Matthew Bourne’s Ballet Edward Scissorhands Revived By Sadler’s Wells

“Edward Scissorhands — A New Adventures Production”

Matthew Bourne turned Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands into a ballet that looks like it will be great holiday season fun.

The revival of Edward Scissorhands is scheduled for Sadler’s Wells Theatre beginning in December:

“Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, played live each night by the New Adventures Orchestra, this touching and witty love story tells the bittersweet tale of a boy left alone and unfinished in a strange new world.  It is a parable for our times about the ultimate outsider.”

Wish I could travel over for the big show. Bonus: Edward Scissorhands photoshoot:
