Charles Dickens' classic novel 'A Tale Of Two Cities'
was developed as a musical in the mid sixties by theatre producer Jerry Wayne who commissioned his son Jeff to compose the score for the project. With a book by Constance Cox, music by
Jeff Wayne and lyrics by Jerry Wayne; 'Two Cities' opened at London's Palace Theatre on February 27th 1969.
The musical starred Edward Woodward (as Sydney Carton), Kevin Colson (as Charles Darnay),
Elizabeth Power (as Lucie Manette), Nicolette Roeg (as Madame Defarge) and
Leone Greene (as Monsieur Defarge). Although reviews were mixed,
'Two Cities' was nominated for 'Best Musical' at the
1969 Variety Club and Evening Standard Awards with Edward Woodward winning for
'Best Male Performance in a Musical'.
Stage Door are pleased to debut the
'Two Cities' Original London Cast Album on CD coupled with the
