|Anyone else see the movie trailer for ''The Confession Musical'' on Fathom Events, set for Feb. 20? Says it's ''filmed live on stage.''
It stars John Schneider, of ''The Dukes of Hazzard'' TV fame, and a couple of Broadway stints in ''Grand Hotel'' and ''Chicago.''
I guess ''Plain and Fancy'' isn't the only Amish-themed musical around. Found this description of ''The Confession'' online:
Based on the multimillion-selling book series written by Beverly Lewis and written for the stage by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Martha Bolton, ''The Confession'' tells the story of an Amish family in turmoil when their daughter, Katie Lapp, discovers she was adopted by an Englisher (not Amish) woman. Meanwhile, the woman, Laura Mayfield, heir to a vast fortune and on her death bed, is searching for her lost daughter to bequest her the estate. Standing between her is her gold-digging husband Dylan (played by John Schneider), who is plotting to claim the fortune for himself with the help of a hired imposter pretending to be the long-lost daughter. (Also stars Chondra Pierce as the maid and Colin Alexander as the butler.)
