Cast Recordings Yet to Be Announced

While this production featuring a female Bobbie is documented with a West End cast recording, this year’s Tony Award-winning revival, Company, has not announced plans for a cast recording. Make like Bobbie on her birthday and make a wish we can someday stream this Broadway cast.

Funny Girl
The first Broadway production of Funny Girl since the original opened this spring at the August Wilson Theatre starring Beanie Feldstein, Ramin Karimloo, 2022 Tony Award nominee Jared Grimes, and Jane Lynch. Even with that starry cast at the lead, unfortunately, no plans for cast recording have been revealed yet.

The Music Man
Another revival on this list, the six-time Tony-nominated production of The Music Man starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster currently has no public plans to record a cast album. We can only hope that the “Wells Fargo Wagon” will bring us a cast recording one day.
