The Prince of Egypt
Time Out says
The cult favourite animated movie is coming to the West End's biggest theatre
Stephen Schwartz has a pretty permanent hold over West End crowds with 'Wicked', his long-running blockbuster fantasy musical. Now, he's dusting the Egyptian sands from his 1998 Dreamworks movie, an old testament epic centring on Moses, and boasting some memorable songs and epic, chariot-racing special effects. It's a film that's got a special place in the hearts of animated movie aficionados, even if its ambitious, slightly sombre approach didn't get quite as much of a rapturous reception in the UK as it did in the US's Bible Belt.
'The Prince of Egypt' is moving into the suitably gigantic setting of Tottenham Court Road's Dominion Theatre. Schwartz has dreamt up 10 new numbers for this musical version, which will sit alongside the movie's songs including charttopper 'When You Believe', originally sung by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. It'll have a book by Philip LaZebnik, who penned Disney flicks 'Mulan' and 'Pocahontas', and is choreographed by 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge Sean Cheesman.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday 3rd June 2019.
