Show DescriptionCome celebrate the release of one of Ghostlight Records’ newest cast recordings, Calvin Berger, with an album release concert at Joe’s Pub! This concert will reunite the full cast from the recording – including Noah Weisberg (Legally Blonde, South Pacific), Krystal Joy Brown (Leap of Faith), David Hull (Wicked) and Dana Steingold (…Spelling Bee) – plus some other special Broadway guests, and will feature orchestrations by 3-time Tony winner Doug Besterman (Sister Act, How To Succeed, The Producers).
CALVIN BERGER -- winner of the Jerry Bock Award, Richard Rodgers Award, Kleban Prize, and Noel Coward Prize -- is a hip, heartfelt, hysterical new musical by Barry Wyner, loosely based on Cyrano De Bergerac. It has been performed at Barrington Stage and Manhattan Theatre Club, and most recently at George Street Playhouse under the direction of 3-time Tony winner Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work, Anything Goes, The Pajama Game). It is licensed by the legendary Tams-Witmark Music Library and has several songs published by Hal Leonard. The album release concert will be directed by Travis Greisler, music directed by Aron Acurso and produced by Katie Riegel.
The Original Cast Recording of CALVIN BERGER will be released September 25 on Ghostlight Records.
