Outlander the Musical Update

Received this today from Mike Gibb of "Outlander the Musical" fame:

Delighted to announce that New York based writer Jill Santoriello is to join Kevin Walsh and myself in developing the libretto for a stage version of Outlander The Musical, based on the hugely successful series of books by Diana Gabaldon. Diana is also very happy to welcome Jill aboard.

Jill Santoriello is best known as the writer of the book, lyrics and music for the Award winning musical A Tale of Two Cities, which was staged at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on Broadway in 2008 and which recently enjoyed a two month run at the Hale Centre Theatre in Salt Lake City

For further information on Outlander the Musical and to hear song samples from the concept CD go to www.outlanderthemusical.com. The web site for A Tale Of Two Cities, where you can listen to samples of the music, is to be found at  www.talemusical.com

I just don't believe a musical would do the Outlander story justice. It deserves more than that.

It's a very interesting development. Jill Santoriello is most definitely a legit name in the NY theater scene (tho A Tale of Two Cities was NOT a success and closed in a few months). It certainly makes me curious as to what will develop with the musical. Still think that they have a good deal of work to do on the music/lyrics front, though. But like I said, it should be interesting!
