Second Staged Reading Performance

The Witches of Eastwick is a 2000 musical based on the novel of the same name by John Updike. It was adapted by John Dempsey (lyrics and book) and Dana P. Rowe (music), directed by Eric Schaeffer, and produced by Cameron Mackintosh.

The story is based around three female protagonists, the Witches Alexandra Spofford, Jane Smart, and Sukie Rougemont. During the story, their magical powers grow, and they eventually summon a devil-like character, Darryl Van Horne. The mysterious Darryl seduces each of the women in turn, teaching them how to further expand their powers, and creating a scandal in the town. The women come to realise that Darryl is corrupting them and the town, and resolve to exile him from their lives.
