Universal Stage Productions has announced that Ghostlight Records will record the cast album of the Roundabout Theatre Company production of Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical. The Broadway cast will head into the studio January 8 and 9, 2017.
Kurt Deutsch will serve as album producer, and Universal Stage Productions will executive produce. The two previously collaborated on the Tony-nominated Bring It On: The Musical, and Ghostlight Records previously recorded Roundabout’s productions of She Loves Me, The Robber Bridegroom, Anything Goes, and Everyday Rapture.
The release date for the Holiday Inn cast album will be announced at a later time.
The new musical features over 20 classic songs from the Berlin catalogue, including “Steppin’ Out With My Baby,” “Shaking the Blues Away,” “Easter Parade,” “Cheek to Cheek,” and “Heatwave.” It tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business for the peace and quiet of a Connecticut farmhouse.

It currently stars Bryce Pinkham, Danny Rutigliano, Megan Lawrence, Megan Sikora, Corbin Bleu, and Lora Lee Gayer.
