Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project by The Broadway Lullaby Project

Product Description: Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project is both a timeless benefit effort and a uniquely compelling multimedia experience. The ambitious project—which incorporates a 2-CD, 26-song set; a lavishly illustrated hardcover book of 17 songs from the album; a corresponding e-book encompassing the entire collection; and a documentary film and web series —gathers many of contemporary musical theatre’s greatest composers and vocalists, as well as illustrators, all of whom have donated their talent to deliver an emotionally affecting set of new lullabies, some written specifically for this project.

This collection puts a fresh spin on the classic lullaby form, creating a warmly expressive song cycle that will touch listeners of all ages, while raising funds for respected breast cancer charities The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Young Survival Coalition. The book, available separately, features 17 songs from the album with the lyrics illustrated by some of America’s most esteemed theatrical designers and children’s book illustrators, each offering a memorable visual interpretation of a song from the CD bound in the book. The e-book includes illustrations for all 26 songs.

Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project’s roster of world-class vocalists features some of Broadway’s most respected and popular performers and friends, including Anastasia Barzee, Stephanie Bast, Michael Cerveris, Walter Charles, Victoria Clark, Jed Cohen, Janet Dacal, Kate Dawson, Raul Esparza, Sutton Foster, Marva Hicks, Dana Ivey, Brian d’Arcy James, Nikki M. James, Luke Kolbe Mannikus, Marc Kudisch, Judy Kuhn, Rebecca Luker, 2012 Lead Actress in a Musical Tony Award Winner Audra McDonald, Donna Murphy, Christiane Noll, Kelli O’Hara, Laura Osnes, Anika Noni Rose, Caesar Samayoa, Will Swenson, and Vanessa Williams.
