The Everyday Rapture cast album will be released on iTunes on April 27 from Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records and be available in the theater that date, with a store release set for June. It includes songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, Mister Rogers, The Supremes, Tom Waits, U2, and Judy Garland.
The creative team also includes Tom Kitt (orchestrations & arrangements), Michael Rafter (music supervision), Marco Paguia (music direction), Christine Jones (sets), Tom Broecker (costumes), Kevin Adams (lights), Brian Ronan (sound) and Darrel Maloney (projections).
