17 Maart 2010: Ich War Noch Niemals In New York

On 17 March 2010 the German musical "Ich war Noch Niemals In New York," had its premiere at the Vienna Raimund Theatre. The musical has had success since its premiere in 2007 in Hamburg. Yet the people at Stage Entertainment International, who produced the musical, were still not satisfied.

I was asked to improve the German script and to bring it closer to the public of Vienna and Stuttgart, of which they expected to be more critical and more modern. It was an honour that I was asked to do so.

Fortunately the assignment worked to everyone's satisfaction: The show was a great success in Vienna. And this version will also have its premiere in Stuttgart in November. That's nice. For me it was a nice adventure.
