Based on the well known classic Charles Dickens novel, “A Tale of Two Cities” is a sweeping new musical epic that recounts one of the most electrifying love stories ever told, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. It is a fast-moving musical switching between Paris and London, which explores injustice, vengeance and the redemptive power of love.
Broadway composer and lyricist Jill Santoriello has written the show’s book, music and lyrics. She has distilled the Dickens novel with its myriad of beloved characters into an exciting theatrical experience, while remaining true to the original. “A Tale of Two Cities” has a fabulous score with soaring ballads, rousing anthems, wonderful choruses and grand, sweeping melodies that imprint themselves on the memory and which recall other humanity-rich musical epics such as “Les Misérables”, “Phantom of the Opera” and “Miss Saigon”.
“A Tale of Two Cities” will be directed by Fred Wharton, with musical direction by Steven Hood and choreography by Janet Dixon.
It will be staged at the GALA Theatre, Durham from Tuesday 8th – Saturday 12th April 2014, evening performances 7:15pm and Wednesday & Saturday matinees 2:15pm.
We all hope that you will want to join us as we prepare to stage "A Tale of Two Cities”, our next big adventure, so that you can say: “"It was a far, far better thing I did than I have ever done...”
