Glensheen debuted at the History Theatre in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2015. The show - now in it's first tour around the state of Minnesota - continues to sell out and garner rave reviews.
PRODUCTION of The Cast Album
The stellar production, mixing and mastering of the Glensheen album was done at Jason Orris' beautiful studio The Terrarium in Minneapolis, MN.
"I loved working on this! Thank you for bringing this to the Terrarium."
Winner of the Ivey Overall Excellence award in 2016, Glensheen, the smash musical by composer/librettist Chan Poling and bookwriter Jeffrey Hatcher, with musical arrangements by Robert Elhai, is based on the story of the Congden Murders and Trials of 1977.
Originally workshopped and produced in 2015 by Saint Paul's History Theatre under the direction of Ron Peluso, it continues to delight sold-out crowds.
