And once again...nobody remembers the movie had any other scene in it.

(Oh, I'm sorry, two scenes--Insert clip of "God Help the Outcasts". :roll: )

While it appears that the show sill not be moving forward to Broadway at this time, a cast recording has been made and will be released sometime in January. iTunes will be taking pre-orders beginning December 4.

Alan Menken posted a pic on his Instagram of the cast gathering during one of the recording sessions:

Let's see how long this stays up.

Here's the "Made of Stone" number from the show.

For those who may not be aware, the Cast recording is now available for purchase on iTunes. There is also a physical version available according to Amazon.

It's everything and more than I expected to be honest. Such a shame it isn't moving to Broadway. So great to finally have an English version of the stage production in my collection. My preliminary opinion is that this is the best adaptation of a Disney film to stage, musically at least.

Sorry for the double post, but here's a little featurette Disney posted on the cast and crew making the CD.

Great review Dan,

At the moment I would say my favourite track is Out There. But I do need to give the new tracks a few more listens as usual with these things I tend to lean towards the original movie songs. I also quite enjoyed Someday. Great to hear it within the context of the story even if it has been tweaked a bit from it's original purpose.
