The curtain rises.
«Downtown – The Musical»
«Call Me» from «Downtown – Die Musicalrevue».
Petula Clark is the most successful British singer of all time. With hits such as «Downtown», «My Love» and «The Other Man’s Grass is Always Greener» she conquered not only the charts but also the hearts of people the world over. In «Downtown – The Musical» the two authors Eric Langner and Markus Buehlmann bring London’s «swinging sixties» back to life in all their glory thanks to the songs written by Tony Hatch.
Status: First version of the book has been finished and sent to the composer, where it is being considered. A songs-only adaption of the play called «Downtown – Die Musicalrevue» has been staged successfully in Brunnen in December 2007.
