New musical Lempicka has set a release date for its original Broadway cast recording. Matt Gould and Carson Kreitzer's biomusical following the life of the titular artist began performances at the Longacre Theatre March 19 ahead of an April 14 opening night at the Longacre Theatre.

Lempicka follows the true story of Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka, a young aristocrat-turned-artist who flees with her husband from the turmoil of the Russian Revolution for exile in Paris. Once there, Tamara meets her new muse, Rafaela, and claws her way to success. The book, lyrics, and original concept are by Kreitzer, with Gould co-writing the book and penning the music.

Three songs have already been released from the show's La Jolla Playhouse run: "Woman Is," "Perfection," and "Stay." Listen here.

Rachel Chavkin directs the new work, which stars Eden Espinosa as Tamara de Lempicka. Opposite Espinosa in the titular role, Amber Iman, Beth Leavel, and Andrew Samonsky star as Rafaela, The Baroness, and Tadeusz Lempicki, respectively. They are joined by George Abud as Marinetti, Natalie Joy Johnson as Suzy Solidor, Zoe Glick as Kizette, Nathaniel Stampley as the Baron, and Beth Leavel as the Baroness.
