'Chariots of Fire' to be adapted for stage
LONDON -- A stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning Olympic-themed pic "Chariots of Fire" leads the 2012 slate at London's off-West End Hampstead Theater.
Opening just ahead of the London Olympics with previews beginning May 9, "Chariots of Fire" is adapted from the 1981 Enigma Prods. film about two runners facing down anti-semitism in the 1924 Olympics. The pic won four Oscars, including best pic and original screenplay for Colin Welland.
Adapted by rising U.K. scribe Mike Bartlett ("Cock," "Earthquakes in London"), it is designed by Miriam Buether, lit by Rick Fisher ("Billy Elliot") and helmed by Hampstead a.d. Edward Hall. The production will also feature music from Vangelis' Oscar-winning score plus additional music and arrangements by Jason Carr, Tony-winner for "Sunday in the Park With George." . . .
