‘Rebecca’ Musical Gets a Theater and a Star

(Patrick Healy, The New York Times) Sierra Boggess (“The Little Mermaid,” “Love Never Dies”) has been cast to play the second Mrs. de Winter in a Broadway production of “Rebecca,” a musical version of Daphne du Maurier’s gothic novel, the producers announced on Wednesday. They also said they had nailed down the Broadhurst Theater for the musical, no small feat given that producers of several shows must jockey for available theaters in an unusually tight real estate market on Broadway.

“Rebecca,” which was also adapted for film in 1940 by Alfred Hitchcock, centers on the new wife of a wealthy Englishman, Maxim de Winter, and their spooky life on his estate, Manderley, which may be haunted by his dead first wife. Joan Fontaine played the second Mrs. de Winter in the film; the character did not have her own name, while Ms. Boggess’s character has been named “I.”
