Speech! returns to MN Fringe TONIGHT - more show music

As previously mentioned, Speech! returns to the Rarig Thrust stage tonight at 5:30 after four days of blissful slumber. I hope you'll be there. Since last we talked, the CityPages gave us a very nice writeup. Spoiler alert, as usual.

Speaking of spoilers, I wanted to write up the music used in the show as a companion to the playlist I posted the other day. What follows will be self-indulgent, procedural, and full of spoilers, so don't read it until after you've seen the show. Seriously, go see our show before you read this. Go.


  1. Opening monologues: The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter
  2. Mary meets Angela: Ennio Morricone - Theme from Navajo Joe (starting :17 into this clip)
  3. Kate & Doug train: Des'ree - You Gotta Be (see also)
  4. The Booze Demon: Bernard Hermann - Vertigo Suite: The Nightmare (we used Esa-Pekka Salonen conducting the LA Philharmonic, not on Youtube. Here you can see the version from original movie)
  5. Kate & Doug share a moment: Seal - Kiss From A Rose
  6. Kate & Doug's final performance: Patrick Williams - Finale from The Cutting Edge*
  7. Ending monologue and curtain call: Smashing Pumpkins - Today
* I would like to note, as a student of physics, that not only would the "Pamchenko" move be dangerous and difficult, but it's also physically impossible -- there's no way to get from the point A to point B they show in the movie. Incidentally, did you know there are not one, but two basic cable TV movie sequels to The Cutting Edge?
