Concert in the ‘Hamburger Kammerspiele’ on June 20th 2011, Masterclass and Workshop at Joop van den Ende Academy on June 17th and 18th 2011.
Scott Alan is the shooting star of New Yorks musical theater scene. Willemijn Verkaik had the idea to get Scott over to Germany quite some time ago. The two Icons of our Genre have known each other - so far only via internet. Scott had heard about the new Diva all the way in New York. Internationally - composers, writers and performers are fascinated by her work – how Willemijn overwhelmes the German audiences with her incredible voice. Her interpretation of the Role Elphaba in the German Stage Entertainment production of ’Wicked`turned her into an international musical theater Star. Scott contacted Willemijn, they mailed each other for quite some time, even rehearsed via video conference and finally – Scott hired her to be part of his new album. On ‘What I want to be when I grow up’ (Fall 2010) Willemijn performs ‘Watch Me Soar’ (www.scottalan.net).
The virtual friendship became a reality – made reality by RE:PRESENT. The two stars of musical theater met for the first time - in real life - in Hamburg - on the 20th June 2011.
