It appears the album, from PS Classics/Image Entertainment, is available at Best Buy, CD Universe, Amazon, Looney Tunes, and Tower Records with CD Universe offering the best price [$12.64] currently. CD ships "officially" on 4.21.09, but should be available at GL shows from now on. They had copies for sale last night at The Colonial. Note that Brendan mentioned last night that the CD was going up on iTunes as well, in an "exclusive" download sale. No mention of price for the iTunes version.
The PS classics site: http://www.psclassics.com/new.html had this to say of the new album and it's release:
As reported yesterday at Playbill.com, we’re proud to be releasing the premiere recording of SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES, from the pop trio GrooveLily. Reuniting the creators of the acclaimed off-Broadway musical STRIKING 12 — Tony Award-winning librettist Rachel Sheinkin (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and GrooveLily's own Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda — SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES received its world premiere in Los Angeles on March 31, 2007, in a co-production between Deaf West Theatre and Center Theatre Group, and received the 2007 Theatre LA Ovation Award for Best Musical. (The multi-talented Brendan also won for Best Musical Direction.)
Deaf West described the original production as follows: "After her centuries long snooze, Beauty wakes to finds herself far from her fairy tale kingdom in a contemporary sleep-disorder center, where all the princes seem to have disappeared. The result is a wild theatrical journey entwined in these two parallel worlds, as Beauty discovers the real costs of flirting with danger, the joy of living and the meaning of true love." The Deaf West production featured a company of both deaf and hearing actors, including Milburn and Vigoda, who sang, acted, signed and played instruments onstage. The new studio recording — in the tradition of the group's popular STRIKING 12 — features Milburn and Vigoda, along with third GrooveLily band member Gene Lewin, playing and singing all the roles. We’re looking to have the CD in stores on April 21st, but will be offering an exclusive pre-release at our website and at iTunes on March 31st. SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES is as inventive and funny and hypnotic as anything GrooveLily's done, and Rachel's wit is everywhere apparent. It's a true tour-de-force.
So, you have a choice: Wait for 4.21.09 or step up on 3.31.09, this Tuesday and order SBW from iTunes for immediate download or order from the PS Classics site. Of course, you can always show up at a GL show before then and pick up the CD in person, get it autographed by the band, and pop it right into your car's CD player. Whatever you choose, you will not be disappointed.
