BROADWAY PRODUCTION BEGINS PERFORMANCES MONDAY!


New York, NY (4/14/10) – Ghostlight Records will release the original cast recording of Everyday Rapture, the much raved about Broadway-bound musical co-written by and starring Sherie Rene Scott.  Beginning April 27th, the cast recording will be available on iTunes, on the Ghostlight/Sh-K-Boom website (www.sh-k-boom.com) and at Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theatre, where Everyday Rapture begins performances Monday evening (April 19th).  The CD will be available in-stores in early June (exact date to be announced shortly).  Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Everyday Rapture is co-written by Dick Scanlan and directed by Michael Mayer.  
 
Everyday Rapture is the story of a young woman’s psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Everyday Rapture features an enchantingly eclectic selection of songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, Mister Rogers, The Supremes, and Judy Garland.  The New York Times said of Everyday Rapture “it’s the kind of show this city hasn’t seen since Bette Midler last played Radio City Musical Hall.  It easily qualifies as one of the year’s most extravagantly entertaining new musicals.”
 
The Cast Recording of Everyday Rapture features the full cast, which also includes Betsey Wolfe, Eamon Foley and Lindsay Mendez.
 
The track list is as follows:

        1. The Other Side of This Life (Overture)
         2. Got a Thing on My Mind
         3. Elevation
         4. On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe

Founded 10 years ago by Kurt Deutsch and Sherie Rene Scott, Sh-K-Boom and its imprint Ghostlight Records has become the leading independent force in musical theatre recording—shining a light towards its future while continuing to honor its past. The label is renowned for its efforts to encourage and support the music of the most innovative new voices on Broadway, to help bridge the gap between pop/rock and musicals, and to preserve the scores of important works. Ghostlight Records received a 2009 Grammy Award for their double-CD release of In the Heights (already a Tony Award Winner for Best Musical and Best Score) and was also just Grammy-nominated for the new cast recording of Broadway’s Hair, which debuted at #1 on the Broadway Billboard Chart. In addition to In the Heights and Hair, Ghostlight’s recent releases of the OCRs for Tony and Pulitzer-Prize winning Next to Normal, Passing Strange, and the single release featuring the winner of MTV’s Legally Blonde The Musical competition, have brought the label acclaim for their innovative marketing techniques and their efforts to reach the next generation of Broadway music fans via iTunes, music videos and more. Also featured amongst the label’s over 75 titles are the popular cast albums of Legally Blonde, The Last Five Years, Hair, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, [title of show] and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and solo albums from major Broadway artists like Patti LuPone, Sutton Foster, Kelli O’Hara, Christine Ebersole, Alice Ripley and Adam Pascal.
