Ghostlight Records Announces The Upcoming Original Cast Recording for THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA
Ghostlight Records has announced plans for an original cast recording of the Lincoln Center Theater production of The Gardens of Anuncia.
The cast album is being recorded today – Monday, December 4 – to be released in 2024. The album will be produced by Lawrence Manchester and Michael John LaChiusa.
The Gardens of Anuncia began previews Thursday, October 19th and opened on Monday, November 20 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. The musical stars Enrique Acevedo, Andréa Burns, Eden Espinosa, Priscilla Lopez, Tally Sessions, Mary Testa and Kalyn West.
Originally developed and produced at the Old Globe, The Gardens of Anuncia is inspired by the early life story of an icon of the American stage: Broadway legend Graciela Daniele. Anuncia (Priscilla Lopez) tends the garden of her country house as she reflects on her life, looking back on her girlhood in Juan Perón’s Argentina and paying homage to the family of women whose love and sacrifices allowed her to become an artist. This funny, poignant, and beautiful musical features a beguilingly romantic and tango-infused score filled with the exuberant sounds of women reveling in the joys of being alive.
The Gardens of Anuncia has book, music, and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa, directed and co-choreographed by Graciela Daniele. The show also features co-choreography by Alex Sanchez, orchestrations by Michael Starobin, music direction by Deborah Abramson, and casting by Tara Rubin Casting, Xavier Rubiano, CSA. The production has sets by Mark Wendland, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, recreated by David Lander, and sound by Drew Levy. Thomas J. Gates is the Stage Manager.
