The show is set in the tiny New England community of Eastwick, where three modern-day witches, to brighten up their lives, innocently plot and conjure over a heady brew of weak Martinis and peanut butter brownies. With the arrival of 'Darryl Van Horne', in whom their fantasies are made fresh, he makes them have so much fun that they are really flying! And then all hell breaks loose. Quite literally.

After seven months it was replaced with a scaled-down version and moved to the more intimate Prince of Wales Theatre. A number of scenes were re-written and the song “Who's the Man?1” was replaced with a rousing gospel number, “The Glory of Me”. At the same time Ian McShane left and was replaced by his understudy, Earl Carpenter. At the end of its first year a general cast change saw Clarke Peters take over as Darryl van Home and Josefina Gabrielle and Rebecca Thornhill replaced Lucie Arnaz and Maria Friedman. On Oct 27th, 2001 the show closed after a 15 month run. There had been a disastrous drop in ticket sales, attributed to a downturn in tourism following the September 11th Twin-Towers attack in New York.En savoir plus sur cette version
