New musical Austen's Pride will release a live cast recording of its one-night-only concert at Carnegie Hall, held last year.

Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by Lindsay Warren Baker and Amanda Jacobs with orchestrations by the latter, Austen's Pride puts a musical spin on the Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice. But, there's another twist: Jane Austen enters her own love story, going on a journey that shows her there's more to the story—and herself. 

The full recording will be released to all streaming platforms on June 28, in celebration of the one year anniversary of the concert. Singles from the record will be released each month leading up to the full release, starting with “Darcy’s Letter” February 16, featuring Mamie Parris, Olivia Hernandez, Andrew Samonsky, Jason Gotay, and the full company.

The ensemble included Matt Gibson, Cameron Loyal, Angel Lozada, and Lucas Thompson.

Previously released singles include “When I Fall in Love,” performed by Parris and Hernandez, and “Not Romantic,” performed by Parris and Cait Martin.

Reunited from the work's original production in Seattle in October 2019, Igor Goldin directed the 2023 concert, which featured musical direction by Matt Perri and choreography by Lisa Shriver. Perri also served as the evening's conductor of the 24-piece live orchestra.
