Kid Victory, the new musical by John Kander and Greg Pierce playing off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre, will release an original cast album on Broadway Records. The cast will record the album on March 20 with plans for a September release.
Directed by Liesl Tommy and featuring a book and lyrics by Pierce, music by Kander and a story by Kander and Pierce, Kid Victory opened on February 22 at the Vineyard Theatre, where it is scheduled to play through March 19.
