Ghostlight Records releases the concert recording of When Everything Was Possible, an exciting and poignant evening celebrating Broadway’s Golden Age starring Kurt Peterson and Victoria Mallory. The beloved performers – who appeared in the original productions of the classic musicals Follies, A Little Night Music, Dear World and Sondheim: A Musical Tribute, among many others – reunited at New York City Center in 2012 and this live album memorializes that special evening, Victoria’s last New York stage appearance. When Everything Was Possible includes songs from shows they appeared in either separately or together between 1966 and 1974, in addition to two new compositions.

When Everything Was Possible features selections from landmark works of musical theater, along with hilarious and personal memories from the stars themselves, to offer a walk down Broadway’s memory lane. The concert has new orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, music direction by Michael Rafter, direction by Larry Moss, musical staging by Joshua Bergasse, historical projections by TelegraphicMedia, original songs by Kurt and composer Jesse Wiener, and an introduction by Ted Chapin, President of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. The album is produced by James William Productions and Stephenie Skyllas.
The accompanying 32-page booklet contains many never-before-seen historic photographs, as well as images from the 2012 concert, a memorial to Victoria, and a note from Victoria’s husband, Mark. The archival recording beautifully captures the hopeful, emotional, and exuberant evening that Backstage said, “No young performer should miss. Not only will you learn a lot; it will give you hope.”
After seeing When Everything Was Possible, Broadway legend director Hal Prince – who directed many of the iconic original productions – called the show “magical” and remarked, “they represent the best of musical theatre. Beautiful voices, charm, shining intelligence, and additionally they’re terrific looking. The show they’ve so adroitly put together is thoroughly entertaining, informative, poignant, was performed with grace and generosity and is a real treat.” Tony Award winning Broadway star Kelli O’Hara raved “I was so moved and inspired. I felt like I was seeing something so rare and special. Everyone did.”
