The cast and creative team of the short-lived Broadway musical Glory Days will reunite Nov. 23 to celebrate the cast recording of the show in a special concert at Joe's Pub.

Creators Nick Blaemire (music/lyrics) and James Gardiner (book) will be joined by original Broadway cast members Steven Booth, Andrew C. Call, Adam Halpin and Jesse J.P. Johnson for the 11:30 PM reunion concert.

The evening also promises special guests from the casts of Hair, Xanadu, South Pacific, Avenue Q, Wicked, Rock of Ages and American Idiot, all of whom participated in various incarnations of Glory Days during its development.

Sh-K-Boom's Ghostlight Records label captured the original cast recording in July. A release date for the album has not been announced.

Glory Days transferred to Broadway's Circle in the Square in May 2008 after a run at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA. Critics didn't warm to the musical about four high school friends who reunite on a football field a year after graduating. After playing 17 previews, Glory Days shuttered following its opening-night performance.

The creators are currently at work revising the musical, which will be available for licensing shortly.
