The original cast recording of the Off-Broadway musical 'Rooms: a Rock Romance', which starred Leslie Kritzer and Doug Kreeger, will be released on iTunes on December 8, according to a spokesperson for the CD.
The CD cast recording of 'Rooms: A Rock Romance', which ran Off-Broadway earlier this year, will be released in early 2010, with a specific date yet to be announced. There will be a pre-release listening party for their cast album on Wednesday, October 14th. ROOMS ran at the New World Stages and features a score by and a book by Paul Scott Goodman and Miriam Gordon. The Off-Broadway run starred Broadway's Leslie Kritzer and Doug Kreeger.
The album promo party will include live performances of songs from the show, as well as an early listening of a selection of songs off the album. The album is produced by Time Life Records.
Rooms begins in late 1970's Glasgow where Monica, an ambitious singer/songwriter meets Ian, a reclusive rocker. The two quickly become entangled creatively and romantically. Their music takes them first to London and ultimately to New York City, where they discover the vibrant new music scene and create an intimate partnership, their love deepening while their personalities drive them apart. A five-piece rock band accompanies these two characters as they search for the balance between ambition and happiness.
The show garnered three Outer Critics Circle Award Nominations, including Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical, Outstanding New Score (Broadway or Off-Broadway), and Outstanding Actress in a Musical (Leslie Kritzer). The promo party will be held at Sweet Carolines on October 14th at 8:30pm. Tickets are $15 and are available online at www.ovationtix.com.
