The cast of the 26-track recording features Christine Pedi, who will return to the Off-Broadway production April 24, as well as Christina Bianco, Michael West, John Walton West, Amy Griffin and Tommy Walker.

The album features Pedi’s impressions of everyone from Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers and Barbra Streisand to Julie Andrews, Elaine Stritch and Angela Lansbury. As a bonus, the album includes three songs from the 2009 edition of Newsical performed by The Book of Mormon’s Rory O’Malley: “The Underwear Bomber," “Balloon Boy” and “Restless Leg Syndrome."

The album, priced $9.99, is produced by Tom D’Angora and engineered, mixed and mastered by Carl Casella and Bob Hanlon of Sound Associates.
