DAVID COPPERFIELD, THE NEW MUSICAL
Book, Lyrics and Music by Jeffrey Scharf
Directed & Co-Produced by Joseph Paul Stachura
Musical Direction by Max Bennett-Parker
Orchestrations by Brian Allan Hobbs
Choreography by Lee Ann Payne
Co-Produced with J. Scharf Music
Adapted from Charles Dickens’ favorite and most autobiographical novel, DAVID COPPERFIELD, THE NEW MUSICAL brings Copperfield’s story to tuneful life, from birth to marriage. As a child, David endures the sadism of his step-father Murdstone, the cruelty of the villainous schoolmaster Creakle, and the mind-numbing routine of a London sweatshop. As an adult, he is visited by happiness and success, tragedy and loss. Along the way, he meets some of Dickens’ most memorable characters: his formidable Aunt Betsey, the sea-faring Peggotty family, the monosyllabic coachman Barkis, the grandiloquent Mr. Micawber and the contemptible Uriah Heep.
