"Shaking the Blues Away" in the Recording Booth With the Cast of Holiday Inn
The original Broadway cast album for Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn was released digitally today by Ghostlight Records (physical CDs will be sold in stores beginning July 21).
Directed by Gordon Greenberg with Tony-nominated choreography by Denis Jones, the musical ran last fall at Studio 54, featuring a cast led by Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham, Lora Lee Gayer, Tony nominee Megan Lawrence, Danny Rutigliano, Megan Sikora, and Corbin Bleu.
Based on the 1942 film starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, the musical's score is composed of more than 20 of the most beloved songs from the Irving Berlin catalogue, including "Blue Skies," "Steppin’ Out With My Baby," "Easter Parade," "Happy Holiday," "White Christmas," and "Heatwave."
Take a look at the album's video teaser, including behind-the-scenes footage from the recording studio and a sample of the tune, "Shaking the Blues Away."
