Fame, the original 1980 film musical starring Debbie Allen, Gene Anthony Ray and Lee Curreri, portrayed the individual trials and tribulations of highly-gifted students who attended a performing arts high school in New York City. The film also spawned a long-running TV show (1982) and a stage musical. Lakeshore Records released a series of Fame soundtracks to the 2009 film remake (watch it on iTunes), which features a score album by Academy Award-nominated Composer Mark Isham (A River Runs Through It, Warrior), songs performed by Naturi Naughton (Lifetime’s The Client List) and a whole new generation of exceptionally talented performers.
Debbie Allen is the only cast member to appear in the original, TV and 2009 productions of Fame. The internal struggle to “make it” and fight through self doubt is as relevant now as it was back in 1980, and you’ll hear it in the music on Lakeshore Records‘ Fame albums.
