New Play About Amy Winehouse to Open in Denmark
The Danish Royal Theatre in Copenhagen will be the home of a debut play based on the life and tragic death of singer Amy Winehouse. The play is based on published materials and Winehouse’s public appearances, including interviews, acceptance speeches, concerts, newspapers, letters and, of course, her songs. The production will feature songs from the singer’s two studio albums, “Frank” and “Back to Black.” The play will open at the Red Room Theater in Copenhagen in January and actress Johanne Louise Schmidt will play the lead role. A spokesperson for the Winehouse family has confirmed that they have had nothing to do with the production.
