Dr. Sharp and Emilie are;).
You will of course recognize the melody from the song "We Want Them Young," which will appear in Act 2. I will let you guess which nasty character begins BOTH songs...
And now, I am going to do something I've never done before...I'm going to share with you a page from the ACTUAL SCRIPT (a.k.a. the Book or Libretto) for the Asylum Musical, the page on which "We Have Instructions" is introduced, and which tells the actors what to do. Have a peek:
