This is a look at the making of "DREAMLAND" - a cd featuring Brent Spiner & Maude Maggart. The CD harkens back to radio's golden age, with a love story that is told through classic songs, characters, dialog and sound FX. Part musical, part radio drama and part film noir, the concept for this "audio film" sprang from Spiner's becoming a partner in a recording studio (the one featured in the video). Miss Maggart is well known in the cabaret world and brings a wonderful haunting quality to the dreamlike narrative. All in all, it's a uniquely romantic escape that stands apart from ordinary cd's and must be heard in it's entirety to be fully appreciated.

Here's what people are saying.....
"INGENIOUS" - The Wall Street Journal
"If they give out Charm Awards somewhere, Dreamland would be a sure winner...In the wrong hands, this endeavor could have been treacly or self-consciously labored. But, with humor and what feels like a natural and willing fit for old radio-style drama and non-condescending fondness for songs where romance is the be-all and end-all, it all works". - Talkinbroadway.com
"The most romantic cd you'll ever hear" -Your Wedding Day magazine
"A wonderful throwback to the radio days of old and a thoroughly enjoyable 50 minutes of entertainment...One thing that I couldn't help but yearn for, is a full cinematic version of this album. That's what I thought at first, but when I thought again, I realised that like a good book, I've built the whole story up in my imagination and that is where it should probably stay." - Indielaunchpad.com
"Dreamland is a wonderful, thought-provoking adventure that invokes nostalgia for classic romance. There were moments when I was incited to laughter, enthralled with suspense and nearly moved to tears. The performances are first-rate." -listener review
"A huge breath of fresh air. Once you start listening, you get swept away into the story and almost feel like you're watching it unfold right before you." -listener review
"Each 'retelling' enriches the movie I have playing in my head. Eventually, I'm sure I'll be able to listen to something else.. but for now, I'm going to enjoy the rich tapestry of imagination that is Dreamland." -listener review
