This classic story gets a fresh new take for 2020. An original book by the Emmy Award-nominated screenwriter Emerald Fennell, who is best known for leading the script of season two of BBC's Killing Eve, as well as appearing on screen in Netflix's The Crown, playing Camilla. Lloyd Webber has written the new score which has lyrics by David Zippel. It will be the second time the English composer has partnered with American lyricist - whose other musical work includes City of Angels and Disney's Hercules - since The Woman in White in 2004.
The musical is directed by Laurence Connor with choreography by JoAnn Hunter, reuniting the creatives after working together on Lloyd Webber's musicals School of Rock and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Connor's other musical work includes Chess and Miss Saigon in the West End.
