Multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban releases new album, 'Stages' - a collection of some of the greatest musical theatre songs of all time!
"Nothing has inspired me more in my life than the energy that is shared in a theatre when great songs and great art are on the stage," he says. "I wanted this album to pay tribute to those inspirations and memories."
Recorded in Los Angeles and London's Abbey Road (with a 75-piece orchestra), 'Stages' features songs from Les Misérables, Carousel, A Chorus Line, Phantom of the Opera, The Wizard of Oz and others.
