The cast recording of the recent Off-Broadway musical Frankenstein — co-starring Hunter Foster, Steve Blanchard and Christiane Noll — will be released on the Friends of Ghostlight label in September.

The single CD will be available on the Sh-K-Boom website and at all digital outlets Sept. 2 and will be available on Amazon.com beginning Sept. 30.

The recording features the entire original Off-Broadway cast, including Foster as Victor Frankenstein, Noll as Elizabeth, Blanchard as The Creature, Jim Stanek as Henry and Mandy Bruno as Justine with Becky Barta, Nick Cartell, Casey Erin Clark, Struan Erlenborn, Eric Michael Gillett, Leslie Henstock, Patrick Mellen and Aaron Serotsky.

Frankenstein features music by Mark Baron, book and lyrics by Jeffrey Jackson, original story adaptation by Gary P. Cohen and direction by Bill Fennelly. The musical, according to press notes, "is the story of the rebel scientist who challenges the laws of nature and morality when he breathes life into his inanimate creature.
