The Tony Awards and Broadway Records have announced the first-ever Tony Award® Season compilation album! This collector's item is now available on iTunes and Amazon, and in stores including Target, Barnes and Noble, and others.
We invited each of the Tony-nominated musicals, along with all of the other 2016-2017 Tony Season musicals, to contribute a song to the album. Earlier this spring several of the shows offered fans a vote in selecting the included track, and the songs chosen through the fans' voting are included on the album.

1. Deep Beneath the City/Not There Yet (In Transit)
2. Times Are Hard For Dreamers (Amélie)
3. The Baseball Game (Falsettos)
4. With One Look (Sunset Boulevard)
5. In a World Like This (A Bronx Tale)
6. Sincerely, Me (Dear Evan Hansen)
7. Shaking the Blues Away (Holiday Inn)
8. It Must Be Believed to Be Seen (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
9. Letters (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812)
10. The Last Night of the World (Miss Saigon)
11. Me and the Sky (Come From Away)
12. Nobody (Bandstand)
13. Journey to the Past (Anastasia)
14. Memory (Cats)
15. Seeing You (Groundhog Day)
“We are thrilled to be unveiling this special new compilation album in a season containing more new musicals than any other season in over 35 years,” said Van Dean, President of Broadway Records. We believe this album will be the start of an annual series that will be cherished by the fans as a way to discover all of the incredible new musicals and revivals that Broadway has to offer each season.”
“It is so exciting to be able to bring together the music that celebrates an incredible season on Broadway!,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President The Broadway League and Heather Hitchens, President the American Theatre Wing, in a statement. “And to be able to share that celebration with theatre fans around the world is really something special.”
The album is available on CD and digitally at most major music retailers including iTunes. The CD is also available via Broadway Records and the Tony Awards Store, as well as via Amazon.com, Target, and Barnes and Noble. A portion of the proceeds from the album will go to the American Theatre Wing and Broadway League’s charitable initiatives.
The cover art features a specially commissioned Tony season illustration by Justin “Squigs” Robertson. The first 1,000 people to buy the album at BroadwayRecords.com and TonyAwardsStore.com will receive a free limited-edition “Lights of Broadway” Tony Nominees 2017 showcard with their purchase. The packaging includes an essay by noted musical theatre historian Jennifer Ashley Tepper, as well as details about each show.
