Broadway Records created the inaugural Tony Season CD featuring musicals of the 2016-2017 Tony season. All shows opting to participate would have a track on the compilation and would be featured in the liner notes. Van Dean approached me as the season was wrapping up and asked me to join the team and create the cover and interior illustrations featuring the participating shows. Being a new project involving the cooperation of multiple production organizations and record companies, the ebb and flow of content was a bit of a roller coaster ride. We rode it right to the deadline, and I was grateful to designer Robbie Rozelle for his collaboration.
I was also happy that a synergistic relationship with The Lights of Broadway was welcomed by Van and team. I redesigned the cover composition to create a limited edition card, made available to the first 1,000 folks purchasing a physical copy of the CD.
