We're partnering with MT Fest to share with you Far From Heaven.
Book Richard Greenberg
Music Scott Frankel
Lyrics Michael Korie
Director Matthew White
Based on the Focus Features/Vulcan Productions motion picture written & directed by Todd Haynes
Cathy Whitaker seems to be the picture-perfect wife and mother in 1957 suburban Connecticut. But roiling beneath the surface, secret longings and forbidden desires cause her world to unravel, with incendiary consequences.
With a lush score that is both jazz-inflected and hauntingly lyrical, Far From Heaven is a powerful story of romance, betrayal, and intolerance, as a woman grapples with her identity in a society on the verge of upheaval.

MTFestUK is a yearly festival that promotes the best in new musical theatre. The two week long festival allows eight new and emerging pieces of musical theatre to be presented in a workshop setting in front of a live audience. The presentations therefore are by no means complete and actors will use scripts, limited props etc. This is a deliberate choice to allow the writing team the opportunity to work on the material before projects move into full production.
