A series pre-production images have been released by producers of the Biblical-inspired musical Children of Eden, which is being revived in the West End for one night only in a spectacular star-studded charity gala at the Prince of Wales?Theatre on Sunday 29 January. Check them out below!
They show Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical's Oliver Thornton, who plays Adam; We Will Rock You Killer Queen Brenda Edwards (Mamma Noah); 2011 X Factor contestant John Wilding (Abel) and Anton Stephans (Father). More pictures will be released in the coming weeks.
Children of Eden, by Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz and John?Caird, will be performed by a company of 75, and will feature stars drawn from the West End and TV. The concert is being staged to raise awareness of the chronic and debilitating condition, Crohn's disease and all proceeds will be donated to Crohn's and Colitis UK.
Children of Eden had its world premiere at the Prince Edward Theatre on January 8, 1991. It's a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith. Freely based on the story of Genesis, Children of Eden is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. The show delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that the hardest part of love is letting go.
