New Hal Prince/Susan Stroman Paradise Found musical opening at Menier Chocolate Factory

Paradise Found is now definitely going ahead at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Broadway star Mandy Patinkin will lead the jointly-directed Hal Prince and Susan Stroman production which will run  from May 19th until  June 26th. The show is based on Joseph Roth's novel The Tale Of The 1002nd Night which is about a visit the Shah of Persia made to Europe in 1873.
Patinkin will play the Shah's eunuch and more casting is expected to be announced shortly.

The music is by Johann Strauss Jr, which has been orchestrated by Jonathan Tunick with a book by Richard Nelson and lyrics by Ellen Fitzhugh.
