Taking My Turn

150 Music proudly presents the re-issue of the original cast album of TAKING MY TURN, the award-winning, critically acclaimed musical with lyrics by Will Holt and music by Gary William Friedman. TAKING MY TURN was one of the first musicals to deal with aging. Director/Adaptor Robert H. Livingston collected the actual writings of people "in their prime", which became the basis for the non-linear book. The stellar cast included Margaret Whiting, Cissy Houston, Marni Nixon and Tiger Haynes. TAKING MY TURN opened Off-Broadway at the Entermedia Theatre in 1983, and won the 1984 Outer Critic's Circle Award for Best Lyrics/Music and a Drama Desk nomination for Best Musical. TAKING MY TURN was also presented on the PBS Great Performance Series.
