New ALW Musical

The Woman in White, Andrew Lloyd Webber's newest musical, which marks the Broadway debut of Olivier Award-winning actress Maria Friedman, begins previews at the Marquis Theatre Oct. 28.

Friedman stars as Marian Halcombe, a role she created in the musical's London production, opposite Michael Ball's Count Fosco. The musical will officially open Nov. 17.

According to production notes, The Woman in White concerns "a dashing young man, employed as the art tutor to two devoted sisters, [who] is stranded at a remote railway cutting. Out of the darkness looms a woman, a mysterious figure dressed in white, desperate to share a chilling secret. He and the sisters soon find themselves trapped in a web of betrayal and greed, the victims of a seemingly flawless crime. Together they will need all their resourcefulness and courage to outwit a hugely charismatic and ingenious villain. As the compelling plot twists and turns, low villainy vies with high romance in a world where nothing is as it first appears and where it is impossible to know who to trust."
