Broadway Records today announced that Who’s Your Baghdaddy, or How I Started the Iraq War (Original Cast Recording) will be released digitally and in stores on Friday, September 28, 2018. The album is currently available for pre-order at www.BroadwayRecords.com.
Inspired by a true story, Who's Your Baghdaddy, or How I Started the Iraq War is a new musical comedy The New York Times calls “an important, cunning rock solid musical comedy with a terrible title”. Dark, boisterous and irreverent, the story follows a handful of mid-level spies in a support group for people who started the Iraq War, whose vanity and office politics contributed to the worst intelligence blunder in modern history.
Starring Tony Award nominee Ethan Slater (SpongeBob SquarePants), Brennan Caldwell (NBC's "The Sing-Off"), Jason Collins (National Tour: Annie), Brandon Espinoza (Broadway: Tuck Everlasting, Gypsy), Joe Joseph (Regional: Kiss of the Spiderwoman), Claire Neumann (NYC: Triassic Parq), and Larisa Oleynik ("Mad Men"), Who’s Your Baghdaddy is written by Marshall Pailet and A.D. Penedo, with musical direction by Rona Siddiqui and orchestrations by Charlie Rosen. The cast recording is produced by Matthias Winter.
