Original Cast Records DVD-R
Originally on VHS, we just had the show professionally transferred to two DVD-Rs in California and can now offer the 2-DVD-R set to you for the price of $19.95! A FOOTLIGHT EXCLUSIVE! (Note: The VHS of Which Witch was originally produced by Original Cast Records for distribution in the United States.)
(You will receive 2 plain DVD-Rs that we copy from the master here at Footlight Records.)
The VHS was a very early attempt at capturing a West End show in its original run (with its original staging, cast and choreography.) Even though the show was not a success - some even call it the biggest flop ever to appear in the West End - (harsh!) - it did have the shortest run of any commercially released video recording. We find it a terrific souvenir of the show - lavish! with good music and believable performances - it's a lively and provocative affair. There's never a dull moment in Which Witch.
London Production, Piccadilly Theatre.
Which Witch is a powerful tragedy of romantic passion set in 1397. It is based on an incident described in the witch-finders' handbook, Malleus Maleficarum, and tells of the young Italian Maria Vittoria and the German Bishop Daniel. Their love blossoms in Renaissance Rome, but ends in a deadly witch-hunt in Heidelberg.
The story is set against a back-drop of religious conflict in Europe. The witch-hunting fever is escalating, and thousands of innocent women are being burned at the stake. But love is in the air... (Which Witch flopped? Really? How could such a thing be?)
The video captures the last performance of Which Witch at the Piccadilly Theatre in London.
137 Minutes/NTSC Format DVD-R (Professionally Transferred in California from VHS to 1 dVD-Rs on October 7, 2014!)
