A new video has been released of Anna O’Byrne and Ashley Stillburn performing ‘I Believe My Heart’ from the upcoming revival of The Woman in White which opens for previews on the 20th November.
The new revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical will play at the Charing Cross Theatre from the 20th November, directed by Thom Southerland.
Featuring a newly revised score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by David Zippel, The Woman in White is a tale of love, greed and betrayal adapted from Wilkie Collins’ haunting Victorian thriller.
Walter Hartright’s life is changed forever after a chance encounter with a mysterious woman, dressed in white, desperate to reveal her chilling secret. When he takes up his position as drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie and her half sister, Marian, he sees in Laura’s face an eerie reflection of the forlorn creature he met previously. Walter and Laura’s feelings for each other are thwarted by her engagement to the sinister Sir Percival Glyde. What is the connection between, Laura, Sir Percival, and the woman in white? Can true love prevail?
This new production is set to star Anna O’Byrne (The Phantom of the Opera) as Laura Fairlie alongside Chris Peluso (Miss Saigon) as Sir Percival Glyde, Carolyn Maitland (Ghost) as Marian, Ashley Stillburn (The Phantom of the Opera) as Walter Hartright, Greg Castiglioni (Titanic) as Count Fosco, and Sophie Reeves (Les Miserables) as Anne.
