Scott Alan-Christy Hall Musical Home, Directed by Stafford Arima, Aiming for West End Bow in 2014
By Andrew Gans
Scott Alan and Christy Hall's original musical Home, directed by Olivier nominee Stafford Arima (Carrie, Altar Boyz, Ragtime), is aiming for a bow in London's West End in 2014.
Producers Julian Stoneman and Amzi Entertainment are now attached to the new musical, which had an industry workshop this past June featuring three-time Oscar nominee Diane Ladd as Wendy, Kendra Kassebaum as Katherine, Allie Trimm as Kat and Lilla Crawford as Katie.
Producer Stoneman posted on Twitter Nov. 25, "@amzient & I acquired rights for @homethemusical by @scottalannet & @christyhall22 for hopeful 2014 West End opening!"
About his newest project, director Arima previously told Playbill.com, "I had heard of Home over the years. I knew of it, but never had come in contact with the script. This past February, I was contacted by the authors and invited to read the new draft. I was immediately hooked. The musical has undergone some exciting changes since its previous exploration in the fall of 2011…What does remain intact within Home is its uninhibited journey about learning to love the outrageous humanity that lives within us all, and that it is possible to survive the wounds of one’s past."
Alan and Hall's musical is described as such: "Having moved away from her place of birth in a small Texas town, Katherine returns home, nine years later, to confront her childhood, her mother, and most importantly, herself. Home celebrates the complex bond between mother and daughter and reveals how a fragile past can be brought back to life with forgiveness and understanding."
