The Sound of Music to be Revived at U.K.'s Curve in Leicester
19 May 2014
A new production of the Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II classic The Sound of Music will be staged at Leicester's Curve this Christmas, beginning performances Nov. 28 prior to an official opening Dec. 3 for a run through Jan. 17, 2015.
The creative team behind the recent new production of Chicago at the venue will be reunited for the production, including artistic director Paul Kerryson, choreographer Drew McOnie and musical director Ben Atkinson.
Kerryson's other directorial credits at Curve include The Beauty Queen of Leenane, Piaf, Hello, Dolly!, Entertaining Mr. Sloane, Buried Child, Gypsy, Absurd Person Singular, The Light in the Piazza, The King and I (also U.K. tour), 42nd Street, The Pillowman and The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
McOnie is currently represented in London by his choreography for the U.K. premiere of In the Heights at Southwark Playhouse. Drunk, the inaugural production of his own McOnie Company, premiered at Curve before transferring to London's Bridewell Theatre earlier this year.
