I'm wondering where this is going to open.

"I have a voice" from this show was used recently in an anti bullying campaign https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRB4e_aEces Great song and I like Robin Lerner's lyric here.

I'm very curious about this one. No idea where they're going to do it, Europe Asia maybe US regional? Between this and Man Who Laughs, which I thought might have been cancelled at one point, pretty excited about what's coming up. Not sure what's happening with Casanova.

Very intrigued again to see what Frank does with the Bernadette of Lourdes story.

Honestly I don't think this show will ever get produced.
I'm sure Frank might make some amazing songs for it but I really don't see WHERE this play would attract an audience. In Europe almost no one knows who Saint Bernadette was. Heck, I had to Google it and I'm a Roman Catholic European who was schooled in a private Catholic school.

But we're about a month away from the Concert, let's see if more info comes out about the project.

There was another musical version in the West End, but didn't work.

I'm not sure what's happening next at this point, this, "The Man Who Laughs" which is meant to be happening South Korea next year, and then there's "Casanova" which I remember at one point was supposed to be this year.

According to EMK website, The Man Who Laughs will open June, 2018

In latest bio for VBW's Christian Struppeck, it does still mention Casanova but no time frame is given.
