Sorry if this is a stupid question but is the Japanese Cast Recording in Japanese? Or English?

Japanese! I imagine the reason the Japanese and German productions got one and the English production didn't is because we already had the OBC in our language (although that doesn't explain why the Dutch production never got one, I guess they just assumed they all spoke German or English!)

Thanks :) I did want one in English that I liked! They could do a London cast one and claim that English English is different to American English....

The Dutch production didn't get one because Stage Entertainment couldn't get the rights as far as I know... that's what I heard anyway. Pretty sad seeing as the songs are beautiful in Dutch. The German cast recording's my favourite though, and I'd still like a London cast recording. :P

The time for a London recording has long gone - if they were going to do it, they would have done it in 2006 when the show opened.

Yeah, the only possiibilties now would be a tour or 10th anniversary one! Both of which are still pretty unlikely, but we can hope I guess!
