Documentary Now! Original Cast Album: Co-Op


Taking on both Pennebaker and Sondheim, “Original Cast Album: Co-Op” chronicles the all-night recording of a cast album for the fictional musical Co-Op. Taran Killam, John Mulaney, and James Urbaniak play producers overseeing the marathon session, with a cast determined to do right by a musical about tenement housing. The performers have their endurance tested by the mounting hours, alongside the announcement that Co-Op has been canceled. Nonetheless, the show must go on! The recording of the album, that is—Co-Op is definitely over.
