  • McCool - Original Cast Recording
Liner Notes: Paul Boyd’s musical "McCool" was first produced in 2002 by Northern Ireland's oldest independent theatre producer Big Telly Theatre Company in association with the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. The musical, based on the story of Irish mythological wild-child Finn McCool, toured Ireland extensively and developed a cult following across the country. In 2006 "McCool" was selected by Mercury Musical Developments in London as a UK entry to the NAMT’s Festival of New Musicals in New York. This recording of the full show was made in 2002 and is performed by the original cast, including West End star Rachel Tucker (BBC TV's "I'd Do Anything", "We Will Rock You", "Wicked"). "McCool" is an exciting multi-media rock concert performed by a multi-roleplaying cast of five, which charts the life of Finn McCool from his lowly beginning as an abandoned baby to his eventual position as Ireland's first superstar. The show features an eclectic, non-stop mix of dance and pop music, culminating in a spectacular megamix finale. "This belter of a musical is a high tech hit ... high energy, high octane ... a really McCool show ... a giant step" (Belfast Telegraph) "Be blown away by Finn McCool ... Boyd has evidently sussed out the structure of West End musical hits" (Belfast News Letter) "A magical piece of rock theatre ... this show is worth catching" (Irish News) For more information on "McCool" and other musicals by Paul Boyd, visit the pbm web site at www.pbmusicals.com "McCool" original book, music, and lyrics by Paul Boyd © pbm 2002 This recording © pbm 2002 "McCool" 2002 Irish Tour/World Premiere production . illusions designed by Paul McEneaney . illusions built by Paul Gomac . costumes designed by Eilish Hogg . lights designed by Mike Borgia . film directed by Mark Hill . sound designed by Patrick Dalgety . sound operated by Mick Draine . technical manager Guy Barriscale . stage managed by Tracy Haddock . choreographed by Sarah Johnston . musical director - Paul Boyd . directed by Zoe Seaton . performed by Brenda Brooks .
