I hear this production is the same version that played in London earlier this year. Anyone know much else about this? Great looking cast.

Their website says "Be the first to see it before it goes to Broadway."

Really now?
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

Westchester seems like a strange place for a pre Broadway run, no?

Element of surprise? No one expects something from Westchester to be Broadway-bound.

Lovely cast, and not to hang the black crepe, but it has only ever worked in concert thanks to Yeston's glorious choral passages. I do like seeing the word "intimate" in the marketing and I can imagine it might be persuasive in Westchester. On Broadway? Not so much. I wish them well with a tricky piece.

I saw a super intimate production of the show in Rhode Island last summer. Just piano, cello, and violin, I believe. Really beautiful. You really don't need these huge mind-blowing special effects. It can be very cleverly staged.
