No need to cry salty teardrops! Broadway Records announced today the forthcoming release of Caroline, or Change (The New Broadway Cast Recording) which will be made in collaboration with Roundabout Theatre Company under the new Broadway Records label imprint, Roundabout Records.

The album, completing recording today, November 16, will preserve the full score and will be available digitally on December 17.  The double-CD release will be available in the theater and on Broadway Records’ website mid-to-late December. The CD will be available at all major retailers for Martin Luther King Jr. weekend on January 14. The double-disc set is now available for pre-order.

Broadway Records President Van Dean says, “We are thrilled beyond words to be able to preserve this revelatory new Broadway production of Caroline, or Change.  With Broadway Records now part of the Cutting Edge Media Music family, this Roundabout Records partnership is the first to be announced by this formidable combination with more exciting A-list theatrical partnerships to be announced in the coming months. We are thrilled to be joining together with Roundabout Theatre Company on the new imprint, Roundabout Records. Caroline, or Change is the perfect first release for this new venture!”

The New Broadway Cast Recording of Caroline, or Change is produced by Elliot Scheiner, Nigel Lilley, Jeanine Tesori, and Van Dean and edited and mixed by Lawrence Manchester.

Associate Producers are Gina Maria Leonetti, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, Walport Productions, Franklin Theatrical Group/John Wall, and Mia Moravis.

“Producing Caroline, or Change and bringing its star, Sharon D Clarke, to Broadway have been extraordinarily satisfying, especially in light of the struggles of the past two years,” said Roundabout Artistic Director and CEO Todd Haimes. “Being able to preserve it for all time–as our 25th cast album and the premiere recording for the Roundabout Records imprint with Broadway Records–means the world to everyone who worked so hard to get it here. I’m looking forward to many more collaborations with Van and his team.”

Caroline Thibodeaux is a Black woman working as a maid for a Jewish family in 1963 Louisiana, as the civil rights movement is transforming America. In her Olivier Award-winning performance, Sharon D Clarke brings this indelible heroine to “incandescent” life (Time Out London), in a production that launches to “the titanic dimensions of greatness” (The New York Times). From Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner and Tony Award winner Jeanine Tesori comes the show that pulses with the urgency and passion that’s shaping the world today.

Caroline, or Change is playing a limited engagement through January 9, 2022, at Studio 54 on Broadway.
