First of all, I’ve to confess that I don’t have any contacts on the music, movie or video industry and I don’t sell CDs or DVDs. I’m just a regular guy who love musicals and decided to build a website about the subject.

Here, you can find information regarding future CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray releases regarding stage and movie musicals.

Please keep in mind that many of these future releases may not be released as soon as planned, and a few of those will probably be postponed (some indefinitely).
