Dear Listener,

Thanks for wanting to hear our musical The Landing. A few words about how it came about, in case you’re interested. We both got excited about the idea of writing a one-act musical that’s so small it could be performed in your living room...just four actors and four musicians. We’re great fans of short stories so we liked the idea of there being a narrator. We hit on this idea of a boy who becomes fascinated with the constellation myths as well as the carpenter who knows all about them. So that became the first one-act, Andra. We both love opera and operetta so we decided to mess around with the musical form a little so it differs from the scene-song-scene approach of the tradition musical...you’ll see. We owe thanks to the great writer and friend William Goldman who first suggested we turn Andra into a full-length evening of theater. We decided to write two more one-acts which could be performed by the same four actors and instruments. We wrote the one-act The Landing next, and then the more comic (hopefully) one-act The Brick to go in the middle. We workshopped these one-at-a-time at our beloved artistic home The Vineyard Theatre in NYC, always with our intrepid music director David Loud and a bunch of wildly gifted actors, some of whom you’re about to hear. The show premiered at the Vineyard Theatre in 2013 helmed by the inventive director Walter Bobbie and we watched our “living room musical” come to life.

We loved making The Landing. We hope you enjoy listening to it. Warmly,

John Kander and Greg Pierce
