And The Melody's Gonna Make Me Fly…
Steve Barton, Tanz der Vampire’s original Count von Krolock, died July 21, 2001. May he rest without pain, without fear. Godspeed, Steve.
Holy Garbo, Batman!
A long list of varied projects are still in development and making very good progress...they include, among others, Warner’s development of the Steinman/Ives musical Batman. MTV is still slated to produce Wuthering Heights California for next season, and Jim is creating yet another new musical based on the life of Greta Garbo. Greta Garbo The Musical is tentatively scheduled to open in 2002 in Stockholm, Sweden before, hopefully, moving to Berlin, London’s West End and Broadway. The show features a book by Warner Brown. Music will be composed and arranged by Michael Reed and Jim Steinman. The show’s director will be Scott Faris.
A WICKed Tribute!
John Wick, award-winning author and game designer (best known for his work on Legend of the Five Rings and 7th Sea for AEG), is developing a new Role Playing Game called Neverland and inspired by the music of Jim Steinman.
