Broadway Records To Release Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording Of EINSTEIN'S DREAMS On September 10th

Broadway Records announced today the release of the original Off-Broadway cast recording of Einstein's Dreams. Written by Joanne Sydney Lessner (book and lyrics) and Joshua Rosenblum (music and lyrics), the musical ran Off-Broadway last winter to much acclaim and received four Drama Desk nominations, including Outstanding Music and Lyrics.

The recording is produced by Rosenblum and Tim Peierls and will be available digitally on Thursday, September 10th.

Based on the bestselling novel by Alan Lightman, this elegant new musical bridges worlds imagined and real, exploring the wonders of human imagination and the romance of knowledge. Through a score rich in lyrical wit and soaring melodies, Einstein's Dreams unlocks the passionate intellect of one of the 20th century's greatest thinkers. With music dubbed "glorious beyond belief, the most beautiful music in the city by far" (BroadwayRadio), the full cast of Einstein's Dreams features Zal Owen as Einstein and Alexandra Silber as Josette, as well as Brennan Caldwell, Talia Cosentino, Stacia Fernandez, Lisa Helmi Johanson, Michael McCoy, Tess Primack, and Vishal Vaidya. The Music Director is Milton Granger, and the orchestra includes Bruce Doctor, Kiku Enomoto, Jonathan Levine, Eleanor Norton, and Saadi Zain.
