News   Warsaw Ghetto-Set Imagine This to Open in London's West End in the Fall Imagine This, a new, original musical with music by Shuki Levy and book and lyrics by Glenn Berenbein and David Goldsmith, will begin previews at the West End's New London Theatre Nov. 4 with an official opening on Nov. 19. The production tried out at the Plymouth Theatre Royal in July 2007.

Set in Poland during 1942, the musical revolves around a group of actors in the Warsaw Ghetto who stage plays to inspire hope and optimism within their community. However, with rumours of the Final Solution in the air, their play merges with the reality they are trying to escape and a dramatic love story unfolds. Imagine This is directed by Timothy Sheader, who is currently in the midst of his first season as artistic director of the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park, where his production of Romeo and Juliet is now running. Sets are by Broadway's Eugene Lee (Wicked, Sweeney Todd and Candide), costumes by Ann Hould-Ward (Beauty and the Beast), and choreography will by Liam Steel (Complicite, DV8, Frantic Assembly).

No casting has yet been announced. It is produced in London by Beth Trachtenberg, Anita Mann, Leigh Mason, Jean Mason and ICW Productions in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth.
