Photo Flash: Inside THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME Sitzprobe at La Jolla Playhouse!
The U.S. premiere of The Hunchback of Notre Dame at La Jolla Playhouse, featuring a score by the multiple Academy, Grammy and Tony Award-winning team of composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz , book by Peter Parnell and direction by Scott Schwartz, begins performances tomorrow, October 26 in the Playhouse's Mandell Weiss Theatre. Just yesterday, the cast gathered for the sitzprobe - check out a photo, posted by Erik Liberman on Twitter, below!
Featuring a lush, emotionally rich score, performed by a top-notch cast led by Michael Arden, Patrick Page, Ciara Renee, Andrew Samonsky and Liberman and featuring local choir Sacra/Profana as the on-stage chorus -- this new production from acclaimed director Schwartz highlights the music's orchestral power and choral beauty in an intimate retelling of the famous love story. Librettist Parnell crafts a bold, highly-theatrical take on the moving tale of the scorned bell-ringer Quasimodo, the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda and the dashing Captain Phoebus in 15th century Paris.
