Based on the 1908 novel by E.M. Forster, this adaptation combines gorgeous new music with a classic story, and adheres closer to the original novel than the 1985 movie, which starred Helena Bonham Carter as the sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch, who's introduced to passion and love while vacationing in Tuscany. While the unforgettable Edwardian characters remain, this enchanting production takes the story to lofty heights through a terrific score and memorable new songs. When Honeychurch meets the free-spirited George Emerson, she must decide whether to remain in the life that has been chosen for her, or break free and give up everything she knows in the name of love.

The choreography was really impressive and Christopher Charles Wood had a beautiful voice.
This Faustian tale will feature a line-up of power hitters from Seattle and Broadway including Hugh Hastings as aging baseball enthusiast Joe Boyd, Christopher Charles Wood as Young Joe Hardy, Patti Cohenour as the baseball widow Meg Boyd, Hans Altwies as Mr. Applegate (the Devil in disguise), and Chryssie Whitehead as the legendary seductress Lola. Allen Fitzpatrick and Nancy Anderson join the roster as Coach Benny Van Buren and Gloria Thorpe, ace reporter.
Direction is by Mark S. Hoebee (Paper Mill’s Producing Artistic Director), music direction by Ben Whiteley, and choreography by Denis Michael Jones.
