Kerry Ellis and Russell Watson to star in Adam and Eve musical
Kerry Ellis, Russell Watson and Hugh Maynard are to star in a new musical retelling of the story of Adam and Eve.
Heaven on Earth will star Ellis as Eve and Maynard as Adam, with Russell Watson as the voice of God. He will not appear on stage.
The show will create the Garden of Eden with effects including fire, water and animatronics.
Script, music and lyrics are by Sara Jeffs. Racky Plews will direct and choreograph, with set by Jacqueline Pyle and musical arrangements by Geoff Alexander.
Jeffs said: “This brand new musical, and its original emotive songs, will resonate with people of all ages and backgrounds. The story of Adam and Eve is the oldest and greatest story ever told.”
The show will tour arenas across the UK from December 4 2017 until May 12 2018, beginning at Birmingham Barclaycard Arena and finishing at Wembley Arena in London.
