A new musical adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's 'Gone with the wind', to be directed by Trevor Nunn, will open in London's West End in April 2008 with tickets to go on sale in September, it was announced last Friday.

Nunn is regarded as one of the top theatrical directors of recent times. His credits include 'Les Miserables', 'Cats', 'Starlight Express', 'Nicholas Nickleby', and 'Sunset Boulevard'.

A news release said that the GWTW production, featuring music and lyrics by unknown composer Margaret Martin, has been in development for three years. It quoted producer Aldo Scrofani as saying that it would "remain true to Margaret Mitchell's original story and characters while also revealing its relevance to our lives today." The 1939 movie adaptation of Mitchell's book is regarded as the most successful movie of all time.
