Scheduled to hit stores Feb. 27, the original cast recording includes the vocal talents of Kevin Spirtas, Alet Taylor, Lauren Rubin, Cason Murphy, Merrill Grant, Benjamin Clark and Egbert Bernard. The musical boasts a score by Bruce Kimmel and a book by Kimmel and David Wechter.
The recording will feature 23 tracks with musical direction by Richard Berent and orchestrations by Larry Moore.
In a previous statement, composer-director Kimmel said, "The Brain From Planet X is a sci-fi musical, one that has sport with all my favorite bad sci-fi films of the 50s, which include 'Invaders From Mars,' 'The Brain From Planet Arous,' 'Plan Nine From Outer Space,' and 'The Creeping Terror' (which features the first monster entirely made out of carpet), and so many other fine works of cinema. I grew up loving those movies, and I love them still, and now through the magic of musical comedy, I’m getting to relive them all. We have an actual singing Brain, we have two aliens named Zubrick and Yoni (Yoni being the man-hungry female, and Zubrick being the man-hungry male), we have an All-American Family, we have a General, we have an elderly Professor, we have 17 musical numbers and, best of all, the show is set in the San Fernando Valley in 1958."
