On the Record: John Bucchino

Get to know Williamson Music's John Bucchino on two fantastic recordings: A CATERED AFFAIR and IT'S ONLY LIFE.

John Bucchino’s original musical, A CATERED AFFAIR, is now available on CD. The musical, with music and lyrics by Bucchino and a book by Harvey Fierstein, takes place in the Bronx of the 1950s. The story follows the highs and lows of family life as a mother (played by Faith Prince), attempts to give her reluctant daughter the wedding she never had. A CATERED AFFAIR was hailed by the New York Post as "4 Stars! An Affair to Remember!" and won the Drama League Award for Best Musical.

Featured on this album are some of the greatest dramatic singers of our time, including performances by Brooks Ashmanskas, Andréa Burns, Gavin Creel, Jessica Molaskey, and Billy Porter. Bucchino's song "Grateful" from the album is also a Julie Andrews Collection children's book, available from Harper Collins.
