Kander & Ebb's Curtains gets European premiere at LandorDate: 28 May 2012
Kander and Ebb's 2007 musical Curtains will receive its European professional premiere at the Landor Theatre this summer.
Initially based on the book and concept by Peter Stone, the book was rewritten by Rupert Holmes who also contributed additional lyrics to the original songs. The lyrics are by Fred Ebb and music by John Kander, whose other musicals include Cabaret and Chicago.
With Robert McWhir as director, Iain Vince Gatt as musical supervisor and Robbie O’Reilly as choreographer, Curtains reunites the creative team behind I Love You Because, which won the Whatsonstage.com Best Off West-End Production Award. The cast and further creative team have yet to be announced.
Curtains opened on Broadway in 2006 to great success. The musical was nominated for 8 Tony Awards and 9 Drama Desk Awards, winning Outstanding Book of a Musical.
The musical will run at the Landor Theatre from 25 July to 1 September, 2012. Casting is still to be announced.
