News   Ghostlight Sets July 25 Release for [title of show] Musical Cast Album with Cut Song The original cast album of Off-Broadway's popular musical comedy [title of show] — which returns to the Vineyard Theatre July 14 for a commercial run — will be released on July 25.

Ghostlight Records — a division of Sh-K-Boom Records — recorded the album in early May. Joel Moss and Kurt Deustch produce the CD which features Hunter Bell, Susan Blackwell, Heidi Blickenstaff, and Jeff Bowen, with musical direction and arrangements by Larry Pressgrove.

Some bits of dialogue appear in song introductions and within songs. A song titled "[title of show]" — not featured in the production — will be included on the disc.

2. Two Nobodies in New York

6. Part of It All

14. Nine People's Favorite Thing
15. Finale
16. [title of show] - bonus track

Kevin McCollum, Laura Camien and the Vineyard Theatre will present the return 8-week limited engagement of the work which reclaims the downtown stage following Mary Pat Gleason's Stopping Traffic that ends July 2. Previews for the previous Vineyard run of [title of show] began Feb. 15 prior to a Feb. 26 open for a run originally scheduled through March 26. The musical extended its engagement to April 9 following "strong audience and critical support, and record ticket sales following its Feb. 26 opening" and then again to April 23.

Previously seen at the 2004 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF), the new run of the Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell creation reunites the original cast and creative team. [title of show] — which follows two young writers (who happen to be named Jeff and Hunter) as they "race to write and submit a show to the theatre festival" weeks before the deadline — was born out of just that: Bowen and Bell's race to complete an entry for the aforementioned festival.

The musical — which features added material (continuing the musical's own journey following its NYMF run) — also includes two of the scribe's friends who were enlisted for the ride. Bowen (The Who's Tommy) and Bell (Oh, Boy!) star with Susan Blackwell (The Heidi Chronicles) and Heidi Blickenstaff (The Full Monty).

Tony Award nominee Michael Berresse (The Light in the Piazza, Kiss Me Kate) leads the original creative team as the director-choreographer with Larry Pressgrove (Cats, Children's Letters To God) who provides musical arrangements and direction.

They are joined by the design team which features Neil Patel (set), Chase Tyler (costume), Ken Billington and Jason Kantrowitz (lighting) and ACME Sound Partners (sound).

Tickets for the new run of [title of show] at the Vineyard Theatre, 108 East 15 St. are on sale through (212) 279-4200. For more information, visit www.vineyardtheatre.org or www.titleofshow.com.
