The compilation album will feature songs from 'Wicked,' 'Phantom of the Opera,' 'Rent,' and more.
After 58 rounds of NOW That’s What I Call Music!, theater is finally getting its due. NOW That’s What I Call Broadway! is slated for release on Friday, April 29.
Like its predecessors, the 18-track album is a compilation album. This edition will include original cast recordings of some of the Great White Way’s biggest hits of the last 40 years, including “Defying Gravity” from Wicked performed by Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth and Michael Crawford doing “The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera.
It doesn’t, however, feature any tracks from Broadway’s current buzzy hit, Hamilton. You’ll probably have to wait for a future edition for that one, though the Hamilton Mixtape is due out this fall.
