Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne announced that they had begun a three-week campaign to raise funds to produce a cast album for their musical The Boy Who Danced on Air, which played at Abingdon Theatre Company's June Havoc Theatre earlier this year. The album will feature the original off-Broadway cast and band, and will include the full score from the New York production as well as a few surprise bonuses to be announced in the coming month.

Rosser and Sohne's musical tells the story of Paiman and Feda, to young Afghani men who have spent their lives as dancers in the world of bacha bazi, where wealthy men take in boys from poor families, train them to dance at parties, and often abuse them. The two boys' chance meeting changes the course of their lives and sets them on a journey to find their independence in this musical fable about love, tradition, morality, and the strength of the human spirit.

The cast during the off-Broadway run featured Troy Iwata, Jonathan Raviv (The Band's Visit), Osh Ghanimah (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Deven Kolluri, and Nikhil Saboo (Mean Girls).
