A Note From Martin Short

Martin Short's Fame Becomes MeMartin Short Releases his Broadway Cast Album: Fame Becomes Me
Hello Broadway World,
New York, NY (rushprnews) April 11, 2007- This is Martin Short, and I am personally writing to let you know that today, I am releasing the Broadway cast album of Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me.
I love this album because it is about me and when the subject turns to me, my ears can’t help but perk up. The album has new classic tunes, soon to be standards sung by every pop diva known to mankind, written by the brilliant authors of the musical Hairspray, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.   And I think it’s safe to say that these two boys are geniuses.  Not particularly true, but safe.  You’ll hear songs like “Step Brother to Jesus,” “Big Titties,” and of course “A Big Black Lady Stops The Show.”

We had many titles for our big show: “Stroke Me, Lady Fame,” “Sunday in the Park with George Michael,” “Bring in Da Noise Bring in Da Funk, Oh Yeah, And a Scoop of Tuna,” and “Sonny Von Bulow Unplugged”, Glatt Kosher for Broadway” ­ and of course “If I’d Saved I Wouldn’t Be Here,” which is why I am writing to you today…because if I’d saved I wouldn’t be e-mailing you… personally.So, please help me feed my children, pay their tuition… buy the cast album to my Broadway show. The good news is it’s much cheaper than a ticket and you will laugh almost as hard.But enough about how wonderful I am and the album is, let’s hear what some other very intelligent people have to say about my show and album:Vanity Fair  – “HILARIOUS!  A satirical tour de force! Short is one of the great comic geniuses of our age.”USA  TODAY- “4 STARS! A  relentless, riotous sendup! – Ghostlight  Record’s sparkling new cast recording of Short and company in all their  ridiculous glory will make you laugh out loud at the outrageous absurdity of  it all! AP  – “HILARIOUS!  Short is an unstoppable comic spirit with an inexhaustible sense of fun. It’s  the audience that is worn out from  laughing.”
