Freaky Friday is one of my most beloved ‘real-life’ movie by Disney. To know that a stage musical version will be produced, I am beyond excited! The story talks about a body swapping experience between a mother and daughter and how they learn to appreciate one another through the act of selfless love. The movie, starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, was extremely popular and I would recommend everyone to watch it if you haven’t already watched it.
Disney has recently released a studio cast recording of the show which you can purchase on iTunes here or listen to it on Spotify here. The music from the musical is composed by Tom Kitt, who also famously wrote Bring It On, Next To Normal and If/then, and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey. The music is super contemporary and catchy, and I’m playing it on repeat at the moment, and I wouldn’t be surprised if a few fo these numbers in the album became the new favourite audition song in the next few years.
To give you a taster, you can take a listen to a few numbers below.
