June 4, 2012 by J!-ENT
(June 4, 2012 – New York, NY) – Broadway Records officially launched this spring with three exciting cast album releases: an EP of Nick Jonas performing 5 tracks from the smash hit musical HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, the cast album for the two-time Tony-nominated BONNIE & CLYDE, and the cast album for the Tony-nominated LYSYSTRATA JONES. More titles will be announced soon.
Produced by six-time Grammy nominee Robert Sher who produced the Grammy nominated Daniel Radcliffe/John Larroquette HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUR REALLY TRYING cast album, the new Nick Jonas recording is executive produced by Van Dean and Kenny Howard of The Broadway Consortium (Executive producers of the Radcliffe/Larroquette album) and Ken Mahoney.
With the aid of a trusty self-help book “How to Succeed in Business” wily window washer J. Pierrepont Finch enjoys a riotous rise up the corporate ladder. Will Finch’s unorthodox business practices at the World-Wide Wicket Company get him in hot water with the head honcho J.B. Biggley, and jeopardize his romance with secretary Rosemary Pilkington? With a hilarious book and beloved score by Frank Loesser, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING is packed with hit standards, five of which appear on this EP: “How To Succeed,” “Company Way,” “Rosemary,” “I Believe In You,” and “Brotherhood of Man.”
BONNIE & CLYDE, which starred Laura Osnes (2012 Tony nominee, Bonnie & Clyde, 2011 Drama Desk nominee, Anything Goes) and Jeremy Jordan (2012 Tony nominee, Newsies) as Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, respectively, played its final performance on Friday, December 30th at 8:00pm at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. BONNIE & CLYDE has music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black, book by Ivan Menchell and music supervision/orchestrations/arrangements by John McDaniel.
BONNIE & CLYDE reached #2 on the Billboard Cast Album chart in its third week on the chart (it debuted at #6). The cast album features the complete Broadway score as well as a bonus track, “This Never Happened Before,” which was cut out of town.
LYSISTRATA JONES is one of most acclaimed musicals of the current Broadway season. Ben Brantley of The New York Times raved, “LYSISTRATA JONES brings a heightened touch of summer sun and silliness to what has been an exceptionally gray season for musicals. Lewis Flinn’s effervescent score makes reference to Motown, John Mayer-type ballads, “Glee”-like choral rousers and (how could it not?) Toni Basil’s cheerleading novelty hit, ‘Mickey.’”
The Athens University basketball team hasn’t won a game in 30 years. But when spunky transfer student Lysistrata Jones (Patti Murrin) dares the squad’s fed-up girlfriends to stop ‘giving it up’ to their boyfriends until they win a game, their legendary losing streak could be coming to an end. In this boisterous new musical comedy, Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse give Aristophanes’ classic comedy a sexy, modern twist and take student activism to a whole new level.
The EP of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, starring Nick Jonas, and the cast albums of BONNIE & CLYDE and LYSISTRATA JONES are available digitally through all major providers and in stores now.
