A special EP recording of songs from the new musical The Bestest Office Christmas Party Ever will release for digital purchase and streaming November 18, with performances from three-time Tony nominee Mary Testa, Paige Turner, Deb Radloff, Jamen Nanthakumar, Bryan Munar, DeAnne Stewart, and Ryan McCurdy.
Get a first listen to Testa's performance of the score's "Sex Machine Robot" above.
The musical features a book and lyrics by Drew Larimore (Smithtown) and music and lyrics by Billy Recce (A Musical About Star Wars), bringing a new twist to conventional Christmas shows with a holiday office party at a struggling adult diaper company that goes haywire.
Say Larimore and Recce of Testa's performance, "Just when you think this runaway office party holiday train can’t get any crazier comes the 11-o’clock number 'Sex Machine Robot,' where the boss’ wife, Mary Pat Kugelman, details a harrowing tale of a robot encounter gone awry. Who else would be more ideal for this hilarious show-stopping song than Mary Testa? Her eccentrically frantic portrayal of a capricious and wealthy woman on the run from literal machinery—in lieu of an extramarital lover like her husband originally believed—skyrockets this musical into yuletide zaniness."
The musical premiered in an online developmental presentation with New York Theatre Barn in 2020.
