New York City premiere! Revised since its acclaimed run on the West End, Maddie is ready to bring its ghostly spectacle to the heart of the theater district. Nick and Jan Cheyney have recently moved into a dilapidated attic apartment in downtown Los Angeles. Beneath the peeling wallpaper, they are amazed to uncover a message scrawled in lipstick by 1920s dancer Madeline Marsh. Fascinated by the discovery, they are unprepared for the return of its ghostly author, still desperate to become a movie star.
Maddie played at London’s Lyric Theatre and is based on the Jack Finney novel ‘Marion’s Wall’ (adapted as the film Maxie). It features music by Stephen Keeling, lyrics by Shaun McKenna, and book by McKenna and Steven Dexter. Director and choreographer is Andrew Winans, produced by Bennett Theatricals.
This high-energy concert presentation, starring a new cast, will showcase an illustrious score that has already developed a fanbase amongst theatergoers. The original London cast recording by Stage Door Records can be purchased here.
