Angels: new musical planning to open on Broadway in 2008/09 season
A new musical Angels, music by Ken Lai, with book and lyrics by Marcus Cheong & Ken Lai, is to open on Broadway during the 2008/09 Broadway season.
Angels tells the epic story of the ancient war between the Angels and Luciferï¿½s fallen minions. The conflict is told through the eyes of Sera, the Angel of Light. Though she is gifted with the power to control light with spectacular effect, she aspires for a more heroic role. Her ambition is manipulated by Lucifer, which results in tragic consequences to the Angels and the humans they protect.
Sera must decide how far she is willing to go and what she must sacrifice to turn the tide in this celestial battle.
Other members of the musical's creative and producing team include Richard Fowler (director); Mary Mitchell Campbell (music supervisor); Laura Bergquist (music director); Tamara Lovatt-Smith (producing associate); Robert R. Blume (consulting producer); and Snug Harbor Productions, Inc. (general management).
The musical is to have a pre-Broadway engagement at the Trand Theater in Shreveport, Los Angeles from 29 Aug - 13 Sep 2008.
