The album for James Lapine’s Broadway musical “Flying Over Sunset” is now available on all streaming platforms. The recording features the original cast performing all 22 tracks from the Lincoln Center musical which ran from Dec. 13, 2021 to Jan. 16 of this year.
“Flying Over Sunset” is a fictional story about the lives of Aldous Huxley (Harry Hadden-Paton), Clare Boothe Luce (Carmen Cusack), and Cary Grant (Tony Yazbeck) who decide to take LSD together and confront the mysteries of their lives and their world.
It features a critically acclaimed production crew. Lapine, who also wrote the book, is a Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner. The album is scored by Tony, GRAMMY, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tom Kitt.
“Flying Over Sunset” was produced by GRAMMY-nominee Scott M. Riesett (Schmigadoon!, Ain’t Too Proud, The Prom). Recorded in New York, the album was co-produced by Tony Award nominee Michael Korie and Lapine and was executive produced by Scott Farthing and Adam Siegel.
Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal says of “Flying Over Sunset”: “An irresistible trip worth taking, brought off with supreme flair, I’d gladly see it again right away!”
As of today, only the digital version of the album is available. A hard copy is scheduled to be released on April 8.
