Rehearsal Day #2 For Andrew Lloyd Webber's STEPHEN WARD
The second day of rehearsals for the highly anticipated Andrew Lloyd Webber, Christopher Hampton and Don Black West End musical STEPHEN WARD was marked with a new social media image arriving to christen the occasion, showcasing another glimpse into rehearsals for the politically-inclined, period-set musical.
In the new image, we can glean a cursory look at the cover of the script for the show - dated October 19 - fronting an appropriately crimson binder.

The official synopsis for STEPHEN WARD is as follows: "STEPHEN WARD deals with the victim of the Profumo Affair - not, as is widely supposed, John Profumo himself, the disgraced Minister for War, nor even the fatally wounded Conservative government of Harold Macmillan, but the society osteopath whose private libertarian experiments blew up in his own and everyone else's face. In a trial as emblematic to the twentieth century as Oscar Wilde's was to the nineteenth - from which he was the only protagonist to emerge with some dignity and honour. Ward became the targeted scapegoat of a furiously self-righteous Establishment. By no means a hero, he was a reluctant martyr, thanks to an unholy alliance between Press and police of a kind we can all too readily recognise today; inadvertently, he was the hinge between two worlds and the harbinger of a revolution in manners, music and morals when the ordered, stuffy, respectful universe of the fifties gave way to the classless, truculent, unstoppable sixties."
STEPHEN WARD was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Christopher Hampton and Don Black, beginning previews in the West End on December 3. For more information, check out a previous article on STEPHEN WARD here.
