Rebecca the Musical starring Sierra Boggess postponed

LATEST NEWS: Rebecca is being postponed until the end of 
2012/beginning of 2013 due to lack of funds.

Lead producer Ben Sprecher said: "It is with great disappointment that we have made the decision to postpone the Broadway debut of this phenomenal musical until next season. Rebecca is a grand and spectacular musical requiring substantial capitalization, and it's no secret that in this very negative economic climate, raising money for Broadway has become even more difficult and laborious than it has historically always been. We are very close to meeting our financial goal, but we just ran short of time to complete capitalization with rehearsals slated to begin in two weeks. We feel that Rebecca is too special of a musical to short change in any way. It is our responsibility to the creators of this show, to our cast, our partners, our investors and our vendors that the complete financing is in place before rehearsals begin. Rebecca on Broadway must have the proper chance to continue the successful track record it currently enjoys worldwide. My co-producers and I remain very committed to bringing this wonderful show to New York next season."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------More Casting has just been announced for the musical Rebecca which is based on the classic novel by Daphne Du Maurier.  It opens at the Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway on April 22nd (previews from 27th March).
