TBIC Music Group will be releasing a concept album of the new immersive electro-swing musical Whisper Darkly – the first musical written in the retro-inspired genre – on Friday, February 23th. Theatrely got a exclusive first listen to  the song Run In The Rain sang by Aléna Watters who you may have seen on Broadway recently in Bad Cinderella, Mrs Doubtfire, and The Cher Show.

In Whisper Darkly, it’s once again 1928 and the audience are patrons of Manhattan’s notorious speakeasy, the Hush Club. The proprietress, Topeka McShane, leads her cast of chorines, comics, and dancers with an iron fist, while teaching her niece, Evie, the ropes of big city life. When international African-American singing sensation Wysandria Cole Davis shows up in the audience, it kicks off a tumultuous evening that leaves the club and its denizens forever changed.

To mark the anniversary of the start of Prohibition, a special preview dance mix from the album will be released on  Wednesday, January 17th. Whisper Darkly features music and lyrics by Andrew Gerleand book by DJ Salisbury.  The album is produced by Andrew Gerle and PiSk (Roberto Costa) and is co-produced by Pamela Hurst-Della Pietra and Stephen Della Pietra, Avadon Broadway LLC.
