Wind in the Willows to be produced in the West End
Date Posted: 13/12/11
A new musical adaptation of The Wind in the Willows will come to the West End, featuring the same creative team which collaborated on the stage version of Mary Poppins.
Julian Fellowes, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe will work on the book, music and lyrics with the opening date and theatre to be announced in due course.
The trio previously helped Mary Poppins achieve an Olivier Award during its three-year run in front of those booking London theatre breaks, while the show has also been running on Broadway since 2006.
Speaking about the upcoming production, Fellowes said: "The Wind In The Willows is one of our greatest classics, and as true and entertaining now as it has ever been. I am delighted and tremendously flattered to have been asked to write the book for the new musical."
Among his other credits are films such as The Importance of Being Earnest and Vanity Fair, along with TV period drama Downton Drama.
