Ghostlight Records will record a cast album of MCC Theater's Off-Broadway musical Alice By Heart, which was recently extended through April 7. The album is produced by composer Duncan Sheik and Kurt Deutsch, with Craig Balsam and Cody Lassen serving as executive producers.
Alice By Heart features music by Sheik and lyrics by Steven Sater, who also co-wrote the book with director Jessie Nelson. Choreography is by Rick and Jeff Kuperman.
The original cast features Molly Gordon as Alice and Colton Ryan as Alfred/The White Rabbit, along with Kim Blanck, Mia DiLena, Zachary Downer, Noah Galvin, Zachary Infante, Andrew Kober, Grace McLean, Nkeki Obi-Melekwe, Catherine Ricafort, Heath Saunders, and Wesley Taylor.
The show adapts Lewis Carroll’s famed fantasy into a London-set tale against the backdrop of World War II, as Alice and her friend Alfred journey down a rabbit hole to find love, loss, and the courage to move forward despite harsh circumstances.
After kicking off previews January 30, the production officially opened February 26. The MCC Theater production plays the company’s new uptown venue, The Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space.
