Description

Chichester Festival Theatre cast recording of the hugely acclaimed musical Flowers For Mrs Harris, with a book by Rachel Wagstaff, music and lyrics by Richard Taylor, based on the novel by Paul Gallico.

Flowers For Mrs Harris is the story of Ada Harris, a char-lady in post-war London whose drab life of dusting and scrubbing is transformed when she glimpses a Christian Dior dress in one of her client’s wardrobes and sets her heart on going to Paris to buy one for herself.

The 2018 Chichester Festival production was directed by Daniel Evans, with a cast led by Clare Burt (who won a UK Theatre Award for her performance), Joanna Ridintg and Gary Wilmot, alongside Claire Machin, Louis Maskell, Mark Meadows, Laura Pitt-Pulford, Nicola Sloane, Luke Latchman and Rhona McGregor.

In July 2020, during the global Covid pandemic, the entire cast and orchestra from the 2018 production safely reunited, on the Chichester Festival Theatre stage, to record the album. This highly anticipated two-disc cast recording, with orchestrations by Richard Taylor, conducted by Tom Brady and mixed by Mike Walker, comes complete with a full colour 16 page booklet, including production photographs and synopsis.

Fiona Stuart - 5 Stars

A wonderful musical

Flowers For Mrs Harris is such a beautiful British musical. It has all the ingredients- a wonderful score sung by a great cast and a storyline which gives the listener all the emotions.

Simon - West Sussex 5 Stars

A great recording of a lovely British show

I was lucky enough to see this show during the last week of its run in Chichester and nearly went back to see it again the following night. I did watch and enjoy it for a second time when a recording was streamed during the first lockdown. This is a lovely romantic show with a lovely romantic score, beautifully captured on this recording.
