MASTERWORKS BROADWAY was in the recording studio this weekend working on the upcoming recording of the Original Broadway Cast of WONDERLAND - A New Alice. A New Musical. The album will be produced by Frank Wildhorn, David Lai and Jason Howland and will be available in May 2011. BroadwayWorld.com stopped by to get a peak behind the scenes!
A new spin on the classic story of Alice and her Looking-Glass world, WONDERLAND is about a modern-day woman who goes on a life-changing adventure far below the streets of New York City, where a colorful cast of strange but familiar characters help her rediscover what's really important.
