ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Two Svengalis spotlights rapier-sharp words and a score that ranges from torchy ballads to lilting swing – with a healthy dose of Broadway brass – dark subtext and dry humor, two fascinating characters, and a book that is most intriguing. Toni DiBuono provides the perfect balance of showbiz pizzazz and human frailty. Tuner's offbeat quality is sure to appeal to sophisticated theatre crowds." – VARIETY

"This witty and entertaining show tells the intentionally florid tale of two people who, driven by a need for revenge against their former lovers, rise to fame and fortune. Barton's songs have real craft behind them and DiBuono is a wonderful comedian. In short, this is a fine piece of work." – Barbara & Scott Siegel, THEATERMANIA

Welcome to "THE TWO SVENGALIS," a new musical entertainment with music, lyrics, and orchestrations by FRED BARTON ("MISS GULCH RETURNS!") and starring Fred and TONI DIBUONO ("FORBIDDEN BROADWAY"). Based on a true-life incident, with a nod to "Trilby," THE TWO SVENGALIS is pays homage to the backstage musical romances of Hollywood's Golden Age, with a score that harks back to the days when Styne, Comden & Green and their compatriots defined the Golden Age of Broadway.

What happens when a hack songwriter is faced with the daunting task of transforming an amateur singing housewife into the greatest singer/actress in the world? The inevitable: he succeeds....

And what happens when an amateur singing housewife is faced with the daunting task of transforming a hack songwriter into the toast of Broadway? The inevitable: she succeeds....and together they conquer the world -- and each other -- in fifteen songs....and only they know who they really are....THE TWO SVENGALIS!

TONI DIBUONO debuted in FORBIDDEN BROADWAY, winning both the Drama Desk and Outer Drama Critics' Circle Awards. On Broadway, she appeared in WONDERFUL TOWN and THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE. She has made numerous appearances off-Broadway and in regional theatres across the country. Toni was the star of PBS’s MATHNET, and co-host of OUR HOME on Lifetime; she has also appeared on LAW & ORDER and LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, as well as in numerous commercials.

Fred Barton debuted as the original arranger/performer/pianist in the Drama-Desk-Award-winning FORBIDDEN BROADWAY. Fred followed with his one-man tour de force MISS GULCH RETURNS!, winning the Back Stage Bistro Award for Musical Comedy Performance. MISS GULCH RETURNS! generated a popular CD, and Miss Gulch’s song “Pour Me A Man” is being sung on three continents. Fred has conducted numerous Broadway shows, and has composed for TV (THE MAGIC SCHOOLBUS, Michael Moore's THE AWFUL TRUTH). Fred's orchestrations are played by symphony orchestras around the country, and Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops debuted two of Fred's orchestral compositions to a standing ovation in Boston's Symphony Hall. Fred has orchestrated numerous albums. Fred has played numerous roles around the country, including The Wicked Witch (one of the few roles he has in common with Toni DiBuono). Fred has made numerous TV appearances, including The Tonight Show and The Today Show.
