Kitty's Kisses
World Premiere Recording
The Bright New Summer Musical Delight

PS Classics continues its forgotten musicals series, which kicked off with Vincent Youmans’ Through the Years and Kay Swift’s Fine and Dandy, with the world premiere recording of the 1926 “bright new summer musical delight” KITTY’S KISSES.

This tuneful charmer beguiled Broadway audiences in its day, spawning several hit songs, but like so many musicals of its era, it’s faded unfairly into obscurity. The music is by Con Conrad, who took home the first Academy Award for Best Song (“The Continental” in 1934); the lyrics are by Gus Kahn, whose standards include “It Had to Be You,” “I'll See You in My Dreams,” and “Makin' Whoopee.” The book was co-authored by celebrated librettist Otto Harbach (Roberta, Desert Song, and No, No, Nanette!).

Now PS Classics has assembled Broadway’s best musicians and an all-star cast – including Rebecca Luker (Mary Poppins), Danny Burstein (South Pacific), Andréa Burns (In the Heights), Christopher Fitzgerald (Young Frankenstein), Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza) and Kate Baldwin (Finian’s Rainbow) – to bring this Jazz Age hit vividly to life.
