The Alliance is billing the staging as a new American adaptation of the musical. Re-branded as Zorro: A New Musical, the production has played several international engagements since its premiere.
Zorro has a book by Stephen Clark and Helen Edmundson, lyrics by Clark, and a score by The Gipsy Kings and John Cameron. It will run April 3-May 5, 2013, in Atlanta, GA. An official opening has been set for April 10, 2013.
"From the old American west comes the legend of Zorro, a fighter of corruption and lover of beautiful women," according to the Alliance. "When Don Diego comes home from Spain, he finds his father dead and his brother running Los Angeles--badly. Don Diego's foppish exterior hides the soul of a desert fox – Zorro!"
Fred Lassen will musical direct.
