In the sprit of Les Miz this epic new musical comes to the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on August 19, 2008 for previews with an official start date of September 18, 2008. A Tale of Two Cities is based on the classic 1859 Charles Dickens novel of the same name. It is a love story set against the backdrop of the French Revolution that tells a tale intertwined with injustice, revenge and the love that two men have for the same woman. The production enjoyed a successful trial run last year at the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Florida.

“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times…” This opening line of the novel may very well be the most famous in all of literature. The production takes place between London and Paris and is where the “two cities” reference is derived. The story begins with the release of Dr. Manette who spent seventeen years in solitary confinement in the Bastille. He is reunited with his daughter Lucie whom he has never met. As the family makes the journey from France to England they encounter many obstacles along the way including the French Revolution. The tale unfolds as the family is separated, secrets are revealed and political intrigue comes to the surface. Above all else the production is a love story like no other.

The book, music and lyrics were written by Jill Santoriello. The production stars Aaron Lazur and James Barbour in the lead roles. Barbour is reprising the role of Sydney Carlton from the Florida production. He is best known for his role as Rochester in the musical Jane Eyre and was last seen on Broadway in the 2004 production of The Assassins. In the role of Charles Darnay is Lazar. He was most recently seen as Enjorlas in the revival of Les Miserables for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in A Musical.

A Tale of Two Cities is a literary masterpiece that has stood the test of time. It is a classic and universal love story that deals with topics that are still relevant today. The musical is a fresh new way to tell the tale. The intriguing music relays the story of this epic romance in a way that will leave the audience mesmerized. Come and see why it truly was the best of time and the worst of times. You’ll be glad that you did! Tickets are on sale now!
