Photo Flash: 'Whistle Down the Wind' Opens at 5th Ave
Andrew Lloyd Webber's Whistle Down the Wind, featuring 15 local kids in the children's ensemble, opens tonight November 15 and runs through December 2 at The 5th Avenue Theatre.
Featuring award-winning songs including the Boyzone smash hit "No Matter What," Whistle Down the Wind is "a uplifting musical about a young Louisiana girl who finds a mysterious stranger and hides him from the townspeople, who are determined to find the escaped felon," explain press notes. The US premiere production partners renowned rock lyricist Jim Steinman (Meatloaf's classic album "Bat Out of Hell," Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart") and Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats, Evita, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) to create a score inspired by the sounds of the American South – blues, gospel, country and rock 'n' roll.
