BNL write/record music for Shakespeare play

BNL were asked to write the music for the 2005 Stratford production of Shakespeare's As You Like It.
They are currently in Steve's studio, recording these songs.

The play opens June 4, 2005 at the Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario.
The actors will sing the songs during performances (live) while the music (pre-recorded) is by BNL.

But as Ed promises in his March 1st BLOG entry, quote:
"There will however be full BNL versions… somewhere, somehow… SOME DAY!!!!!!"
