So excited to announce a new musical, based on the film The Illusionist. The book is by Peter Duchan, and music and lyrics by me. Its world premiere is happening in Tokyo at the end of 2020/start of 2021, directed by Thom Southerland. All the details here.
Excited that the RSC production of Timon of Athens is being mounted at Theater For A New Audience in Brooklyn and the Shakespeare Theatre Company, Washington DC.
As I move on from the Donmar and Josie Rourke steps down as Artistic Director here are a few pictures from a selection of Donmar productions I’ve worked on during my residency.
An amazing time with great people – wishing all at the Donmar the very best for the future.
