The new musical from the Public Theater, Soft Power, continues to be a success. It was just announced that Ghostlight Records will record the original cast album that is set to debut in spring of 2020.
Soft Power has a play and lyrics written by Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang and music and additional lyrics by Tony winner Jeanine Tesori. The album itself will be produced by Matt Stine.
Oskar Eustis had this to say about the original cast album:
Soft Power is a beautiful, heartbreaking, and history-making show: this recording will not only save this amazing cast and orchestra, but it will be a thrilling map for what promises to be an exciting future for the show.
The production began previews on September 24th and officially opened on October 15th and was extended through November 17, 2019.
