Based on the novel by Audrey Niffenegger and the New Line Cinema film screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin, The Time Traveller’s Wife: The Musical has a book by Lauren Gunderson, original music and lyrics by Stone and Stewart, additional music by Nick Finlow, and additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan. Opening night in London is scheduled for November 1.
The work centers on a love story between Henry and Clare, one experienced out of order thanks to Henry's rare condition, which sees him pulled into the past or the future with no warning when his genetic clock periodically resets.
The production, which will be directed by Bill Buckhurst, will also have designs by Anna Fleischle, choreography by Shelley Maxwell, lighting design by Lucy Carter and Rory Beaton, illusions by Chris Fisher, video design by Andrzej Goulding, sound design by Richard Brooker, sound FX design by Pete Malkin, musical supervision and arrangement by Nick Finlow, orchestrations by Malcolm Edmonstone, wigs, hair, and makeup design by Susanna Peretz, and casting by Grindrod Burton Casting.
The musical is produced by Colin Ingram, InTheatre Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, Teresa Tsai, Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, and Crossroads Live.
