News   Legacy Falls, a New Musical About a Fictional American Soap, to Premiere at London's New Players Theatre Legacy Falls, a new musical about a fictional American daytime soap opera, is to premiere at London's New Players Theatre. It will begin performances Oct. 27, prior to an official opening Oct.29, for a run through Nov. 20.

Written and composed by James Burn, a former assistant musical director on Disney's The Lion King at the Mogador Theatre in Paris, and directed and choreographed by former performer turned film director Ian Poitier, the show was previously staged in Bermuda in 2003. According to press materials, the show exposes the bitchiness and back-stabbing behind the scenes and in front of the camera on a fictional American daytime soap opera, from (in Poitier's words) "the romances and the hair-pulling cat-fights...the hirings and firings…the bikinis and sex scandals…the tantrums, the deaths...and a slightly unrealistic earthquake…"

The cast includes Amy Anzel, Aimie Atkinson, Ezra Axelrod, Rosalind Blessed, Davis Brooks, Joanne Heywood, Tara Hugo, Mark Inscoe, Tim Oxbrow, Stephen von Screiber, Bart Williams and Pippa Winslow. Sets and costume design is by Georgia Lowe, with lighting by Mike Robertson, sound by Andrew Johnson and musical direction by Michael Bradley. It is produced by Danielle Tarento and Choughed Productions Ltd, established by Warren Cabral. Burn and Cabral previously co-wrote the musical Joan of Arc in 1994.
