Cinderella - 2020 Original London Cast

Shouldn't this be called a Concept Cast instead of the Original London Cast?

No. It's being released before the production begins in London. The London production has been on deck to begin since last year, cast and crew set, and theatre picked out. The recording is an early treat.

I think martijnj is referring to the fact that while many of the singers on the album are in the original London cast, there are a few principals (at least) who were only ever hired to do the album. Additionally it’s been released to coincide with the previews in London, but it’s not necessarily associated with the production. It was finished way before rehearsals even began, I believe.

Exactly and from what I hear some of the songs on the album are not in the show anymore or have been reworked. So this is a concept album and not a cast album.
