Ghostlight Records and Rodgers & Hammerstein, An Imagem Company, have shared a track from the forthcoming album Pipe Dream. This first live New York City Center Encores! series cast recording is set for a September 18 release.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1955 musical rarity centers on outcasts yearning for a better life who populate the bordellos and flophouses of a 1950s California seaside town and is based on John Steinbeck’s novels Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday.
Directed by Marc Bruni, the cast includes Will Chase as Doc, Laura Osnes as Suzy, Leslie Uggams as Fauna, Tom Wopat as Mac and Stephen Wallem as Hazel. Musical director Rob Berman conducts the orchestra of 30 musicians.
