This deserves its own thread!! Such a relief. The producers of the hit Broadway revival of New York City Center’s production Sunday in the Park with George starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, announced today that the show will live on past its critically acclaimed, sold-out limited engagement, with a cast album to be released this summer by Warner Music Group.The producers also announced today that Sunday in the Park with George has recouped its entire investment in just 56 performances, making it the first show of the 2016-2017 season to do so.http://www.talkinbroadway.com/allthatchat_new/d.php?id=2373738
Why would a press release emerge on ATC before any of the news sites...?
Here is BWW's press release.https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Jake-Gyllenhaal-Led-SUNDAY-IN-THE-PARK-WITH-GEORGE-Will-Get-Cast-Recording-20170420
What amazing news. I was really getting worried, but I'm so happy about this. Jake's Putting it Together is amazing and I can't wait to have that preserved. Also, Move On is going to have to be on repeat.
Great news! I would also love for there to be a video recording of this, but I guess that's too much to ask for (or is it?).
TODAY IS A GREAT DAY
ATC's press release seems to be the only one mentioning a June release. The others are saying on a summer date to be announced.
I literally started crying I'm so happy.
OMG. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES.
Cast recording?!? Fabulous!!!! I can add my favorites to my 2016 Broadway playlist!
AMAZING news!! I can't wait. And only 56 performances?? That insanely fast. Congrats to the cast, crew, producers, Sondheim & Lapine AND ATG on an incredibly successful first production at the Hudson.
I am so excited I don't have words!!!!
I literally just got moist reading this news.Excuse me while I go rinse off!
Seeing this the Saturday after it opened (from the first row) back in February will definitely be a highlight of the year for me... so I'm happy to hear that there will be a recording to help me relive it. I too was hoping for a video recording of it, particularly since it recouped - you would think they'd want this to get a wider viewing than the limited number of us who were able to get into see it

Scared my boyfriend half to death because I screamed so loud. Couldn't be happier about this news!

Thrilled for this news just as I prepare myself to fly out for the final performance!
Fabulous news. So glad have a permanent, official copy of this production.
Extremely happy I get to have Move On and Finishing the Hat on repeat now!
this headline literally made me say YASSS. good for them recouping! and i cannot wait for what is sure to be a fabulous recording.
Has a musical in recent times ever recouped this fast? Crazy! Does anyone know the capital expenses that they were trying to earn back? If so, we can estimate the average weekly nut.
