Porgy and Bess Confirmed!#0

Trevor Nunn's new production of Porgy and Bess will open at the Savoy Theatre from 9 November (previews 25 October). Apparently it features a 60-strong company, and the music has been adapted by the ever-busy Gareth Valentine!

Looks like it could be something different with all the musicals opening this year... I make it 21 I think???

(Sinatra, Whistle Down the Wind, Musical of Musicals, Movin' Out, Mack and Mabel, Footloose, Sunday in the Park with George, Avenue Q, Show Boat, Evita, Rocky Horror Show, The Boyfriend, Daddy Cool, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, Wicked, Cabaret, Spamalot, Sound of Music, Dirty Dancing, Porgy and Bess, Caroline or Change... and then Over Here and Over the Rainbow still to confirm and LotR and On the Town confirmed to 2007.. CRAZY!

Am really looking forward to this, a friend of mine did a workshop of this some weeks and he had an amazing time, hope he will be in that show!


p.s. and about DD west end artist - you just find out NOW that it is not a musical? Didn't read about it on the internet? It is the film onstage! I got to see it in Hamburg a month ago and I had a great time, but if anyone expects a musical, you will be disappointed.
