THE LANDING is the first collaboration between legendary theatre composer John Kander (CHICAGO, CABARET, THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS) and Greg Pierce (SLOW GIRL, THE WIND-UP BIRD CHRONICLE), and kicks off The Vineyard's 2013-14 season. Mr. Kander and Mr. Pierce are also at work on another new musical, KID VICTORY.
THE LANDING also marks John Kander's first full new theatre collaboration with another writer since the passing of his long-time collaborator Fred Ebb in 2004. Kander and Ebb's latest collaboration THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS - which had its world-premiere at The Vineyard in 2010 prior to its transfer to Broadway - will have its London debut this fall, simultaneous with the world-premiere of THE LANDING at The Vineyard.
Walter Bobbie (CHICAGO, VENUS IN FUR) directs THE LANDING. Josh Rhodes (Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA, FIRST DATE) is choreographer. Orchestrations are by Larry Hochman, David Loud serves as musical director and Paul Masse is conductor.
Featured in the cast of THE LANDING are Tony and Emmy Award-winner David Hyde Pierce (CURTAINS, VANYA AND SONYA AND MASHA AND SPIKE, "Frasier"), Julia Murney (Andrew Lippa's THE WILD PARTY, WICKED), Paul Anthony Stewart (THE PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF) and Frankie Seratch (A TIME TO SHINE/TEEN CABARET).
THE LANDING is a beautiful and haunting new musical comprised of three thematically-connected tales of desire, love and loss.
