News   PHOTO CALL: Musical Paradise Found in Rehearsal
Paradise Found, the new musical co-directed by Harold Prince and Susan Stroman to play the Menier Chocolate Factory in London, began rehearsals in Manhattan April 5.

The production boasts the talents of Kate Baldwin, Shuler Hensley, Judy Kaye, Mandy Patinkin, John McMartin, Nancy Opel, George Lee Andrews, Amanda Kloots-Larsen, Lacey Kohl, Herndon Lackey, Daniel Marcus, Jim Poulos, Martin Van Treuren and Pamela Winslow Kashani.

It all starts with the Shah of Persia, who is feeling low. To lift his spirits, he's off to Vienna with his Eunuch in tow for new adventures. The Shah promptly falls in love with the Empress of the Empire, much to the dismay of her husband, so a resident of the local brothel — who is a double for the Empress — is substituted for a night of passion. But she's in love with a Baron, who's having an affair with the Soap Manufacturer's Wife…"
