Renowned composer and lyricist Alexander S. Bermange has garnered worldwide attention with his latest music album release “Wit & Whimsy.” The album showcases the unbridled talent, humor, and unparalleled creativity that has come to define his work in the theater industry. The 14-track collection features a star-studded lineup of West End and Broadway performers interpreting some “never-before-heard” songs by Bermange, which leaves no doubt that you’re going to be in for quite a show.
Bermange is no stranger to success in the world of theater, having made waves on both sides of the Atlantic with his compositions for musicals such as “The Route to Happiness,” “Thirteen Days,” and “Sleeping Arrangements.” His unique ability to capture depth and convey warmth, humor, or sorrow with his melodies has made his body of work a masterclass in songwriting.
In “Wit & Whimsy,” this extensive depth of experience and artistic talent shines brightly.

Some highlights of this fantastic album include “Estella (Scenes From a Life),” which looks at relationships with a keen eye and understanding; “I Hate Restaurants,” a tongue-in-cheek look at dining out (which might hit closer to reality for many); “What I’d Say If This Were A Musical” takes a playful dig at letting emotions spill out in song just like in a theater performance.
