THE SCREENING ROOM: New Highlights from Tori Amos Musical The Light Princess (Video)

The National Theatre has released a new trailer for The Light Princess, the new London musical with music and lyrics by Tori Amos and book and lyrics by Samuel Adamson.

Described in press materials as a "dark fairytale about grief, rebellion and the power of love," it is directed by Marianne Elliott, most recently represented in London by Sweet Bird of Youth at the Old Vic and the ongoing West End transfers of the National Theatre's productions of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and War Horse (the latter of which she co-directed with Tom Morris and has also played on Broadway). It officially opened Oct. 9 with Rosalie Craig starring as Althea.
