Jimmie Rodger recorded a total of 110 sides during his brief, six-year career, and he wrote, co-wrote or arranged all but twelve of those sides. Nearly every song included in this musical production was either one of those 110 songs, or in the case of the finale, was especially written in tribute to this very first superstar of country music.
The 24 songs featured below, as performed by some of the most notable artists ever to be influenced by Jimmie Rodgers, should give you an excellent view of the diverse music to be found in this presentation.
And of course, it’s a theatre group’s individual interpretation of these songs that makes each production of “Waiting For A Train” so very, very unique.
So please, we invite you to sit back and enjoy the music, enjoy the taste of the stage, and enjoy the diversity of the brand-new stage musical, “Waiting For A Train”.
Then, we ask that you take a moment to tell your own community theatre group, you’d like to see this exciting production on a live stage near you.
NOTE: If necessary, be sure to stop one player before staring another.
