Anyone know if a cast recording is planned- given the material on the website, I assume they've been into the studio already?

Thanks

Still no news on this? What is taking so long? Because as devonian.t stated it seems like they have already been to the studio because of the sample track available.

I really like the new version, but this is an interesting insight into the work in process. A much less mainstream musical theatre sound and very evocative.

Thanks for the link.

PS The footage on the official site is great, too.

Your welcome for the link.. And I've seen all the videos on their website from the show in Toronto till now. I came to London to see the new version. I figured it's interesting to see how far it all changed.

Is it a soundtrack or a cast recording? I always thought a soundtrack was the track of sound that ran down the side of movie reels and that a cast recording was just that , a recording of the original cast from the theatre.
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

I know!! If they don't hurry up they will loose so much interest. Especially from over here in the states. If they don't release it soon we will forget about it, since we are so far away from the show. I wish I could afford to go see it though. And I hate how they don't have a merchandise section on their site.

What do you mean by "Rehearsing Studio Time"?

All the above happened nearly 3 months ago. Swings dont take up that much rehearsal time. They wouldnt let it stop the recording of the show. I agree that we may not see a cast recording.

I really hope they do decide to release a recording. From the quality of the Lothlorien song on their website it makes me think they have already been into the studio for something, if not for the cast recording.
