The Count of Monte Cristo musical, book and music by James Behr,[1] is adapted from the famous novel by Alexander Dumas.[2] The Count of Monte Cristo[1][3][4] was recently awarded as Finalist in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, 2011 (NYMF), and was performed in part in New York in 2010 at the New York Off-Broadway Wings Theater[5] during the 2010 West Village Musical Theatre Festival.[5][6][7] It received the festival award for Best Musical Score. The performances received publication and a positive review from online newspaper News Blaze.[8] Stylistically, the musical has a sound associated with traditional Broadway musicals given that it is orchestrated and recorded with a 30-piece orchestra (i.e., strings, woodwinds and brass).
