Jerry Cruncher - Narrator

Jerry Cruncher. An English  working class commoner, who ran errands for Tellson's Bank by day and by night dug up bodies and sold them to doctors for scientific experiments. He travelled back and forth between the cities of London and Paris and was in the middle of everyone's lives, which is why he knew so much about all these people, these two cities and this great story of Love and Revolution.​

 THINK FAST 

(ERNEST DEFARGE)


IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST
NO ONE COULD FIND A WAY TOO MAKE THINGS WORK
PARIS IS PERISHING, HUNGRY AND HURT
THEY TAX US TO POVERTY, WILL WE EVER LEARN.

 

(CHORUS)
 

THINK FAST

MAKE IT LAST
WE'RE THE ONES THAT CHOOSE

THINK BACK

TO THE PAST

WE'RE THE ONES

THAT LOSE

A STORY OF GREAT LOVE

Two men fall in love with the same beautiful woman. One of them makes the ultimate sacrifice and gives up his life to save the life of the other, all in the name of love.

 

IN THE EYES OF LOVE

 

(LUCY MANETTE)

YOU AND I WILL NOT BE BROKEN
WE WERE BORN TWO OF A KIND
ABOVE THE CLOUDS THERE IS A RAINBOW
AND NOW OUR LOVE WILL CLEAR THE SKIES

(CHARLES DARNAY)

IN THE SHADOW OF A DREAM I SAW YOUR FACE
YOU WERE CLOSE TO ME BUT THEN YOU DRIFTED FAR AWAY
AND EVERYTHING AROUND ME DISAPPEARED INTO A SEA
AND AS I GASPED FOR AIR I WOKE AND YOU WERE NEXT TO ME

 

(CHARLES DARNAY & LUCY MANETTE)

IN THE EYES OF LOVE
I'VE NEVER LOVED YOU MORE
NO ONE ELSE CAN MAKE ME FEEL
THE WAY I FEEL WHEN YOU'RE WITH ME
IN THE EYES OF LOVE
I'VE NEVER BEEN SO SURE
YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE FOR ME
CAUSE NO ONE ELSE CAN MAKE ME FEEL
FEEL THIS WAY

(SYDNEY CARTON JOINS IN LAST CHORUS)

...

 
BONESLIGHTS_013.jpg

A STORY OF REVOLUTION

A young girl grows up intent of killing the man who killed her sister and burns down Paris in a blind lust for revenge that eventually takes her own life and the lives of everyone around her.

(DRUM SOLO UNDERSCORE)

 

STAND UP

 

(MADAME DEFARGE)


TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AROUND
THERE IS NO ROOM TO BREATH
WE TURN ANOTHER REVOLUTION
STEP OUTSIDE ARE YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
OR ARE YOU LOST IN THEIR ILLUSIONS

(CHORUS)


STAND UP
WE'VE GOT TO STAND UP TO IT
DON'T LET
CHANGE BRING US DOWN
STAND UP
WE'VE GOT TO STAND UP TO IT
DON'T LET THEM PUSH US AROUND...NO!

A Narrator, A Band of revolutionaries, Singers, Dancers, Movable set design, special screen effects and lighting, "Two Cites" will be a great live rock show for all ages. I did this video below during the pandemic as I needed to do some sort of visual demo after I finished the album, I had no resources other than the internet. So, I went into secondlife, a 3d website and built a full working theatre with sets & Lighting so I could shoot A video using 3D avatars to try and give everyone an idea of what this might look like as a live Show & A 3D show. 

Thanks so much for your support and taking your time to listen and look at my work! I hope you take a chance and buy my show but also pass it on as well to any you think might also be interested. All money raised through Donations & Sales will
go into the development of my 3D Web Theatre and a full 3D Performance of "TWO CITIES" online. Buying the Music & becoming a member also gives you a free ticket to this online show in the future.

Be safe, Be well, Christopher

To all who buy my Album! I so appreciate your support and hopefully if I sell enough of these, I will be able to fund the mounting of the full show on stage one day. A great band together with great players and singers and dancers and lights and all that goes into doing a live rock and roll show. Until then I hope you enjoy the story and my music and the talents of all those who went into helping me make this a reality. It has been a labor of love that has taken many years to complete and has gone through many incarnations but this is the one I always envisioned for my work. And one last thanks to David Krebs who believed in my music and my show and who supported it for so many years. It may not be what you thought it should be, but you helped keep it alive all these years and for that support I thank you.      

Other Thanks: Juliette Mann, Steven Tyler, Warren Kishner, Steve Leber, Johnathan Stuart, Felix Pappalardi, Richie Supa, Doug Kershaw, Joe Leonardi, Bobby Lamb, Anonymous Actor, Craig Alexander and all of the other people in my life who I have had the pleasure of working with. And thanks to all those who lent their talent to my creation. And to all those who inspired me. I thank all of you over and over again!
