The Biblical Story Is Heading For Broadway

If you have not yet seen the iconic animated movie “The Prince of Egypt,” a story based on the Biblical story of Moses in Exodus, then you are certainly missing out. But in more recent news, new stage musical version of DreamWorks’ The Prince of Egypt will make its London premiere next year, with a West End production slated to begin previews Wednesday, February 5, 2020, at the Dominion Theatre.

The 32-week limited engagement will officially open Tuesday, February 25.

Producers of DreamWorks Theatricals, Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw, said the new musical will feature music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked”) and a book by Philip LaZebnik (“Mulan,” “Pocahontas”), as well as 10 new songs along with five from the movie. The musical will even include the famous Oscar-winning “When You Believe,” song, which was originally recorded by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.

The production will be directed by Scott Schwartz (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and choreographed by Sean Cheesman (So You Think You Can Dance).

According to the DreamWorks Theatricals description, “two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.”
