Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The late Marian Seldes was among America's great theatrical luminaries, dubbed "the American theatrical diva for our time" by critic Clive Barnes in 2002. Her mellifluous voice and crystalline diction, once heard, were never forgotten. Away in a Hollow, written by former acting student Donald Corren, makes full use of Ms. Seldes' captivating vocal style to tell the story of an anxious caterpillar trying too hard to become a butterfly. Her hypnotic performance transports her audience to an oasis of "meditative playfulness," allowing children and their parents to enjoy a welcome respite from a frenetic world, while learning a thing or two about patience, expectations, and what it means to grow up! Accompanied by a lush musical score and colorful water color illustrations, Away In A Hollow will captivate children of all ages and their parents.
