Betty Blue Eyes Cast Album to Be Released by First Night Records

The original cast album for Betty Blue Eyes, currently playing at the West End's Novello Theatre, will be released by First Night Records in both physical and digital versions. An on-sale date will be announced in the near future.

The physical edition of the recording will have 20 tracks. The version released digitally will include two bonus tracks: "Since the War" and the complete version of the song "Magic Fingers."

The show is based on Alan Bennett's film A Private Function and features a book by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, with music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

The production is set in a Yorkshire village after the Second World War, where the locals hope to celebrate the wedding of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in style by slaughtering an illegally raised pig. Chaos ensues when the pig is stolen and a food inspector arrives, determined to stop activities circumventing the food rationing.

The show stars Sarah Lancashire (Joyce), Reece Shearsmith (Gilbert), David Bamber (Swaby), Jack Edwards (Allardyce), Mark Meadows (Lockwood), Adrian Scarborough (Wormold), and Ann Emery (Mother Dear).
