Post Assassins "Gun Song"
For those who have the score or have done the show: Which of the two recordings of "Gun Song" appropriately reflects the licensed score?

The Broadway Cast (2004) has the entire song up one semitone from the Off-Broadway version and has different vocal arrangements for the barbershop segments.

Which is correct? I've been trying to parse out the harmonies.

To that end, does anyone have a pdf of the vocal book and is willing to share? I always enjoy knowing the exact range for parts as written.

The vocal score shows harmonies identical to those of the Off-Broadway Cast Recording. This goes for every song in the show.

sorry i beg to differ, i am playing SJM at the moment and her part on the recording is not the same as the score, on either recording also the opening song on both recording is in a diffrent key to the actual score
