ILENE GRAFF SINGS
What do you do when your television series is over and your baby flies the coop?
If you’re Ilene Graff, one of TV’s most popular moms (thanks to her six seasons on the ABC comedy MR. BELVEDERE), you go back to your first love and sing.
Ilene is proud to announce the release of her new CD, BABY’S BROADWAY LULLABIES, which is a collection of some of the most beautiful musical theatre songs that ever calmed a restless baby to sleep.
With the success of “Moulin Rouge,” “Chicago,” and her brother Todd Graff’s new musical film, “Camp,” Ilene felt the time was right for a theatre veteran (her credits include starring roles in the Broadway shows, “Promises, Promises,” “Grease,” and “I Love My Wife”), to bring great show tunes to the next generation of Broadway babies.
Although not all of the songs were originally conceived as lullabies, they are perfect for this gentle form. Included are “Toyland,” from “Babes in Toyland,” “Tomorrow,” from “Annie,” and “Music of the Night,” from “Phantom of the Opera.”
As an extra treat, BABY’S BROADWAY LULLABIES is available with a customized cover. When the child’s photo is mailed or emailed in, a one-of-a-kind cover is created featuring baby’s picture and name. The personalized over is a perfect reminder of the precious times spent cuddled with baby listening to these songs.
