Take Me Along

Betty Johnson

These popular standards of Big Band style music from the 1950's have been digitally remastered from the original Bell Records Recordings maintained in Betty Johnson's private archives. It seems that good things just never grow old, they just age gracefully and mellow with the years.

After graduating the Dartmouth/UNH package with a degree in Drama, and a six-month run in Boston in Shear Madness, I moved to New York and founded the Michael Chekhov School of Drama just west of Carnegie Hall.

Quickly staffed with a number of available and willing professional actors and directors, drama graduates from Dartmouth as well as other colleges and Universities soon flocked to enroll.

After a hectic two years of managing the school I decided the time had come to start taking auditions myself. In a surprisingly short time I was chosen to play the part of Essie, the mother in Eugene O'Neil's classic play Ah, Wilderness, which became the musical Take Me Along.

We had a glorious seven months run on the road. When we played the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., President and Mrs. Bush as well as many other dignitaries not only came, but loved our show. It was a very happy time for me, playing with a group of very talented actors who actually bonded as a family during the run. Then, on to the Martin Beck Theater on Broadway.

This CD is dedicated to all those talented people in that cast, with a big thank you for being part of my dream... a Broadway show at last.

My thanks always to my family; Dick, Lydia, Elisabeth, and my husband Arthur.

-Betty Johnson
