The recording will feature Tony winner Victoria Clark, who leads the cast in the title role, as well as Justin Cooley, Tony nominee Steven Boyer, Alli Mauzey, Bonnie Milligan, Olivia Elease Hardy, Fernell Hogan, Michael Iskander, and Nina White.

Kimberly Akimbo, which opened on Broadway this past November, features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (based on his play of the same name), music by Tony winner Jeanine Tesori, and direction by Jessica Stone.

Some Like It Hot will record its cast album this month with Concord Theatricals Recordings, and has a planned digital and streaming release date of March 24, with a physical release to follow.

Based on the classic MGM film, the new musical comedy opened at the Shubert Theatre in December 2022. The show has a book by Matthew López and Amber Ruffin, music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw.

The original cast recording will feature Tony winner Christian Borle as Joe, J. Harrison Ghee as Jerry, Adrianna Hicks as Sugar, Kevin Del Aguila as Osgood, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Sweet Sue, Adam Heller as Mulligan, Mark Lotito as Spats, and Angie Schworer as Minnie.
