Highlights include Billy Porter and the cast of Kinky Boots singing “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”; the cast of A Bronx Tale performing “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”; Meghan Toohey (Sara Bareilles' long-time guitarist) offering a 1960s-style original song “Wonder What You Got for Me” featuring Anastacia McCleskey and the rest of the company and band from Waitress; and Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens performing their original carol, “All Those Christmas Cliches,” along with the cast of Anastasia.

“These are all new, original recordings, creatively arranged and performed by the incredibly talented performers and musicians from the 2017 Broadway season,” explains producer Lynn Pinto, who collaborated with engineer Andros Rodriguez on the album, in a statement. "We record the musicians and singers in layers, utilizing isolation booths for a higher quality recording. It gives the album a unique sound from most cast albums and allows us to showcase some of the best voices and instrumentalists in the world.”
