A musical based on the life of legendary Welsh stage and screen actor Richard Burton will come to London in 2015.
The music will be written by award winning composers Daniel and Laura Curtis. Daniel and Laura recently wrote the music for the song ‘Why Am I Falling’ in aid of the BBC Children in Need appeal which is performed by West End Star Ramin Karimloo. Earlier this year they released ‘A MIner’s Song’ which featured over 300 people including, Michael Sheen, Jonathan Pryce, Aled Jones, Ioan Gruffudd, Matthew Rhys and the song is famously opened with the voice of the late Richard Burton.
Daniel Curtis said ”Richard Burton has always fascinated me and his relationship with Elizabeth Taylor has to be one of the most famous romances of all time. We want to take the audience on a journey from his humble beginnings in Pontrhydyfen to becoming one of the biggest stars in the World’
The rest of the creative team will be announced shortly.
