Sh-K-Boom Records recently preserved the score of the Broadway musical High Fidelity on an original cast recording of the show.

High Fidelity opened on December 7th at the Imperial Theatre (249 West 45 Street) after beginning previews on November 20th.  Having played 18 preview performances and 14 regular performances, it closed on December 17th.

High Fidelity has music by Tom Kitt, lyrics by Amanda Green and book by David Lindsay-Abaire. "High Fidelity is a new musical comedy based on the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby," state notes. The show "tells the story of Rob, a record store owner who knows almost everything there is to know about pop music, but almost nothing about how to hold on to a girl. Rob's love life, already a broken record of heartache, falls off the charts completely when he gets dumped by Laura….but that just sets him up for one of the top 5 romantic comebacks ever," stated press materials.

High Fidelity starred Will Chase (Lennon, Rent and Aida) as Rob and Jenn Colella (Urban Cowboy) as Laura.  Jay Klaitz, Christian Anderson, Jeb Brown, Rachel Stern, Emily Swallow, Kirsten Wyatt, Caren Lyn Manuel and Anne Warren were also featured. High Fidelity was directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli.
