The Scarlet Pimpernel

The Scarlet Pimpernel




The new Frank Wildhorn musical based on the novel of the same name by Baroness Orczy.


Story:

Marguerite St. Just and Sir Percy Blakeney marry before Percy finds out that his wife has betrayed his friend, the Marquis, to the guillotine. To make amends for his friend's death, Percy assumes the identity of "the Scarlet Pimpernel," saving others from the same fate and feigning foppishness as a disguise.
