The site says there's a smaller orchestra, but the recording sounds like it's larger (I can hear two reed parts at the same time, for example). I'm looking to do the show with a smaller orchestra, but I'm not sure if that's actually being licensed.

There are two cast recordings, each with two different but similar orchestrations/instrumentation. The Original Broadway cast recording features 20 musicians, making it sound large (and it has Jason Robert Brown himself on piano). The 2007 Donmar Warehouse production is the one with the smaller orchestrations.
