The two-disc set features the talents of Robert Cuccioli, Max von Essen, Christiane Noll and Rodney Hicks as well as Brooke Sunny Moriber, Ashley Amber, William Parry, Joseph Dellger, Tony Freeman, John Jeffrey Martin and Alton Fitzgerald White. Several of the tracks on the two-CD set boast the 59-piece Prague Symphony Orchestra.

The New Picasso features a book and score by Jonathan David Sloate. The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "Tormented by his mother's suicide, Jon Bernard is driven to become the greatest painter that the world has ever known. Incapable of embracing the unconditional love and adoration from his childhood sweetheart, Jennifer Robbins, or from his caring father and upbeat group of friends, Jon innocently entangles himself into the ever-scheming clutches of Vanguard City's most powerful art dealer, Jules de Medici, who remains deeply obsessed with the memory of Jon's mother. The dark passionate journey Jon embarks upon to discover the depths of true love brings him to the brink of disaster and ruin once Jules entices him with a stunning temptress, Alexandra Laurent. So befalls this epic tale of betrayal, obsession, resurrection, and the quest for love's ultimate redemption… The Soul."
