Theatre Productions Limited will be bringing its ninth UK tour of Over The Rainbow: The Eva Cassidy Story to Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Friday, February 10, from 7.30pm.
Since its first performance in 2004, this compelling musical play has received rapturous receptions. This is the poignant and moving story of Washington-born singer Eva Cassidy. By the time of her death, she was unknown outside Washington but within four years Terry Wogan discovered and promoted her haunting interpretation of Somewhere Over the Rainbow to the top of the chart.
This sad but uplifting musical play journeys through her life, from her idyllic childhood growing up in a musical family, to her studio work with boyfriend and mentor Chris Biondo; to the exuberant live recording of Blues Alley and finally to her tragically premature death at the age of only 33 years.
The show features a talented cast of actors and musicians and tickets, costing £19 (£17 concessions) are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
