Louis Edmonds in ERNEST IN LOVE, 1960

Ever wanted to hear Roger Collins sing? In 1960 you could have heard just that, thanks to an appearance by LOUIS EDMONDS in the off-Broadway play ERNEST IN LOVE. The two-act musical was an adaption of Oscar Wilde's  comedy of manners, "The Importance of Being Earnest."

The play was well-received, with The New York Times review noting Edmonds' "handsome stuffiness." The photos come courtesy of Masterworks Broadway, which has several more photos of the recording sessions for the ERNEST soundtrack.

The soundtrack is available from Amazon, but the track listing incorrectly attributes Edmonds songs to "Louis Edmonts."
