The entire cast of the critically acclaimed TRIASSIC PARQ The Musical headed into Sear Sound Studios this past Saturday, August 11th to create the original cast recording, which will be available in September on iTunes, Amazon.com, Xbox LIVE, and TriassicParq.com on the new Starkadia label. Check out photos from the recording studio below!
Winner of the 2010 Best Musical Award at FringeNYC, TRIASSIC PARQ recently concluded its limited summer Off-Broadway premiere engagement at the SoHo Playhouse. Written by Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz and Steve Wargo, TRIASSIC PARQ was directed by Mr. Pailet, with choreography by Kyle Mullins and musical direction by Zak Sandler.
The cast of TRIASSIC PARQ featured Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Hairspray, Lysistrata Jones), Brandon Espinoza (Les Miserables, Captains Courageous), Wade McCollum (Submissions Only), Claire Neumann (Boston Marriage), Lee Seymour (title role in Hamlet, Shakespeare’s Globe), Shelley Thomas (Zanna, Don’t!), and Alex Wyse (HBO’s Bored to Death).
A raucous new musical that combines singing, sex, and Velociraptors in ways hitherto unimagined, TRIASSIC PARQ follows a group of cloned dinosaurs as they unearth the very foundations of their existence. Morality, faith, science, gender identity, and interspecies fornication are all explored, and sung about, as Morgan Freeman narrates this epic tale of love, loss and resurrected reptiles.
