ORIGINAL CAST RECORDS
From the composer of "The Price of Freedom" and "Twelve Princesses" comes an exciting new musical about Blackbeard, America`s most notorious pirate. The show features a great plot, fascinating characters and perhaps the most melodic and memorable score in recent Broadway history. This concept album features the first workshop cast of "Blackbeard," an amazing group of talent down to the last ensemble member.
Starring Tyler Maxson as Blackbeard, Linsey Maxson as Mary, Jordan Bluth as Lt. Maynard, Elisabeth Coleman as Anne, Mark Kleinman as Gov. Johnson, Charisma Miller as Georgette and Jere Van Patten as Stede Bonnet.
The story surrounds Blackbeard`s most brazen act: the May 1718 blockade of Charleston Harbor. In the process, a ship full of wealthy passengers is taken hostage and among them, newlyweds Miss Anne Johnson, daughter of the colonial governor and her husband, Lt. Robert Maynard of the Royal Navy. Meanwhile, despite warnings of bad luck, Blackbeard has invited aboard his latest pursuit, a woman named Mary, who challenges his fearsome facade and sets in motion events that will change everything.
