“Rebecca” the musical was supposed to be the next “Phantom of the Opera”, Broadway’s multi-billion dollar hit. Instead, “Rebecca” turned into one of the wildest, most bizarre, true-crime scandals the stage has ever seen.
When a multi-millionaire stranger suddenly dies, a fire is lit that ends up consuming everyone involved in the show. In Burnt, the story of “Rebecca” winds its way through secret stings, many courtrooms, prison and freedom — and when the smoke finally clears, we’re left to wonder: who is really to blame and how in the hell did this happen?
