Cast members of Michael John LaChiusa's Queen of the Mist will be in the studio on January 3, 2012 to record the cast album of the show for Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records.

The musical revisits the life of Anna Edson Taylor, who, in 1901, set out to be the first woman to shoot Niagara Falls, in a barrel of her own design. Jack Cummings III directed the production for The Transport Group.

The company features Mary Testa as Taylor, along with D.C. Anderson, Stanley Bahorek, Theresa McCarthy, Julia Murney, Andrew Samonsky, and Tally Sessions. The production also has orchestrations by Michael Starobin and musical direction is by Chris Fenwick who will conduct the original seven-piece orchestra for the recording.
