Tale Of Two Cities Set To Open This Fall On Broadway
Jill Santoriello's A Tale of Two Cities, the Dickens-inspired musical that had a test run in Sarasota, FL, last fall, will begin Broadway previews Aug. 19 toward a Sept. 18 opening at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre."Set against the epic backdrop of the French Revolution and based on the classic Dickens novel, A Tale of Two Cities is a musical about injustice, vengeance and the redemptive power of love," describe press notes, "When Dr. Manette is released from the French Bastille after 17 years, he must be resurrected from the brink of madness by his daughter, Lucie. In England they meet two very different men: the exiled French aristocrat, Charles Darnay, whom Lucie marries, and the drunken cynic, Sydney Carton. Soon family secrets and political intrigue combine to draw Lucie and her family back to Paris. At the height of the Reign of Terror, the musical finds an unlikely hero in Carton, inspired by love to make an extraordinary sacrifice." James Barbour, the baritone who starred in Broadway's Assassins, Beauty and the Beast, Carousel and Jane Eyre, will be selfless, conflicted hero Sydney Carton in Broadway's new musical, A Tale of Two Cities.
