The Public Theater's world premiere musical Love's Labour's Lost, penned by Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson collaborators Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers, will be preserved with an original cast album. Featuring a score by Friedman and a book by two-time Tony nominee Timbers, the album for the 2013 Shakespeare in the Park production will be produced and released by Sh-K-Boom Records. No official release date has been announced.
The show's starry cast featured Patti Murin (Princess), Colin Donnell (Berowne), Daniel Breaker (King of Navarre), Kevin Del Aguila (Dull), Rebecca Naomi Jones (Jaquenetta), Bryce Pinkham (Longaville), Rachel Dratch (Holofernes), Andrew Durand (Boyet), Kimiko Glenn (Maria), Jeff Hiller (Nathaniel), Justin Levine (Moth), Lucas Near-Verbrugghe (Dumaine), Charlie Pollock (Costard), Caesar Samayoa (Don Armado), Maria Thayer (Rosaline) and Audrey Lynn Weston (Katherine).
Donnell took to Twitter on January 27 to announce the exciting news. He tweeted: "Guess what's getting a cast album!!! #loveslabourslost. In the studio now with the gang! @ShKBoom." Inspired by the Bard's famous play, Timbers and Friedman's Love's Labour's Lost takes place at a college campus. The King and his best friends decide at their five-year college reunion to swear off women, but when four cute, clever girls from their past show up, they’re forced to reconsider.
