The exciting news I shared last June — about the musical adaptation of The Man with the Violin in the works — is about to become a living thing. The man with the violin, Joshua Bell himself, will play the part of the solo violinist who was ignored by thousands when he played in a Washington DC metro station in 2007.
The world premiere will take place at the Kennedy Center in that city Sunday, February 12. Watch this space for news of the Canadian premier at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa in December.
Look carefully at the promo piece Annick Press created for the show and you’ll see exciting news about another story about that “man with the violin”, when he was just a boy with a violin.
