Rebecca, inspired by the novel by Daphne Du Maurier, features original book and lyrics by Michael Kunze, music by Sylvester Levay, English book adaptation by two-time Tony Award winner Christopher Hampton (Sunset Boulevard), English lyrics by Hampton and Kunze, and direction by Francesca Zambello (The Little Mermaid, Little House on the Prairie).

Based on the classic novel (and later turned into an Oscar-winning film by Alfred Hitchcock), Rebecca is the story of Maxim de Winter (Brent Barrett), his new wife (Sierra Boggess) and Mrs. Danvers (Pia Douwes), the housekeeper of his West Country estate of Manderley — where the memory of his first wife, the glamorous and mysterious Rebecca, still casts a shadow."

Rebecca had its world premiere in 2006 at Vereinigte Buhnen Wien in Vienna, where it played to sold-out houses totaling more than three years.

The musical is in discussions for a Toronto premiere prior to Broadway and the West End.
