Where would musicals, a vital part of theater in New York, be without cast albums to preserve their scores for posterity? And where would cast albums be today without Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records? Founded in 2000 by Kurt Deutsch and his wife, Broadway leading lady Sherie Rene Scott, the company has grown into the country’s leading source of theater music, with releases ranging from major hits (like The Book of Mormon and In the Heights) to Off Broadway events (like Carrie and the soon-to-be-released Giant)—not to mention sets by top Broadway singers like Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole. The Broadway tradition is in good hands with Sh-K-Boom keeping score.
