The release is billed as the first Broadway cast album to appear in vinyl LP form in nearly 20 years.
In the Tony Award-winning show now at the Marquis Theatre, a theatre maven named Man in Chair (played by Bob Martin) holds up the record sleeve of his favorite 33-rpm LP cast album — 1928's The Drowsy Chaperone — and puts a needle on the platter and shares the experience with the audience. The show comes to life around him in his dreary studio apartment.
On Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, fans of the show can have the same experience while listening to their very own 33-rpm LP, which can be purchased at the Marquis Theatre or online at www.GhostlightRecords.com.
