The classic DreamWorks animated film The Prince Of Egypt springs to life at the Dominion Theatre as an exciting new musical.
With music and lyrics by the renowned Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), the show transports audiences to the shifting sands of Ancient Egypt, where two young men grown up together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege. But when a secret path is unearthed, they are divided – one must rule as Pharaoh, and the other must rise up and free his true people. Both face a destiny that will change their worlds – and history – forever.
With a book by Philip LaZebnik, and 10 new songs written by Schwartz, The Prince Of Egypt musical incorporates 5 of the acclaimed songs from the film, including Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted, Through Heaven’s Eyes and the Academy Award-winning number, When You Believe.
The creative team for The Prince Of Egypt in the West End will be headed up by director Scott Schwartz (The Hunchback Of Notre Dame). Choreography is by Sean Cheesman (So You Think You Can Dance), with set design by Kevin Depinet, costumes from Tony Award winner Ann Hould-Ward (The Beauty And The Beast), lighting design by Mike Billings, sound by three-time Olivier Award winner Gareth Owen, and projection by Olivier Award winner Jon Driscoll.
Luke Brady and Liam Tamne will lead the cast of The Prince Of Egypt musical in London as Moses and Ramses respectively. Luke is best-known for playing Anthony Hope in Jonathan Kent’s acclaimed West End revival of Sweeney Todd, while Liam most recently starred as Giuseppe Naccarelli in The Light In The Piazza. Christine Allado (formerly Peggy/Maria Reynolds in Hamilton) plays Tzipporah, with Alexia Khadime (Wicked, The Lion King and Les Mis) as Miriam.
