Grammy nominee. It's Philadelphia Chickens— the catchy and quirky, tuneful and toe-tapping, exuberant, unexpected, and totally endearing family-musical-in-a-book. And, with 960,000 copies in print, a Recording Industry Association of America Platinum album. What a show! What an occasion! #1 New York Times bestseller.
Here is a full-color songbook of 17 1/2 illustrated story-poems, plus a full-length, fully orchestrated CD of original songs performed by such luminaries as Patti Lu Pone, Kevin Kline, Meryl Streep, The Bacon Brothers, and Laura Linney, who pleads"Please, Can I Keep It?"— it followed me home. / What exactly it is/ I don't know. With the collaboration of composer Michael Ford (recognized to Boynton fans from Rhinoceros Tap) , Philadelphia Chickens is that rarest of kids' musical discs— one whose inimitable lyrics and music make it as irresistible to parents as it is to their youngsters. Also joining in are Eric Stoltz, Scott Bakula, and two Boyntons, including daughter Caitlin Mc Ewan, who performs a piece that each small listener will relate to— a love song towards the chocolate chip cookies that are just out of reach.
