First Listen To 'Black-Hearted Woman' From STEPHEN WARD Cast Recording
A sneak peek at another new track from the upcoming cast recording for Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black and Christopher Hampton's new historically-based West End musical STEPHEN WARD is now available to hear prior to the album's release at the tail-end of this month.
Alexander Hanson as Stephen Ward and more are featured on the uniquely compelling new track previews being released this week, with the reggae-tinged "Black-Hearted Woman" arriving today.
Check out BroadwayWorld's coverage of the two previous song previews released from STEPHEN WARD this week, available here.
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.
