Manderley Dreams Renew

Kenneth Jones of has announced that Rebecca, a new musical based on the 1938 Daphne DuMaurier novel and its 1940 film adaptation by Alfred Hitchcock, will appear at the Broadhurst Theatre this fall. The production had been announced and highly anticipated for this season, but fell through when it lost one of its major investors.

"Rebecca is moving forward," according to a posting credited to lead producer Ben Sprecher. "We have identified the final missing piece of investment and the Shuberts (to whom I shall be forever indebted) have graciously allowed us to resume production to open at the Broadhurst in fall of 2012. Thank you all for you patience and most of all to the extraordinary creative team who have stuck by this fantastic production through thick and thin as Rebecca continues to play in productions throughout the world."

It is not clear whether the previously announced cast will continue with the show. They include Sierra Boggess (I), Tam Mutu (Maxim DeWinter), Karen Mason (Mrs. Winters) and James Barbour (Jack Favell).
