Lincoln Center Theater announced that our production of THE GARDENS OF ANUNICIA, with book, music, and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa, directed and co-choreographed by Graciela Daniele, will record an original cast album today, Monday, December 4, to be released in 2024. Released by Ghostlight Records, the album is produced by Lawrence Manchester and Michael John LaChiusa.

THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA marks the fourth collaboration between Michael John LaChiusa and Graciela Daniele at Lincoln Center Theater to receive an original cast recording following Hello Again (1994), Marie Christine (1999), and Bernarda Alba (2006).  The New York Times calls the show, “A sweet reverie of a musical,” while the Wall Street Journal says, “Mr. LaChiusa’s score, its subtle harmonies and often clever lyrics, is one of his finest” and TheaterMania declares, “It’s awfully refreshing to hear smart, simple music like this. Michael John LaChiusa’s melodies in this heartwarming musical are so infectious that they make you want to get up and dance!” 

THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA began previews Thursday, October 19 and opened on Monday, November 20. Now playing through December 31, 2023, at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
