I recorded Max Lambert and Nick Enright’s classic musical “Miracle City” live over the final week of the show’s season at the Hayes Theatre in Darlinghurst, Sydney. The show features a cast of the award winning Blazey Best, Mike McLeish, Esther Hannaford, Hilary Cole, Marika Aubrey, Josie Lane, Cameron Holmes, Jason Kos and Peter Kowitz. It was such a pleasure being able to spend time with Max and Nick’s sublime music and lyrics as I compiled and mixed the album.
The album made it to number 8 on the soundtracks charts, and Top 40 of all music on release – a remarkable achievement for an Australian Musical Album.
Max said, “Although it’s taken nearly 20 years to get Miracle City to this stage, it’s heartening that there is now enough support for Australian musicals to have an audience for its recordings as well. Cast recordings are an essential legacy for any musical – it’s where you find their lasting audience.”
