As the From Page to Stage festival comes to a close on 3 September, the big question now is what lies next for these fantastic new shows? After a work in progress run at The Other Palace during the festival, Steven Sater and Burt Bacharach's musical SOME LOVERS have released a new trailer with some clips of the live show mixed with the soundtrack. Where would you like to see the show go next..?
SOME LOVERS is a valentine to the New York we’re always leaving behind - a new musical from Tony and Grammy Award winning writer Steven Sater (Spring Awakening), and Academy Award, Grammy Award winning pop legend Burt Bacharach. Inspired by The Gift of the Magi, it’s a contemporary parable about the gifts we give one another -- a love story, set over twenty years. (Four actors play two characters caught between present and past.) The show features an all-new score by Bacharach and Sater, brilliantly arranged by Jonathan Tunick. It’s Bacharach’s first new score for the theater since Promises Promises in 1968.
