Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre presented the pre-Broadway,WORLD PREMIERE, of a new musical by award winning Lyricist Charles Leipart and Composer Richard Evans.  The story is based on the 1922 novel by  Elizabeth von Arnim , which has also been produced as a Tony Award nominee for Best Play on Broadway and made into an Oscar nominated film. Enchanted April is a lively romp about four English women who vacation in Italy.  The story and lively musical score reflect its setting in post-Victorian London and in Portofino, Italy – the Jazz Age and the 1920s – romantic, lyrical, jazzy.

Life and love are about to bloom for four London women.  These four ladies find each other, and the castle of their dreams, for one magical month on the Mediterranean.  They seek a much needed antidote from their London cares and what they find on the Italian shore awakens them to a world of beauty, ardor and the joys of living.  Love and comedy ensue when their husbands and lovers descend on the ladies’ heavenly retreat – where passions bloom in the Italian spring!

Featuring David Bryant, the actor who originated the role of Marius in the original cast of Broadway’s “Les Miserables”
