It is now available for pre-order on the Broadway Records website at http://www.broadwayrecords.com/cds/liberty as well as on Amazon.com and other select retailers.

"Liberty's journey to Off-Broadway was 6 years in the making and the creative team and cast could not be more proud of our Theatre 80 run," said producer Theresa Wozunk. "We welcomed an enthusiastic audience of tourists, students and locals - all moved by this true and inspiring NY story. Being included in the Broadway Records catalog will enable this beautiful and timely score to reach a wider audience, and we could not be more thrilled".

Abigail Shapiro, the 14-year-old actress seen in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, stars in the title role in Liberty: A Monumental New Musical. Abigail is also one half of the Shapiro Sisters who released their debut album, "Live Out Loud: Live at 54 BELOW" last fall. Shapiro is joined on the album by the rest of the Original Off-Broadway Cast: Emma Rosenthal (Off-Broadway: The Threepenny Opera, Night Games)as Emma Lazurus, Ben McHugh (Mamma Mia, tour of Hairspray) as Walker, Cheryl Stern (La Cage, The Women) as Moscowitz/Schuyler, Tom Souhrada (Mary Poppins, Evita) as McKay/Pulitzer, Ryan Duncan (Shrek, Altar Boyz) as Goodleaf, C. Mingo Long (Show Boat, South Pacific) as Samuel and Andrew DiTusa (A Little Princess, Freckleface Strawberry) as Giovanni. The Off-Broadway production was directed by Evan Pappas (7 Brides For 7 Brothers, Funny Girl), music directed by Jeffrey Lodin (The Sphinx Winx) and produced by Theresa Wozunk (The Gershwin's Porgy and Bess) and Timothy Harper.

Liberty: A Monumental New Musical, featuring a book and lyrics by Dana Leslie Goldstein with music by Jon Goldstein, tells the story of a beautiful French immigrant who arrives in New York Harbor in 1884. The powerful, sweeping new musical follows the statuesque immigrant's struggle, strife, and success 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. The album of Liberty is produced by Michael J. Moritz, Jr.
