Broadway's The Book of Mormon to Release Original Broadway Cast Album on Vinyl
The Tony-winning musical features music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone.
The Book of Mormon is set to release its Tony- and Grammy-winning original Broadway cast recording on vinyl on November 18. The special edition vinyl set will be available in the U.S at Barnes & Noble, through the official web store, and to audience members at the merchandise stands of Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre and U.S. tour stops.
The vinyl set will also include special features, such as new, embossed album cover artwork; a full-color, LP-size booklet, including liner notes by Frank Rich and complete lyrics; never-before-seen production photos and set model illustrations; an exclusive set of removable stickers featuring characters from the show; and an MP3 download card for the full digital cast recording. Following a six-month Barnes & Noble exclusive, the two-disc set will be sold in U.S. record stores.
Written by Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon won 2011 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book, among several others. Choreographed by Casey Nicholaw and directed by Nicholaw and Parker, it tells the story of two Mormon missionaries who get more than they bargained for when they're sent to AIDS-ravaged Uganda.
