The cast of Liberty: A Monumental New Musical gathered this weekend at 54 BELOW to celebrate the launch of the brand new cast album - check out a look back below!

The concert featured Abigail Shapiro (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Shapiro Sisters: Live Out Loud) as the title role in Liberty: A Monumental New Musical. Liberty also included Emma Rosenthal (Brigadoon) as "Emma Lazurus," Ben McHugh (Mamma Mia!) as "Walker," Adinah Alexander (Kinky Boots) as "Moscowitz / Schuyler," Tom Souhrada (Mary Poppins) as "McKay / Pulitzer," Ryan Duncan (Shrek) as "Goodleaf," C. Mingo Long(South Pacific) as "Samuel," and Andrew DiTusa as "Giovanni."

Liberty: A Monumental New Musical features a book and lyrics by Dana Leslie Goldstein with music by Jon Goldstein and tells the story of a determined, young French immigrant who arrives alone in New York Harbor in 1884. The powerful, sweeping new musical follows Liberty as she struggles to find her place in the ever- evolving country she's come to symbolize. Liberty: A Monumental New Musical was adapted from original material by Dana Leslie Goldstein, Jon Goldstein, and Robert Bruce McIntosh.
