The Prince of Egypt Musical
If you grew up in a Christian home in the late 90s/early 2000s chances are you've seen The Prince of Egypt numerous times, enough to know all the words to Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston's iconic song "When You Believe". (By the way, that song won an Oscar for Best Original Song in 1999) Well, that animated film based on the biblical story of Moses is heading to London's West End!
The DreamWorks film will be turned into a new stage musical premiering in London's West End in February 2020. The musical will be produced by DreamWorks Theatricals, Michael McCabe, and Neil Laidlaw. Although casting has not yet been announced, the show will feature 10 new songs by the film's composer, Stephen Schwartz and include 5 songs from the movie.
While this is exciting news, it's not the first stage adaptation of The Prince of Egypt. In 2017, a production of this took place at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley in California and then in Denmark of 2018.
The opening night for the musical is set for February 25th, 2020- until then, check out that epic song below!
