Musical of ‘Rebecca’ heading to Broadway
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The Gothic novel “Rebecca” that became a classic film by Alfred Hitchcock is coming to Broadway as a musical.
Producers said Tuesday that the new show will have an original book and lyrics by Michael Kunze as well as music by Sylvester Levay. It will be co-directed by Michael Blakemore and Francesca Zambello.
Based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier, the story is about a wealthy Englishman, his new wife and a manipulative housekeeper _ all haunted by the hero’s dead first wife, Rebecca.
Though no castmembers were announced, Sierra Boggess, who is currently starring in “Master Class,” is in negotiations to play the second wife. Gracelia Daniele is in talks to do the choreography.
Previews will begin March 27, 2012.
