07 Mar 2013
The original cast recording of The Last Smoker in America, which played a brief run at Off-Broadway's The Westside Theatre in summer 2012, will be released later this spring.
It was also announced that the musical is now available for licensing through Samuel French Inc.
Director-producer Andy Sandberg said in a statement, "I am incredibly proud of this production and all of the extraordinarily talented artists who gave their time and talent to this show.…With licensing now available through Samuel French and the forthcoming release of the cast album, we remain excited for the future life of The Last Smoker in America as we continue on with our journey."
Producers included Sandberg, Whitney Hoagland Edwards, Michael Palitz and Stephanie Rosenberg.
The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "In a world where smoking has recently been outlawed and the penalties are growing stricter by the minute, Pam is having an impossible time trying to quit. Her husband Ernie dreams of being a rock star and relentlessly practices his guitar in the basement, while their videogame-addicted son Jimmy listens to so much rap music he thinks he's black. As if Pam isn't pushed to the edge of reason already, her nosy, anti-smoking zealot neighbor Phyllis is on a mission to catch transgressors mid-puff. Will Pam kick the habit or fight for her right to light up?"
