Directing this premiere musical production is Broadway actor and director, Hunter Foster, who returns to the Goodspeed to bring to life this exciting new take on the classic tale.

In a statement from producers Fane Productions, James Albrecht said: 'Very sadly, only a week and a half after announcing our September 20th concert with Michel Legrand and the Ronnie Scotts Jazz Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall, we learned of his passing. It is no more than four months since Michel's unforgettable concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, also at the Royal Festival Hall, co-produced by Fane Productions and Ronnie Scott's. Aged 86, and certainly physically and vocally a little frail, Michel nonetheless conducted the 68-piece orchestra and rhythm section with total assurance, and his genius at the piano was as evident as ever. In a concert, billed as 'Michel Legrand: 60 years of Music and Movies', we were taken on a magical and nostalgic journey through some of the 20th century's most memorable film scores whilst clips from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, The Thomas Crown Affair, Summer of 42, Yentil and many more screened above the orchestra. The evening had a tangible sense of occasion, even more so in retrospect now that we know it was to be Michel's last appearance in the UK. What a privilege to have been there.'

New York based trumpeter and composer Glenn Makos' newest release - 'The Michel Legrand Project' - with his quartet reimagines the music of Michel Legrand as Legrand celebrates his 85th birthday in 2017. The genesis of the project was the result of a kitchen renovation. 'With all of the construction noise in my house, I had a difficult time writing for seventeen people what was then my current project composing for big band. I've always admired Legrand's music and one morning last summer, I woke up and heard his music in my head. It was a quartet, ironically, without a piano, sort of like Ornette meets Legrand.'
