Overview

Masterworks Broadway is proud to release the Encores! Cast Recording of the classic musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Starring as Lorelei Lee is Sony recording artist and star of NBC’s hit series Smash, Megan Hilty. The cast also includes Rachel York as Dorothy, Clark Thorell as Gus, Aaron Lazar as Henry along with Simon Jones, Stephen R. Buntrock, PhillipAttmore and Jared Grimes. Blondes features a bouncy score composed by the legendary Jule Styne (Gypsy, Funny Girl) and includes the hits “A Little Girl from Little Rock,” Bye Bye Baby,” and of course, the classic made famous by Marilyn Monroe, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Based on Anita Loos’ bestselling novel of the same name, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes made a Broadway star of Carol Channing and later cemented Monroe’s status as an American film icon and sex symbol in the 1953 screen version. The recent critically acclaimed Encores! production ran from May 9 to May 13 at New York’s City Center. Megan Hilty is in the process of recording her first solo album for Sony Masterworks which will be released early next year.
