The Go-Between, a new musical with a score by Richard Taylor, based on the classic novel by L.P. Hartley, begins performances May 27 prior to an official opening June 7 at the Apollo Theatre.
Michael Crawford stars with Issy Van Randwyck, Stuart Wood and Gemma Sutton also featured. Also in the cast are Julian Forsyth, Stephen Carlile, Silas Wyatt-Barke, Jenni Bowden and John Addison.
Crawford plays Leo Colston, "a man who can no longer hide from the memories of his past," according to press notes. "Memories of the gloriously hot summer of 1900 and of his days spent in Norfolk come flooding back. Spending the holidays with the family of his school friend Marcus in their luxurious country home, the young Leo finds himself acting as the go-between for the beautiful upper-class Marian and tenant-farmer Ted who are embroiled in a forbidden love affair. The innocent Leo gets caught up in the adult world of deceit and manipulation as he risks everything in this deeply moving coming of age story. The events of that summer and the devastating effects of love denied will shape his life forever."
The production is directed by Roger Haines and is adapted by David Wood, who is also the co-lyricist.
