Pillars of the Earth as a musical
On 12 October 2016 a Danish musical adaptation of The Pillars of the Earth, Jordens Søjler, premiered at the Østre Gasværk Teater in Copenhagen.
I was profoundly intrigued to see how my story was transformed by the brilliant team of Thomas Høg, Lasse Aagaard and Sune Svanekier.
Jordens Søjler starred Maria Lucia Heiberg Rosenberg as Aliena, Laus Høybye as Jack. Other main roles included Caspar Phillipson as Prior Philip, Kasper Leisner as Tom Builder, Nicolai Jandorf as William, Andrea Pellegrini as Ellen.
The musical was performed 94 times – the run was extended four times – and was seen by 72 000 people. The last performance was on 29 January 2017.
