Rodgers & Hammerstein's PIPE DREAM, recorded live at New York City Center's Encores! series in March, will be released by Ghostlight Records on September 18. Produced by Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem Company, this preservation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's 1955 Broadway musical rarity marks the first time an Encores! musical has been recorded live.

Bringing the score gloriously to life, and captured on the live album, is the Encores! cast of 29 under the direction of Marc Bruni, with an orchestra of 30 musicians under the baton of Music Director Rob Berman. The cast includes Will Chase as Doc ("All Kinds of People," "All at Once You Love Her," "The Man I Used to Be"), Laura Osnes as Suzy ("Everybody's Got a Home But Me," "The Next Time It Happens"), Leslie Uggams as Fauna ("Sweet Thursday"), Tom Wopat as Mac ("A Lopsided Bus," "The Party That We’re Gonna Have Tomorrow Night") and Stephen Wallem as Hazel ("Thinkin'"). Rodgers & Hammerstein’s PIPE DREAM is produced for records by Bruce Pomahac, Rob Berman and Ted Chapin. Co-producer: Scott Lehrer. Executive Producer: Kurt Deutsch.

Featuring essays by R&H President Ted Chapin, R&H Director of Music Bruce Pomahac, Encores! Artistic Director Jack Viertel, a Synopsis and more, the CD will be available in stores and, along with the digital album, on-line as of September 18. CD pre-orders are now on sale at http://sh-k-boom.com/pipedream.shtml where you can also find more information about the recording.
