The Bricklin Cast Head to Studio to Record CD

by on July 9, 2010

Cast members of the new Canadian musical The Bricklin will take a day out of the rehearsal hall and head to the recording studio this weekend to record an original cast album.

 The Bricklin was commissioned by the Fredericton Playhouse and its premiere production is co-produced with Theatre New Brunswick. It is the first major collaboration between the two organizations since they became separate entities ten years ago.

The 1970’s inspired songs run the range from classic rock to pulsating disco, and tell the story of American promoter Malcolm Bricklin’s failed venture to produce his sexy namesake sports car in New Brunswick. With political intrigue, big dreams and bigger personalities involved in the story, this musical takes a lighthearted look at an iconic moment in Canadian history. 

Caleb Marshall, Artistic Producer at Theatre New Brunswick says, “This is the first time we’ve gone into the studio to make an album for a production, and it’s incredibly exciting. This is something that doesn’t typically happen with new works in Canada, and this is a real accomplishment, something to be proud of – something that makes the work lasting.”

“This music is fantastic, without a doubt,” says Fredericton Playhouse Executive Director Tim Yerxa. “Allen Cole and Paul Ledoux have created a great set of songs, and we know that audiences are going to want to take them home to listen to again and again.”

The cast will lay down vocal tracks this Saturday, which will be mixed and mastered by the experts at MasterTracks Recording Studio in Hanwell, NB. The album will be available exclusively at performances of The Brickiln.

“We jumped at the opportunity to work with The Bricklin cast and production team,” says Danny Crain of MasterTracks. “We are proud to be working on this historic project and with such an accomplished team of actors, musicians, and producers.”

The Bricklin will open in a World Premiere on Friday, July 30. Show times will be Wednesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturdays at 5pm & 9pm and Sundays at 5pm. Tickets are now on sale through the Fredericton Playhouse and the show’s website:

Limited tickets are also available for three preview nights – July 27, 28 and 29 at 8pm.
