AIR DATE: May 1, 2010

Most of Charles Dickens's books have been turned into plays and movies. But he might have raised an eyebrow (or danced a jig) to see the latest incarnation: "Great Expectations"... the musical. The Utah Shakespearean Festival is presenting the world premiere of the musical this summer, and they're giving a sneak peek in Las Vegas. The composer, lyricist, and the actress playing "Miss Havisham" talk about what it means when you put Charles Dickens on stage with music and songs. The Utah Shakespeare Festival will be previewing the musical, "Great Expectations," at its fundraising dinner Thursday night at Lawry's Prime Rib Restaurant.

Guests:
Ellen Crawford, actress playing Miss Havisham, "Great Expectations"
Steve Lane, Lyricist, "Great Expectations"
Richard Winzeler, Composer, "Great Expectations"
