News   With Glee Concert Celebrates New Musical's Original Cast Recording
Prospect Theater Company celebrates the release of the original cast recording of its 2010 Off-Broadway production of John Gregor's With Glee with a concert of the musical Oct. 17 at 7:30 PM at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

Directed by Igor Goldin with music direction by Daniel Feyer, the evening reunites original members of the Prospect 2010 cast (who are also featured on the recording), including Zach Bandler, Christopher Davis Carlisle, Greg Horton, Erin Jerozal, Dan Lawler and Max Spitulnik as well as Kevin Michael Murphy.

The original Off-Broadway cast recording was independently produced by Brimmer Street Productions and will be available for online purchase through "Friends of Sh-K-Boom" (http://www.sh-k-boom.com/boutique-friends.shtml) and CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com) following the concert. Autographed CDs will also be available for cash sale at the concert for $18.

With Glee features book, music and lyrics by Gregor. The show was originally developed through a 2007 production at the NYU Skirball Center and was also presented in the 2007 New York Musical Theatre Festival. Prospect’s production opened Off-Broadway in the Kirk Theatre at Theatre Row on July 13, 2010, and extended through Aug. 29, 2010.

The musical, according to press notes, is "a new, old-fashioned musical comedy about five wayward, eccentric, isolated, awkward, sweet, naive, nerdy teenage boys who are sent away to a boarding school in Maine. As they revel in the trials of their freshman year—striving for acceptance, friendship, and normalcy—we are reminded that every life must be lived to its fullest, every song sung with glee."

Tickets for this event are $25 for regular admission, and $50 for premium seating locations, and may be purchased in advance through www.ProspectTheater.org or by calling (212) 352-3101. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Lucille Lortel Theatre box office at 121 Christopher Street.
