Listen to our brand new digital musical #ZoologicalSociety now!
We’re thrilled to have released a concept album for a brand new digital musical, #ZoologicalSociety. Written by multi-award-winners Vikki Stone and Katie Mulgrew, you can stream it now for FREE from all leading streaming services.
Please note, this album contains frequent strong language and adult themes.
Definitely for grown-ups only, this outrageous new musical comedy reveals the innermost thoughts of a troupe of loveable zoo animals, from gossiping giraffes and depressed monkeys to a penguin nervous about becoming a single mother and two pandas feeling the pressure to procreate.
Clever, funny and beautifully written- this album is just a joy. I don’t think there’s ever been a time when I’ve needed a concept album more. With things being uncertain in the world of theatre right now, #ZoologicalSociety is a much-needed tonic. – Broadway World
