NPR has a first listen of the Act II duet “Move On” from the album; take a listen here.

The revival, helmed by Sarna Lapine (niece of the show's original director and book writer, James Lapine), played a limited engagement at the Hudson Theatre, marking the inaugural production of the newly renovated venue. Though the production was critically acclaimed and performed well at the box-office, it withdrew its consideration from awards.

In addition to Gyllenhaal and Ashford as George and Dot, respectively, the album features cast members Erin Davie as Yvonne, Penny Fuller as Old Lady, Ruthie Ann Miles as Frieda, Ashley Park and Jenni Barber as the Celestes, Phillip Boykin as Boatman, Claybourne Elder as Soldier, Robert Sean Leonard as Jules, Jennifer Sanchez as Nurse, and David Turner as Franz.
