Caroline, or Change has announced a brand new Broadway cast recording.
The new Broadway revival from the Roundabout Theatre Company is based on the 2017 Chichester revival which ran in the West End between 2018 and 2019.
Sharon D Clarke, who won an Olivier Award for her role in the UK production, reprises her title role of Caroline Thibodeaux.

A new cast recording is set for release by BroadwayRecords to download and stream from 17 December 2021 with a double-disc CD release due a little later. You can pre-order the CD online here.
Set in 1960s Louisiana, the musical tells the story of a Black woman working as a maid for a Jewish family as the civil rights movement transforms America.
Alongside Clarke, the cast features Gabriel Amoroso (Noah Gellman), Alexander Bello (Jackie Thibodeaux), John Cariani (Stuart Gellman), Joy Hermalyn (Grandma Gellman), Arica Jackson (The Washing Machine), Tamika Lawrence (Dotty Moffett), Caissie Levy (Rose Stopnick Gellman), Adam Makké (Noah Gellman), Kevin S. McAllister (The Dryer, The Bus), Harper Miles (Radio 3), N’Kenge (The Moon), Nya (Radio 2), Richard Alexander Phillips (Alternate for Jackie Thibodeaux and Joe Thibodeaux), Jayden Theophile (Joe Thibodeaux), Nasia Thomas (Radio 1), Jaden Myles Waldman (Noah Gellman), Samantha Williams (Emmie Thibodeaux), Stuart Zagnit (Grandpa Gellman) and Chip Zien (Mr. Stopnick).
The Broadway production is currently playing a limited season through to 9 January 2022 at Studio 54 on Broadway.
Roundabout Artistic Director and CEO Todd Haimes said: “Producing Caroline, or Change and bringing its star, Sharon D Clarke, to Broadway have been extraordinarily satisfying, especially in light of the struggles of the past two years.
“Being able to preserve it for all time–as our 25th cast album and the premiere recording for the Roundabout Records imprint with Broadway Records–means the world to everyone who worked so hard to get it here. I’m looking forward to many more collaborations with Van and his team.””
