New Hope In New York

Sylvester and I just received the following press release from our hard hit Broadway Producers:
"Lead producers Ben Sprecher and Louise Forlenza, announced today that REBECCA, the musical based on the classic novel by Daphne du Maurier, has officially extended its rights through December 31, 2014 and is eyeing a Winter 2014 start.  They are now joined by Co Producers Steven Colson, Peter Bezemes and Barbara Sellinger, along with the previously announced co-producers, who all remained committed to the project.
REBECCA’s previous delay was initially the result of the fraud perpetrated by Mark Hotton (who is now serving time in jail) and then, more damagingly, the consequence of anonymous and malicious e-mails that were revealed to have been sent by the show’s previous press agent Marc Thibodeau to a new investor who was replacing a major portion of Hotton’s investors.  Thibodeau’s emails, which were sent as recently as three days before rehearsals were to begin, resulted in the new investor’s abrupt withdrawal and the delay of the show in the Fall of 2012.  A civil litigation against Thibodeau and unnamed others remains pending and is scheduled to be ready for trial in the middle of 2014."
