Trial Begins for Failed Musical ‘Rebecca’

On Monday a civil trial began for the failed Broadway musical, “Rebecca,” based on the 1938 novel by Daphne du Maurier, according to The New York Times.

Producers of “Rebecca” are in a civil suit with the show’s former publicist, Marc Thibodeau. Their claim is that Thibodeau sent anonymous emails to an investor back in 2012, insisting that he didn’t invest in the show because Thibodeau said he knew it would flop.

The show was announced back in 2008 and originally was to open in London with a budget of $16 million. That plan failed, which eventually led to a plan for “Rebecca” to open on Broadway with a lesser cost, at $12 million. Producers failed to raise enough money in early 2012.
