On May 22, 2006 the cast of the Broadway musical Lestat recorded the cast album.

On May 23, 2006 Warner Brothers announced that the show would be closing.

Since then, no word from any of the responsible parties (Warner Brothers, Mercury Records, Elton John) has been heard.  Except that the release of the recording has been put on hold indefinetely.

Fans of the show feel the cast recording deserves to be released.  The cast worked very hard on the show and in making the recording.  They deserve to have their performances heard by the general public.  So in the summer of 2006, the fans of Lestat started a campaign for the release of the recording.
