The official soundtrack of the highly successful MacGyver Musical is set for release on January 27, 2023 with pre-orders available from Jan 6th.
The album features all the original songs from the musical with appearances from Broadway star and Tony-nominated Taylor Louderman of Bring it On, Kinky Boots, and Mean Girls, along with Tony, Emmy, and Grammy nominee Brandon Victor Dixon from The Color Purple, Motown: The Musical and Hamilton, plus a special guest appearance from Tristin Mays who played MacGyver’s hacker sidekick, Riley Davis, in the 2016 reboot series, singing a solo ‘Too Much Future’.
Produced by original series creator, Lee Zlotoff, the musical kicked off in February 2022 (after being held up for 2 years due to Covid) with a five-week run at the prestigious Stages Theater in Houston, Texas where it received rave reviews, standing ovations, and sell-out crowds for almost every performance.
Set in 1989 in East Berlin, with all original music ranging from 80s pop to Broadway ballads and hard punk rock and roll, the show tells the story of how MacGyver, with the help of a punk rock band, foils the invasion of West Berlin and brings down the infamous Berlin Wall to reunite the divided country.
Like the musical itself, where MacGyver is played by a different audience member each night, the role of MacGyver on the album was selected by a nationwide competition where fans sent in videos of themselves singing which were made available for the world to watch and vote on through various rounds until an eventual winner was found. They were then flown to New York to record the required songs for the album.
