We are so excited to share that we will release the original Off-Broadway cast recording of Superhero, with music and lyrics by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and a book by John Logan (Moulin Rouge, Red). The album will be available for digital download and streaming December 6.
The work had its world premiere Off-Broadway in January at Second Stage Theater. The full cast of that production has recorded the score for this album, led by Tony nominees Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!, Big Fish) and Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) with Kyle McArthur, Julia Abueva, Jake Levy, Salena Qureshi, Thom Sesma, and Nathaniel Stampley.
“It’s Not Like in the Movies,” performed by Pinkham and McArthur, is available for streaming and as an immediate download with pre-order. To pre-order and pre-add Superhero, click here.
The musical centers on a fractured family, a mysterious stranger in a nearby apartment, and an unexpected hero who just might save the day. The Off-Broadway production was directed by Jason Moore (The Cher Show, Avenue Q).
“Creating Superhero with John Logan and Jason Moore has been one of the great joys of my life,” says Kitt. “It is a story that is extremely personal to me and my family, and I’m so grateful to Scott Farthing and to everyone at Sony Masterworks for their unwavering support in capturing and preserving our piece.”
The original cast recording of Superhero is produced by Kitt and Derik Lee and will include liner notes from theatre critic Chris Jones.
