Kyle Taylor Parker: Broadway Soul, Vol. 2 [CD]
Following up his highly successful debut album “Broadway Soul, Vol. 1” (hailed by Talkin’ Broadway as “a formidable and fascinating dissection and resurrection”), Kyle Taylor Parker returns with a new collection of Broadway classics reimagined. Created as a full musical, and featuring Jackie Cox (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Shoshana Bean (Waitress), Blaine Alden Krauss (Hamilton) and Natalie Joy Johnson (Kinky Boots), the album features an eclectic array of songs from musicals as diverse as Hedwig and the Angry Inch, South Pacific, A Chorus Line, The Wiz, Follies, The Music Man and more, all filtered through the sound of a queer artist of color. “Broadway Soul, Vol. 2” is produced, arranged and orchestrated by Sonny Paladino, and co-produced by Rich Mercurio.
