Recorded in Manhattan on Feb. 23, Road Show premiered Off-Broadway at the Public Theater last fall. The new single-disc, 17-track cast recording, which features the entire original Off-Broadway cast, is aiming for an in-store arrival in late June or early July, according to Nonesuch representatives.
The complete track listing for Road Show follows:
"It's In Your Hands Now"
"That Was a Year"
"Isn't He Something!"
"The Best Thing That Ever Has Happened"
"The Game (Reprise)"
"Finale" As previously reported, the recording of Road Show will also boast augmented orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick.
Tony-winning Sweeney Todd director John Doyle helmed the recent Public Theater world premiere of Road Show. The cast featured Tony winner Michael Cerveris and Alexander Gemignani as the eccentric Wilson and Addison Mizner, respectively, with Alma Cuervo as Mama, William Parry as Papa, Claybourne Elder as Hollis and ensemble members Aisha de Haas, Colleen Fitzpatrick, Mylinda Hull, Mel Johnson, Jr., Orville Mendoza, Anne L. Nathan, Tom Nelis, Matt Stocke, William Youmans and Kristine Zbornik. Featuring a book by John Weidman and a score by Sondheim, Road Show spans 40 years of American history, from the Gold Rush to the Florida real-estate boom in the 1930's. Press notes for the work read: "Road Show is the story of two brothers whose quest for the American dream turns into a test of morality and judgment that changes their lives in unexpected ways."
PS Classics and Nonesuch Records previously united to record the Grammy-nominated cast album of the 2006 Broadway revival of Company. PS Classics co-founder Tommy Krasker also co-produced the Nonesuch Records world-premiere recording of Road Show's earlier incarnation, Bounce, which played out-of-town engagements in Chicago and Washington, DC in 2004.
