Classic Stage Company's revival of Passion will record an original cast album on the PS Classics label. The recording will take place on April 8, with the two-disc record scheduled for a June 4 release.
Directed by John Doyle and starring Ryan Silverman and Tony nominees Melissa Errico and Judy Kuhn, the musical opened at the off-Broadway theater on February 28, and was recently extended to play through April 19.
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical follows handsome soldier Giorgio (Silverman), who becomes the object of obsessive love from Fosca (Kuhn), his colonel's chronically ill, bedridden cousin. The story unfolds as Giorgio sends and receives letters from his mistress, Clara (Errico). In addition to Silverman, Errico and Kuhn, the cast of Passion includes Stephen Bogardus, Jeffry Denman, Jason Michael Evans, Ken Krugman, Orville Mendoza, Tom Nelis, Will Reynolds, John Antony and Amy Justman.
Passion features music direction by Rob Berman, orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, costume design by Ann Hould-Ward, lighting design by Jane Cox and sound design by Dan Moses Schreier.
