"In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last - only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life - beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life." - Sherie Rene Scott

My fair lady, on casette. w/ Julie Andrews
I had casettes of the sound of music and grease but I'm pretty sure those were from the movies, not the broadway shows.

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of PIPPIN. Purchased at the Imperial Theatre on W. 45th Street in 1972. I was 7 years old. It was my first Broadway show.

If you are specifically asking for Broadway Cast Recording (since I did own the Jesus Christ Superstar Original Concept Album first (and that is not counting soundtracks like Grease & West Side Story)...

...First Broadway Cast Recording was scarily enough the Into the Woods Revival.

EVITA never had an Original Broadway Cast Recording.

Are you referring to the American Premiere Cast Recording with Patti LuPone, Mandy Patinkin and Bob Gunton?

The first "soundtrack" from a "show" was the movie version of ANNIE that my mom had on LP. However, the first cast recording that I bought with my "lemonade stand money" was the 90s Revival of Show Boat. I got hooked.

Phantom.

Company was the first ever given to me.

Since, I painted the apartment hallway ceiling "red-orange" because of a The Fantastics lyric.

Then, I've bought back through the repertoire to learn shows and roles. Earliest is Pal Joey.

Somehow, disks & tapes of movies of Broadway shows don't seem to count, no matter how good some turn out. I like only the Original Cast recordings. It's just a thing.

I keep the vinyl/tape/cd collection in chronological order when show was produced.

(An ironic twist, and nothing personal ... a fan of a show about spelling perhaps? ... know that "You're" always and only means "you are" and what you mean in your title is "Your". Just sayin'.)
