Thanks to our very perceptive BroadwayWorld message boarders, we have learned that it seems the new revival cast of EVITA, which took their opening night bows last night, April 5, at the Marquee Theatre, will be recording a cast album.
Amazon.com is now accepting pre-orders for "Evita- New Broadway Cast Recording" and indicates that the album will be avilable on June 5, 2012. The disc is priced at $14.77 and will be distributed by Sony Masterworks Broadway.
No official announcement has been made and no further details on recording dates are avilable at this time.
The company of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's landmark musical is led by Ricky Martin as Che, Elena Roger in her Broadway debut as Eva Perón and Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón, along with Max von Essen as Migaldi and Rachel Potter as the Mistress.
The creative team includes Scenic and Costume Designer Christopher Oram, Lighting Designer Neil Austin, Sound Designer Mick Potter, Wig and Hair Designer Richard Mawbey, Projection Designer Zachary Borovay, and Music Supervisor/Director Kristen Blodgette. Orchestrations are by Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Cullen, and dance arrangements are by David Chase. Michael Grandage directs and Rob Ashford will choreographs the first new Broadway production of the musical since it debuted on Broadway over 30 years ago.
