Tori Amos Musical Delayed Indefinitely

The Rolling Stone Blog

Tori Amos' musical based on George MacDonald's 19th century fairytale The Light Princess has been postponed indefinitely
by the National Theatre in London. The production was scheduled to
premiere as the centerpiece of the theater's spring season in April.

spokesperson for the National Theatre has denied that the theatre is
dropping the production, telling the Guardian that "development is
continuing on The Light Princess and we'll announce a new date for the production in due course."

Amos will be spending much of the next several months on tour for her new classical song cycle Night of Hunters, which she says spun out of her work on The Light Princess. "I've been working on the musical for what seems like 5,000 years now," Amos recently told Rolling Stone. "I've learned a lot about motivation of characters and being active instead of passive, and making a narrative come alive."
