PS Classics recorded the cast album of the Broadway musical hit Xanadu on October 29. The production, presented by Robert Ahrens, Tara Smith and Brian Swibel opened at the Helen Hayes Theatre on July 10 to great critical and audience acclaim.
The recording features the cast which stars Kerry Butler, Cheyenne Jackson, Tony Roberts, Mary Testa and Jackie Hoffman and features Curtis Holbrook, Anika Larsen, Kenita Miller and Andre Ward. Xanadu has book by Douglas Carter Beane, music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar and is directed by Christopher Ashley, with choreography by Dan Knechtges. Eric Stern is musical director. The album will be produced by Jeffrey Lesser.
The label expects to have the CD in stores on January 8, 2008, although it will be available exclusively at the PS Classics website, the Xanadu website (www.xanaduonbroadway.com) and at the Helen Hayes Theatre by the first week of December.Photos by Ben Strothmann
