The cast album of her musical Heartbearts, which has seen productions at regional theatres around the country, has been recorded and released on the Varese Sarabande label. McBroom also co-wrote and starred in an original musical, A Woman of Will, which played Off-Broadway in 2005.  She also provided lyrics for Dangerous Beauty, recently seen at NAMT.
