I recently had the opportunity to participate in a demo recording for Satan in High Heels, a new musical based on the old movie by the same name. Written by Robbie Robertson, and with music and lyrics by Kevin Carter, this is a hilarious story of lust and its consequences. Others involved in the demo include Chris Cockrell (vocals and keys), Vicky Saye Henderson, and Caroline Jones Weidner. From the official site:
“An early 60s sexploitation movie bounces back to life….in the musical adaptation of SATAN IN HIGH HEELS written by Robbie Robertson, with music and lyrics by Kevin Carter. SATAN tells the tawdry tale of Stacy Kane, a cunning and ambitious carnival striptease dancer who sleeps her way to the top in her sociopathic quest to become a Manhattan lounge singer. As she prepares for her NYC debut, Stacy engages in a series of torrid affairs with everyone from lesbian nightclub manager, Pepe, to the club’s owner, womanzing Arnold Kenyon—and even Arnold’s naïve college student son, Larry. Add in a drug addict ex, sex games and a shocking murder and you’ve got a sizzling stew of sleazy satisfaction.”
Having had a reading in New York City last week, we’re hopeful that the musical will take off! Check out the demo below, and listen to my songs at 2:43 and 3:28, and check out that choir diction on “tits in a tent”! Also LIKE the Facebook page, here.
