OOC: Going through old stuff and look what I’ve found! If only I still had a VHS player I could watch Clopin be bae and sing along.

'HUNCHBACK' to be emotionally deeper, will have 10 new songs



Playbill.com wrote up a little featurette about Disney’s HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME with Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, Peter Parnell (libretto), and Scott Schwartz (director).

In it, we learn that:

  • The musical will be “emotionally deeper” because they are liberated from “needing to reach a family audience.”
  • They are “bringing more nuance” to Frollo and explore "the complexity inside him."
  • The musical will differ “both in form and at times in content” from the movie and will be closer to Victor Hugo’s narrative.
  • There will be a “different ending” and "ten new songs or pieces of songs," some coming from the Berlin version and some completely new.

Pretty exciting! Especially for those who were against a family-friendly show.

Hunchback starts preview performances on Oct 26. and opens  Nov. 9.

Pics from HUNCHBACK rehearsals and set building work-in progress. Am I the only one who finds it disgustingly cute that they have HoND toys from 1996 lying around?

P.S. Arden looks like he lacks a beard, so you can all relax about Quasi’s potential facial hair. XD

Special thanks to Michael Arden, Samantha Massell, Beth Kirkpatrick, and La Jolla Playhouse for sharing these awesome pictures.
