Why See The Scarlet Pimpernel?
Liberte. Egalite. Fraternite.
A swashbuckling musical adventure the likes of which Broadway had never seen before, Frank Wildhorn's The Scarlet Pimpernel gripped audiences with its sweeping scope, hotblooded drama and passionate romance during its critically acclaimed three year run on Broadway between 1997 and 2000. Now the rousing musical enjoys a one-night-only concert revival as part of Manhattan Concert Productions Broadway Series, helmed by two-time Tony nominated director and choreographer Jeff Calhoun this winter.
A glorious window into 18th century history, the production is based on the iconic 20th century novel by Baroness Orczy and chronicles the political and social turmoil of the French revolution. During the growing tumult of its early years, a mysterious English nobleman known only as The Scarlet Pimpernel saves French aristocrats from the sharp bite of the guillotine. By day and out of disguise, he masquerades as the dandy Sir Percy Blakeney. When he falls for the exquisitely beautiful actress Marguerite St. Just, he becomes involved in a love triangle that endangers his plans to save Louis XVII as well his his masked identity.
Performance date: 18 February 2019
