The new Broadway-aimed musical “Angels” is set to release a studio cast recording, featuring two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (“Bandstand,” “Cinderella”), Tony nominee Robert Cuccioli (“Jekyll & Hyde”), Tony nominee Josh Young (“Amazing Grace,” “Jesus Christ Superstar”), and Alan H. Green (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “School of Rock”), according to Playbill.com.
“Angels” tells the story of “the ancient war between the Angels and Lucifer’s fallen minions,” according to press notes. Osnes stars as Sera, the Angel of Light. “Though she is gifted with the power to control light, she aspires to a more heroic role. Lucifer (Cuccioli) opposes Sera, causing chaos for the Angels and the humans they protect. Sera must find the courage to rise in victory over Lucifer and fulfill her purpose.”
Live performances of “Angels” are planned at venues worldwide, though specific performance dates and venues remain forthcoming.
The musical features music by Ken Lai, with book and lyrics by Lai and Marcus Cheong.
