Despite the fact that The O.C. is known for its many signature musical moments, there’s no song more closely associated to the hit Fox show than Phantom Planet’s “California.” Not only was it the O.C. theme, but three different versions of it aired during the show’s four-season run.
So naturally, the cast of The Unauthorized O.C. Musical — coming to Los Angeles for one night on Sunday —had to put their own spin on the song. To give fans a sneak peek of what to expect at the show, the cast has released their version of “California,” and it’s magical.
Singing on the track is Tilky Jones (Ryan Atwood), Molly McCook (Marissa Cooper), Brendan Robinson (Seth Cohen), Greer Grammer (Summer Roberts), Drew Seeley (Luke Ward), and Betty Who (Holly Fischer).
