The Prince of Egypt description

If your children love The Prince of Egypt, the beautiful animated 1998 movie by DreamWorks, they'll be thrilled to bits to hear about this extraordinarily special event. DreamWorks Theatricals, a part of Universal Theatrical Group, along with Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw, have just announced a brand new musical based on the movie.

The stage show will, of course, feature the the Academy Award winning tune, 'When You Believe', a song fans have been singing since the movie was released. We bet you can't wait to see it on stage!

The fun kicks off at the Dominion Theatre on 5th February 2020, and there's going to be a glittering, star-studded London premiere on 25th February 2020. It's on stage for a limited run of just 32 weeks, and you can buy tickets from early summer 2019, proof – as if you needed it - that the show is predicted to sell like hot cakes.

The music and lyrics are by Stephen Schwartz, who worked on the massive smash hit Wicked, a show which almost ten million people have seen so far in London alone and 60 million globally. The book comes from Philip LaZebnik, whose involvement with Mulan and Pocahontas has delighted millions. The musical is directed by the excellent Scott Schwartz, of The Hunchback of Notre Dame fame, and beautifully choreographed by Sean Cheesman, who did wonderful things with the US telly talent show So You Think You Can Dance.

This epic new musical features ten new show tunes, all written by Stephen Schwartz, plus five of his best-loved songs from the DreamWorks Animation. You'll soon be singing along with Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted and Through Heaven’s Eyes and more, as well as the award-winning When You Believe.

The plot? You'll travel through Ancient Egypt with a couple of young men, Moses and his adopted brother Rameses, the heir to the throne of Egypt. They've been raised together as brothers in a wealthy household but they're divided unexpectedly by a secret. One young man will become the Pharaoh, the other feels he must rise up and free the enslaved people. And their actions will change their world forever.

In 2018 The Prince of Egypt, the film, celebrated its 20th anniversary. It was praised widely by the critics and still holds the crown as one of the best-loved animations ever created. This epic new stage adaptation premiered at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley and won the 2019 Regional Theatre Tony Award. It also raised the roof at the Fredericia Teater Denmark. Now it's our turn. We can't wait!

Really enjoyable and some good songs - well worth seeing

First thing to note, this is not the film brought to stage! If you are expecting a faithful reproduction, you might be disappointed. That said, the minimalist set and the actors were spectacular; the desert, fire, water, etc. effects using human bodies was fantastic and worth going for that alone. I found that the rear projection was good, but sometimes distracting. The songs were good, but really only getting to great when using the ones from the film version.

Outstanding

The Prince of Egypt was amazing. The acting was superb and the singing by all the cast was out of this world. Initially we were a bit disappointed when we found out that the two male leads were being performed by the understudies but in truth both of their performances were superb and we wouldn’t have realised they were the understudies if we hadn’t been informed

Bit of a trainwreck

This has the potential to be amazing - but it's dogged with a million problems: totally unclear direction, loads of styles of theatre smushed into one, the original movie soundtrack songs still fantastic (and cast brilliant singers) but padded out with tons of filler ballads (dull, forgettable) Moses and Rameses are like American Idiot dudes, they change the Bible story at the end (questionable), show is hella long and the script is appalling. Cast do their best in the circumstances, well done to them, really impressive on that account. Otherwise, bit of a disaster, which is a shame.

It could have been soooo much better

With such a huge (and very good) cast and an epic story, score and songs like the ones they from the original animated feature, this musical version of “the prince of Egypt” should have been 10 times better than what we got. The cast (especially the women in it) is truly amazing and their first opening number (Deliver us) was really breathtaking. However it’s pretty much all downhill from there as the cast is let down by the rather flat direction and unimaginative choreography and set design: repetitive, underwear king and certainly not convey the scale and the epic feel of the story. The script itself doesn’t allow for any intimate moments and even the scenes which should be moving come across as a bit flat (the deaths of the first born children). It all lightens up once a rendition of a beautifully sung“when you believe” finally comes up, but by that time you’re already floating in boredom-land... even when sitting in the third row like I was. A great shame because a cast like the one I’ve just seen deserved a lot more.

A beautiful experience

Loved the show so much! It wasn't as comical as the cartoon version but songs were good, and actors were amazing. The plot wasn't changed that much, and the adaptation seriously fits the stage perfectly. The lighting and set was creative- wasn't sure how they'd make the parting of the sea-part of the show but how they did it made perfectly sense. Can't give enough praise to the magnificent leads of the show and how their voices fit together. Overall an emotional experience, which made me focused on the show from start to finish.

A directing rollercoaster

I have a feeling that the new scores written to fill out the 2,5 hour-show will never be sang by anyone like the original scores. They are not catchy and sometimes not even passing to the scenes (even though they were co-created by the original songwriter). The original songs still give you goosebumps every time you hear them, only to be cooled down by the dull ‘filler’ songs. The personal drama of Moses is very reminiscent of the dramas of Jesus and Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar (gotta serve that cruel god). Nevertheless, the choreography was excellent, and so were the actors’ singing performances. The story was a bit twisted at the end, but it can still be appreciated and enjoyed.

There can be miracles....This isn’t one of them

In 35 years of west end theatre going I have only ever walked out of 1 show. Until tonight! The great songs from the animated movie have been diminished by the extra, unmemorable, tedious rubbish written for this lacklustre production. The set was minimal, a mystery for such a large stage suited to extravagance. Projections were used in abundance, yet added little. The story was told clumsily and the choreography was obvious and unexciting. I felt sorry for a cast, who I know have great talent, but were let down by every other aspect of this venture. I loved Wicked, having seen it both on Broadway and the West End. This is no Wicked.

Good, but a missed opportunity to be GREAT

It's hard to live to a masterpiece like 'The Prince of Egypt', and this musical somewhat didn't manage. First of all the music. The original songs are so much better than the new ones, that you can instinctively notice the difference. The set is also very simplistic, and apart from blocks constantly being placed on stage, nothing really changes. The worst part for me tough was the choice of cast and most of the costumes. I find little effort was done to re-create a realistic effect, something which e.g. is achieved in the Lion King. So all in all is enjoyable, but considering the grandiosity of the movie, I really expected something far better.

A creative and politically correct production. Singing was incredible and my daughter was impressed by their voice control.

Disappointing

What should be a spectacular show was very disappointing. It was too rushed, too corny, only the original songs were needed, new songs very poor and totally forgettable, lyrics very poor. Quite amateurish at times story disjointed and the soldier scene at the end was laughable . Good performance and beautiful voices from Christine Allado and Alexia Khadime. Luke Brady did well however Liam Tame didn’t compliment one another when singing together,very shrill and harsh. Nothing against Gary Wilmitt but one of the best songs in the show needed depth and a strong voice. Hard to beat Brian Stokes Mitchel but there are far suited actors and singers out there. Also from where we were sat we could see the backstage activity. Stephen you should have stayed with the original songs and kept it serious giving us depth and soul. As theatre goers please give us credit, do not turn it into a pantomime this is a wonderful story that could be an emotional journey
