A London performance of Stephen Schwartz’s The Prince of Egypt musical has been captured on film for a future broadcast. Universal Pictures Content Group is running the project with Brett Sullivan directing filming and Dione Orrom producing. More release details, including a platform and date, will be announced later.
“The new stage musical version of DreamWorks’ The Prince of Egypt will make its London premiere next year, with a West End production set to begin previews Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at the Dominion Theatre. The 32-week limited engagement will officially open Tuesday, February 25.
The production is directed by Scott Schwartz (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and choreographed by Sean Cheesman (So You Think You Can Dance).”
“The creative team features musical score and lyrics come from Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin), with book by Philip LaZebnik (Pocahontas, Mulan). Scott Schwartz directs the debut production, and Sean Cheesman choreographs.
A soaring celebration of the human spirit, The Prince of Egypt features a dazzling, multi-ethnic cast in one of the greatest stories ever told: the saga of Moses and Ramses, his Pharaoh brother, and the indomitable people who changed them both forever.”
