Philadelphia Chickens

Ocotber 14, 2002 | Rounder Kids | 48 minutes
| Written by: Sandra Boynton
Sandra Boynton puts a fresh cast of singing, dancing critters center stage-from the titular boogying chickens to a tail-wagging "snuggle puppy"-in Philadelphia Chickens, a book-and-CD package billed as an "imaginary musical revue." The first 32 pages contain lyrics and illustrations, the second half of the book includes musical notation and additional lyrics for each song. An all-star cast, including Meryl Streep, Laura Linney, Eric Stoltz and the Bacon Brothers, headlines the musical recording, which features a variety of original show tunes penned by Boynton and composed by Boynton and frequent collaborator Michael Ford.
Cast: Aaaardvarks, Beth Andrien, The Bacon Brothers, Scott Bakula, Darcy Boynton, Keith Boynton, Adam Bryant, Michael Ford, Laura Linney, Caitlin McEwan, Patti LuPone, Kevin Kline, Natasha Richardson, John Stey, Eric Stoltz, Meryl Streep, The Heath Sisters, The Seldom Herd
