    The hilarious film Elf has been translated to a smash Broadway musical, and now, the cast recording of the show will be released. ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with the Broadway musical Elf: The Broadway Musical for the exclusive premiere of this video, which takes us behind-the-scenes of the recording process, which is not easy or simple! The cast pulls back the curtain and shares some of the details of cast recordings.

    Essentially, cast recordings are like a time capsule of another piece of art!

    In this clip, the cast members sit down and talk about the significance of the musical and how when they were recording, they had to come up with a method of using their voices to help encapsulate what usually happens while on stage at the same time, such as the emotion and physical movements! Those somehow have to be translated to the recorded portion.

    Cast albums are also recorded it all in one day, since that's how they do things on Broadway.

    See what we mean about cast recordings being anything but easy? But they are so much fun!

    Watch. Enjoy. Learn.



    Will you go see Elf on Broadway?
