News Cast Recording of Off-Broadway's Adrift in Macao Due in Stores in May The original cast recording of Adrift in Macao, the Off-Broadway musical that played a limited run at 59E59 Theaters in 2007, will be released in May.

The single CD is scheduled to arrive in stores May 13 on the LML Music label. Adrift in Macao features music by Peter Melnick and book and lyrics by Christopher Durang. The original Off-Broadway cast, which will be heard on the recording, included Alan Campbell, Will Swenson, Rachel deBenedet, Orville Mendoza, Michele Ragusa, Jonathan Rayson and Elisa Van Duyne.

The cast recording is produced by composer Melnick and Grammy and Oscar winner Joel Moss.

Adrift in Macao, according to press notes, is a "madcap musical parody of glamorous films noirs [and] features the leading lady who can't really sing yet somehow always manages to book a gig, and the mysterious leading man who can't go home for murky reasons he won't explain. From the opium dens of China to seedy bars in New York, this hilarious romp from Durang and composer Melnick takes audiences through the post-WWII years with plenty of intrigue and wit, and a playfully melodic score."

The complete track listing for Adrift in Macao follows:
"In a Foreign City"
"Grumpy Mood"
"Tempura's Song"
"Mister McGuffin"
"Pretty Moon Over Macao"
"Mambo Malaysian"
"Adrift in Macao"
