The 2017 SITPWG Cast Recording is HERE!#1
Posted: 4/20/17 at 5:15pm

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.

Why would a press release emerge on ATC before any of the news sites...?

"...everyone finally shut up, and the audience could enjoy the beginning of the Anatevka Pogram in peace."

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?).

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.

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.

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

I had been thinking this for awhile, as I won't get to see it live. This seemed like the perfect candidate for a BroadwayHD live stream.

Based on Ashley Park's Instagram story yesterday, seems it was recorded for the Lincoln Center archives.

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.
