Beautiful and Damned archiveThis evocative and glittering musical, set in the 1920's, follows the story of an outrageously glamorous and fashionable couple - The Scott Fitzgeralds. He's a successful young author and she's the stylish young wife who, together, become the envy of all with their high spending and high-flying lifestyle. They created their own world of enchantment. Scott christened the period The Jazz Age, and Zelda lived it. Yet the darker tale that lay behind the dazzling facade just begged to be told. British singer/songwriter Roger Cook (I d Like To Teach The World To Sing/Talking In Your Sleep) felt this was definitely the case and linking up with an old friend and fellow songwriter, Les Reed (It's Not Unusual/Delilah), along with bookwriter Kit Hesketh Harvey (The Vicar Of Dibley) they set about creating a musical out of the fabled couple who epitomised the triumph and the tragedy of the decade. Beautiful and Damned is a spectacular 'all new' musical, based on the tragic story of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, opening in London's West End in April 2004 following its critically acclaimed debut at Guilford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in 2003. Beautiful and Damned website.
