Ghostlight Records released the Original Cast Recording of the acclaimed epic musical GIANT online and in stores on May 21, 2013. GIANT had its New York Premiere at The Public Theater last fall, and was a co-production with Dallas Theater Center. GIANT features music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa, and a book by Sybille Pearson, based on the novel by Edna Ferber. This production was directed by Michael Greif and had choreography by Alex Sanchez. To pre-order the album, please visit www.sh-k-boom.com/giant.html.

The two-disc cast album - produced by Kurt Deutsch, Joel Moss and Michael John LaChiusa - includes a 44 page, full-color booklet with the entire libretto and liner notes by Oskar Eustis, The Public Theater's Artistic Director. GIANT boasts a company of 26 actors, a 17-piece orchestra, and lush orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin, with additional orchestrations by Larry Hochman.

This recording marks The Public's fourth album in collaboration with Ghostlight Records, including the previously released Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Hair, and See What I Wanna See. This is also the label's fifth album with Michael John LaChiusa (Queen of the Mist, See What I Wanna See, Bernarda Alba, and Little Fish). The GIANT original cast recording has been supported by the Shen Family Foundation. TheaterMania.com, a sponsor of the recording, is presenting exclusive online content featuring a documentary which chronicles the story of GIANT against the backdrop of the cast album recording sessions, also including interviews with the cast and creative team.
