Arlington: a World Premiere Recording

Broadway Records has announced that Arlington: World Premiere Recording will be released digitally and in stores on June 17, 2016. The album is currently available for pre-order at www.BroadwayRecords.com and Amazon.com

Grammy Award nominee Alexandra Silber (currently starring as Tzeitel in Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway) stars in this intimate musical, which focuses on a young Army wife trying to keep herself from a nervous breakdown as her husband fights overseas. Written by playwright/novelist Victor Lodato and award-winning composer Polly Pen (Goblin Market, Bed and Sofa), Arlington was originally produced Off-Broadway by the Vineyard Theatre in 2014, about which The New York Times declared "Sarah Jane is flawlessly portrayed by the gifted singer Alexandra Silber," while The New York Observer called the score "melodic and lovely." Now, Broadway Records brings Alexandra and pianist/actor Ben Moss into the studio to commit this stirring musical to disc. The album is produced by Michael Moritz, Jr. and Jeff Berger. This album is made in part by a generous donation from The Ted and Mary Jo Shen Charitable Gift Fund.

"Arlington is, without question, the most challenging and illuminating piece of theatre I have ever had the privilege to be a part of-from the controversial subject matter, to the arresting use of direct address, to the monumental vocal task. From the moment Jack Cummings III asked me to be a part of the original 20-minute version at Premieres in 2012, to the fully-realized Vineyard production in 2014 directed by Carolyn Cantor, it was a thrilling and terrifying challenge from beginning to end. That Sara Jane will now live forever through a recording is beyond my wildest dreams and expectations." -Alexandra Silber
